Love song for the Española Farmers Market in 2016!

This blog in its tenth year of publishing is a love song for the Española Farmers Market. The market has grown over the past twenty seasons and now the market is one of the highlights of Northern New Mexico. Welcome to our 21st season! Visit our YouTube and Twitter social media platforms.

As produce is gathered and brought to the market each week, we are nourishing our families with fresh food, just like our grandparents and the great grandparents did over the 20th century and before.

There's a deep and longing need to continue these traditions. Millions of people across America are enjoying the fruits of the soil and sharing these treasures in famers' markets. We have a special history at our market. You can see it in the photos going back to 2007. Oh, how proud we were during the move to our own location. Go to the right of this posting and scan the links to the past ten years. Wow. And if you're clueless about how to prepare certain dishes, ask the vendor about the market's bilingual recipe cards. Here's an example for bell peppers.

On Mondays, there's a ritual in Española. People set aside time to visit the market. The market is a sign of a quality of life we've grown used to. And we're taking advantage of every opportunity to kick up our heels this growing season. The market is open ten to five every Monday at 1005 North Railroad Avenue. We spread the word through this blog and Twitter.

This season we are 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.
