Our annual market opens the first week in June 2023!
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. Children will be able to select a book from our free Kids’ Book Exchange. The 2022 Market postcard will be available and you will also be able to find free bilingual recipe cards at the Market stalls, giving you ideas for how to prepare some of the tasty produce. We will have various foods cooking in the horno during periodic Market days; you can stroll in our Wildflower Garden or wander behind the plaza to see what is growing in the Community Fields. Join your neighbors and friends at the Española Farmers Market. Every Market is a special day! IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, ASK SABRA MOORE. (505) 685-4842

We document the past and carry our market memories into the future. . .
The Española Farmers Market isn't here and gone tomorrow. We're getting closer to preparing for the 2023 market season. We have been blogging for the past 15 years and we have been setting up fruit and produce tables for much longer. Our market video has been a hit and now we can look back at it, remember those who are no longer with us, and appreciate the MANY folks who have made the market what it has been and what it is becoming.

Having guests from out of town? Show them the Española Farmers Market!
The fall is a terrific time to invite friends and relatives from out of town to visit the Española Farmers Market with you. You can tell them that we won the best market desaignation in New Mexico in 2019. You can mention that our market video has been featured on a film website in Australia and the news of our accomplishments have been viewed around the world. You can show them the results of our constant additions over the years including an on-site bathroom. And the horno. Point that out. Tourists from out of town contact us to experience the local offerings. Wow. What an idea! You aren't alone.

It seems like the 2022 Española Farmers Market will last a long time, but don't be fooled! We plod on during our 24th season!
We set up outdoors in the city of Espanola, New Mexico, and operate from June through October on Mondays through the end of October 2022. When many businesses have closed or are operating at partial capacity, we are adjusting. Sometimes locals order from online herb businesses for difficult to find items. One example is the Rio Grande Herb Company in Albuquerque. Do a search on your computer. There are other similar businesses. One favorite is the "Herb Booklet: A Quick Reference Booklet of Traditional Remedies" written and compiled by Gerald Lovato and Phillip Sanchez Jr.

The fresh corn is maturing. Cook and eat corn picked the same day as you eat it!
Those fans and produce buyers at the Española Farmers Market have something special for all of us. We've said this before, and we're saying it again...The farmers market in the city of Española is one of Northern New Mexico's best kept secrets. We don't have to advertise the fun, the inexpensive available produce, and the special events scheduled all through the season. We know about it, and that's what counts. Folks tell others and the word gets around.
Española Farmers Market has great produce! from Marguerite Kearns on Vimeo.But you must get ready and plan ahead. Fresh steamed corn can be messy, but it sure is good. Turn your back on husked corn stored in plastic at your local food store. Ask Sabra when the fresh local corn is ready for harvest. Make sure you have the appropriate seasonings on hand. Invite friends and family members to share the bounty. Make the best of what the market offers.
