People count on the summer market weekly for not only terrific produce grown locally, but also seeing friends and neighbors! It's also a place for meeting new people, interested like you in stocking up with chiles, all sorts of fruits and vegetables.
Since our blog's founding, we've had as many as 38,000 visitors to our market platform. On months when the market is in operation (June to October each year), it's not unusual to have hundreds of visitors.
Folks might raise their eyebrows at a farmers market blog that tracks people as well as fruits and vegetables. Our blog notes who is buying, how they're preparing recipes, roasting heritage New Mexico chiles, and listening to vintage music. There's much more, and this is best referred to as community—people working together, remembering the old days, and creating a base for something new.
The Española Farmers Markets is an ongoing institution we can all be proud of, now and in the future. What a model of love!
Don't forget to spread the word: "See you at the 2019 market!"
