The Espanola Farmers’ Market will be roasting chile purchased at the Market free on Monday, August 29th. Market hours are 10am-5pm. Customers can purchase a variety of heirloom chile, including specialty chile from Chimayo, Hernandez, Velarde, Dixon and other communities. They can also browse for other fine produce- corn, sweet peas, lettuce, mixed greens, onions, garlic, herbs, atole, tomatoes, pumpkins, potatoes and other fresh foods. We have horno bread, pastelitos, honey, jams, USDA-certified grass-fed beef, dried chile, beans, blue corn meal and other special treats. We are also offering lunch each Monday and a growing market on Friday afternoon from 2-7pm. Thanks to a grant from Pojoaque Valley Fund and New Mexico Community Foundation, three students worked weekly in our Wildflower Garden and also helped prepare the irrigated fields behind the Market plaza for cultivation next year. Visit the Wildflower Garden in bloom now. 

The Market accepts WIC, Senior WIC, SNAP (formerly EBT) and Debit cards. August 29th is also the last day to redeem any Double Bonus tokens awarded earlier in the month. 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 and every Friday Afternoon Market are special events!
