June 15th opens the 2009 season for the Espanola Farmers Market. The theme of the season is "MORE." There will be more vendors, more shade, more chairs for sitting and visiting. For example, there will be 14 canopies comparied to four last year. The participation in the market dramatically increased after the move to the new location. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available! During the summer and fall, the Espanola Farmers Market is open every Monday from 10 am until 5pm, including holidays, throughout the growing season. We are located at 1005 N. Railroad Avenue just down the street from the corner with Fairview.
