A BLAST FROM THE PAST:
Farmers and friends of the Española Farmers Market celebrated the 19th annual Biggest Vegetable and Poem Contest last year in 2018. This year is the 20th contest. Who's going to win this year?
Last year Ross Vargas of La Madera grew the biggest pumpkin. Loranzo Quintana of Cuartales made the best ristra with a scarecrow figure holding a chain of chile peppers. Rudy Cordova picked the biggest apple from his orchard in Hernandez.
The market annual postcards continue to be popular. They are remainders of great summer seasons in the past.
