The Española Farmers Market is opening on June 5th, 2023 for its current season and will continue hosting Monday Markets, 9am-2pm every Monday through October 30th, 2023 at 1005 North Railroad Avenue. Come meet old friends, visit with farmers, sample freshly picked fruits and vegetables and help us launch our twenty-fifth market season. Don Bernardo y los Ultimos as well as other musicians will be serenading us at midmorning. 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 Fresh Rx 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. Our market manager, Sabra Moore, is going into her 23rd year.
