Espaňola Farmers Market will celebrate the first firing of the new Market Horno with special events from noon to 2 P.M. in the Wildflower Garden next to the horno. Dexter Trujillo will be roasting fresh corn and chile and other treats while musicians from Los Resolaneros play traditional norteňo music. Santa Clara poet Beata Tsosie-Peňa will also read some poems and we may have other surprise artists. Visitors can sample the fresh roasted goods from the horno, admire the beautiful new clay oven and also meet the students who helped construct the horno during eight Mondays of work. On Labor Day we celebrate the labor of the horno workers and of the many fine farmers, gardeners, honey producers and fruit growers who bring their produce to the Market each Monday and each Friday in season. The Horno + Wildflower Garden Project has been funded thanks to a grant from Northern Rio Grande National Heritage Area (NRGNHA) and support from New Mexico Community Foundation (NMCF).

All DAY FREE CHILE ROASTING: Labor Day is also a regular Market Day. We will have free chile roasting of any fresh local chile purchased at the market throughout the day, 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Please come visit us on your way back from the holiday weekend and stock up on vegetables and fresh fruit for the week. The market accepts WIC, Senior WIC, SNAP (formerly EBT) and Debit cards. Each Market Day, 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. We are now also open on Friday afternoons from 2-7pm. Come visit us! Every Market Monday  & every Market Friday is a special event!
