Apples are plentiful as the weather turned cold suddenly and the wind threatened to make vendors' booths tumble at the Espanola Farmers Market this week. The growing season is winding down. However, it's still possible to fill your fridge with the last of the summer veggies and prepare colorful salads with fresh ingredients.

The Espanola Farmers Market is part of a large network of people and organizations active in sustainable agriculture and bringing food to the table. One such farm is dedicated to growing food for community organizations in the Santa Fe area. It's The Community Farm, just north of Agua Fria and San Ysidro Crossing in the heart of Agua Fria Village where volunteers are busy picking produce to take to Food for Santa Fe, The Food Depot, Kitchen Angels, Saint Elizabeth Shelter, The Salvation Army, Saint John's Soup Kitchen and Bienvenidos Outreach.
