It's the 2015 Espanola Farmers Market's June 15th opening!

The Española Farmers Market opens on June 15, 2015 for its current season and will continue hosting Monday Markets, 10 am-5 pm during every Monday through October 26, 2015 at 1005 North Railroad Avenue. Come meet old friends, visit with farmers, sample freshly-picked fruits and vegetables and help us launch our twentieth market season. Don Bernardo y los Ultimos will be serenading us at midday. You will find fresh onions, peas, quelites, chile, horno-roasted chicos, fresh chard, salad greens, berries, grass-fed lamb and other treats. We accept WIC, Senior WIC, EBT (SNAP) and Debit as well as cash money. This season we will offering Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB) for SNAP customers. Each time you swipe your SNAP card, you will get an equal amount of bonus DUFB for purchasing fruits and vegetables.

Children will be able to select a book from our free Kids’ Book Exchange. The 2014 Market postcard will be available and you will also be able to find free bilingual recipe cards at the Market stalls, giving you ideas for how to prepare some of the tasty produce. We will have various foods cooking in the horno during periodic Market days. You can stroll in our wildflower garden or wander behind the plaza to see what is growing in the community fields. During the second week of July, the Market will expand to a twice-weekly market with our Friday Afternoon Market, 2-7 pm on Friday July 17th through Friday September 18th. Join your neighbors and friends at the Española Farmers Market. Every Market is a special day!
