Santa Fe Farmers Market – Another View Point

The Santa Fe Farmer’s Market opened with a handful of local farmers in the late 1960s. Today it is the largest farmer’s market in New Mexico with 150 active vendors. The market has been open year round since 2002.

The market offers a wide variety of seasonal produce as well as local meats, dairy, eggs, flowers and plant material. Vendors also sell a variety of baked goods, jams, jellies, honey and craft items; all made from locally sourced materials. The market requires that all produce be 100% locally grown and does not permit reselling. What that means to you is that the person who sells you the produce at the market is the farmer that grew the produce. All handmade food and craft items are required to be 80% locally sourced. That means that the food that you purchase at the market is the freshest available; much of it is picked in the morning before coming to market.

New techniques in extending the growing season mean that there are many more items available year round than ever before.

WIC and EBT cards are accepted at qualifying vendors.

The Santa Fe Farmer’s Market is open on Saturdays and Tuesdays from 8 am to 1 pm year round.
