SANTA FE FARMER’S MARKET

I spend every Christmas with my family in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  Santa Fe is one of my favorite places in the world.  The elevation of Santa Fe is 7,199 feet, so it is normally really cold and snowy during the winter.  It’s a peaceful escape from D.C., but certainly not a warmer one.

The culture in Santa Fe is extremely diverse and heavily influenced by Native American and Mexican tradition.  There is also a major art and artisan community here.  A wealth of talented painters, sculptors, jewelry designers and textile makers all live and work here.  Its a very low-key place with a lot of people living here who care deeply about their environment and craft.  New Mexico also has a large agriculture community, being most famous for their chilies.  All of these influences are represented at one of my favorite places in Santa Fe, the Santa Fe Farmer’s Market.  The market normally takes place every Saturday with vendors from around New Mexico and surrounding states.  Everything from produce, baked goods, jewelry, homeopathic remedies, and brightly colored wraps and textiles are sold at the market.  For Christmas, they had a special market on Tuesday so folks could get last minute gifts and food for the holiday.

More Information about the Santa Fe Farmer’s Market:

“The market that began with a handful of farmers in the late 1960s is now New Mexico’s largest farmers’ market and one of the most widely recognized markets in the United States.

The Santa Fe Farmers Market represents over 150 active vendors and features hundreds of different agricultural products. To further meet Santa Fe’s demand for fresh, local produce, the Market began operating year-round in 2002, and with more and more farmers using extended growing techniques, the “off season” becomes more successful every year.

The Santa Fe Farmers Market assures that all products sold by its vendors are always locally grown by the people selling them. 100% of the vegetables, fruits, and nursery plants available at Santa Fe Farmers Markets are grown right here in northern New Mexico. The same goes for at least 80% of the ingredients and materials used to make all processed and craft items.

Santa Fe Farmers’ Market does not allow reselling. That means that the people doing the growing and producing are the same smiling folks who sell those products to you at Market. Got a question about how your food is grown? You’re at the right place, because at the Santa Fe Farmers Market, the salesperson is also the farmer!

The Santa Fe Farmers Market is proud of its high standards. When you shop at Santa Fe Farmers Markets, you are making the educated and healthy choice both for yourself and for our northern New Mexico community.”
