I’ve mentioned this before but one of my favorite things in the world are farmers markets and one of my favorite things about Santa Fe is its farmers market.
Santa Fe’s farmers market has really grown into a great market that highlights so many of the local farms and businesses around town. At this point in the summer the market is totally up and going and they’ve even started roasting green chile! If you are a native to New Mexico you know that sweet, sweet smell of roasting green chile in the air it’s seriously like heaven. If you are not a native to New Mexico then you’re kind of missing out and you should visit us late July-September so that you can experience it.
It’s the kind of smell that when you walk outside and the air is a little crisp and the wind brings the scent of the roasting chile you just totally crave it… instantly, on anything, by itself it just makes you need some asap.
I’m hungry just thinking and typing about it.
Anyway, our farmers market is 3 times a week: Tuesdays in the railyard 8am-1pm, southside 3pm-6pm and Saturdays in the railyard from 7-12pm
It’s the place you can find me almost every Saturday morning in the summer, picking up fresh lettuces, potatoes, onions, green chile, sage sticks… honey- you name it, it’s there and it’s just so delicious. If your local I hope I’ve inspired you to get out and enjoy the market and if you are visiting add the market to your ‘to do list’ it honestly won’t disappoint plus we are all trying to support being ‘local’ right?
