Sunday, June 7, 2009


Monday, June 15th is Opening Day for the Espanola Farmers Market’s 2009 season. We invite the public to visit the Market at 1005 N. Railroad Avenue from 10 am- 5pm and enjoy the first fresh fruits and vegetables of the season -quelites, sweet peas, lettuce, mixed greens, onions, garlic, herbs, peaches, apricots, plums and other fruits.

We will have horno bread (we welcome the return of our Pueblo horno bread baker), pastelitos, honey, jams, USDA-certified grass-fed lamb, dried chile, beans, blue corn meal and other special treats.

We have enlarged the market area to create a shady comfortable plaza with spaces for thirty vendors, more shade canopies, tables and chairs for our customers, and additional public parking spaces. A wildflower garden will grow this summer, as students work with farmer/mentors to shape and plant the garden near the Market entryway.

The Market accepts WIC, Senior WIC, SNAP (formerly EBT) and Debit cards. Espanola Farmers Market will be open every Monday, including holidays, from mid-June through October. Children can select a free book at our Kids Book Exchange. We also have a colorful selection of Market aprons, tee shirts or post cards and issues of A Farming Chapbook from previous Market seasons. Come visit us! Every Market Monday is a special event!
