Kerry and Dave Nelson decided to take a year-long sabbatical away from their busy lives as lawyers and part- time builders in Philadelphia. On the fifth day of their road trip they came upon Salida, CO - and it was love at first sight. Four days later they bought an old building they turned into a quaint, iconic grocery store they named “Ploughboy”. Its specialty? Carrying organic foods produced in Colorado, preferably within a 100 mile-radius. While supporting the local economy, Kerry & Dave wanted to make local organic food accessible to both Salida's residents and its many tourists. Their plan seemed risky but eventually met with popular success, so much so that they received the 2013 “Nature’s Plate Award” for Colorado from the Nature Conservancy.
"If You Do One Thing: Swing by Ploughboy, a market and deli we raved about in “Moveable Feasts.” Pick up a lunch to pack for a hike (try the chipotle chicken salad sandwich; $6.99) and make plans to stop again on your way out of town to stock up on Colorado-produced goodies such as pasta and salsas."

Perfect little grocery with awesome beer on tap as well. Stopped in and grabbed some sourdough and habanero jack cheese for a snack with a 3 barrell pale ale to wash it down. Very spicy but amazingly good with the sourdough. Great little shop with good people.
