Friday, June 11, 2010


Monday, June 14th is Opening Day for the Espanola Farmers Market’s 2010 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, and other fresh foods.

We will have horno bread, pastelitos, honey, jams, USDA-certified grass-fed lamb and grass fed beef, dried chile, beans, blue corn meal and other special treats. We invite our customers to relax at the Market tables under the shade canopies or browse among the thirty Market stalls. This season we have additional parking at the back of the Market plaza.

This season, we will be building an horno in the Wildflower Garden area and we invite customers to speak with the Market Manager if they wish to adopt a wildflower oval to cultivate. 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.

In mid July, there will be two Market Days, Fridays from 2-7pm plus our regular Market Mondays. Each Market Day, children can select a free book at our Kids Book Exchange or customers can purchase a dollar raffle ticket for our Monthly Free Bag of Produce. 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!
