The 2016 Market season has opened for the year!

The Española Farmers Market opened on June 6, 2016 for its current season and will continue hosting Monday Markets, 10 am-5 pm during every Monday through October 31, 2016 at 1005 North Railroad Avenue. 

Come meet old friends, visit with farmers, sample freshly-picked fruits and vegetables and help us launch our twenty-first 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 again be 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 and 2015 Market postcard will be available and you will also be able to find free bilingual recipe cards at the Market stalls, giving 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

On July 15, the Market will expand to a twice-weekly market, thus adding our Friday Afternoon Market, 2-7pm through Friday September 16th. Join your neighbors and friends at the Española Farmers Market. Every Market is a special day!
