The Santa Fe Farmers Market in New Mexico

Vendors sell their local produce, breads, meats, herbs, and body care products every Saturday from 8 am to 1 pm, year-round, at the Santa Fe Farmers Market. Local honey, herbal tinctures, organic soap, fruits, vegetables, and baked goods are among the products for sale. Towards the back of the market building are a few permanent stores including a chocolate shop, a store dealing exclusively in teas, a gift shop, and a winery store.

The Santa Fe Farmers Market was a nice spot to take a stroll and check out some local products. It also provided a welcome respite on a cold and windy February morning. Although the market had a variety of goods, a quick chat with a local or a peak at the photos on the Santa Fe Farmers Market website will tell you that summer is a much better time to visit (unless you really hate crowds). Yesterday the streets outside the market were bare and very few people were around. In summer, crowds browse vendor tents lining the sidewalk.
