Every year the Española Farmers Market publishes a postcard featuring the farmers and friends of the market. In 2018, the market celebrated its 19th annual biggest vegetable and best poem contest. Last year Ross Vargas of La Madera grew the biggest pumpkin. Loranzo Quintana of Cuartales made the best ristra with a scare crow holding the glorious chain of chile peppers. Rudy Cordova picked the biggest apple from his orchard in Hernandez.
Here is last year's market postcard:
Some highlights of the market in a single postcard. Stop by the market information table to get your own postcard as a souvenir of the summer.
Hope that you haven't forgotten the "Biggest Vegetable and Best Poem Contest" each year and how it is an event worth celebrating. Check in with us this fall for the date of the big celebration in October. Stop by the market information booth weekly for children's books, market news, and great conversation. The market is open Mondays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., through October.
