A letter to the editor published in the Rio Grande Sun, after the season's closing!


Did you see the letter in the Española newspaper this week? Here it is...

 Dear Letters to the Editor:

Thank you to all the customers and growers that made Española Farmers Market vibrant this season. In a year of limited water and changeable weather, the farmers were able to use their well-honed skills to bring abundant harvests to the market each Monday. We also appreciate all the customers who used their SNAP benefit cards at the market; we redeemed $23,899.00 between SNAP and DUFB, distributing healthy local food to the community and amplifying sales for growers.

We also celebrated a public signing of our Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for a ten-year lease with Northern New Mexico College (NNMC) on the last market day of season that restored what had been a twenty-year lease in our original 2007 MOU.  

Española Farmers Market has occupied the site at 1105 North Railroad Avenue for over ten years. We were awarded this site through a New Mexico State Legislative Appropriation in 2006, “as a permanent site for the Espanola Farmers Market."

Due to the anti-donation clause of New Mexico State, the Market had to select a city, county or state entity as our fiscal sponsor for our legislative proposal. We chose NNMC. At the time, we were already participating in the NNMC Commercial Kitchen through our Jams & Jellies Cooperative and also wanted to honor the long history of NNMC as a land-grant college with an agricultural base. 

We look forward to a new decade of cooperation with NNMC that will strengthen our shared commitment to the rural-based cultures in the Española Valley.
