Santa Fe Farmers Market
Santa Fe’s agricultural heritage extends back thousands of years, and that heritage is expressing itself as richly as ever these days. Today residents and visitors alike can enjoy the bounty of our northern New Mexico foodshed in myriad ways, not least in Santa Fe’s fabulous lineup of restaurants—our own eateries here at La Posada de Santa Fe most assuredly among them.
But fine dining is by no means the only way to appreciate what that foodshed has to offer. The Santa Fe Farmers Market is a wonderful year-round showcase for our region’s farmers, ranchers, foragers, food artisans, and other producers, and it all goes down within easy reach of your luxury resort accommodations here at the Art Hotel of Santa Fe!
The Santa Fe Farmers Market: A Year-Round, Decades-Old Institution
One of the highpoints of Santa Fe’s community calendar, the farmers market came to life back in the 1960s and has only grown in the decades since; it now enjoys national acclaim. At its permanent perch in the Railyard, the Santa Fe Farmers Market runs every Saturday: 7 AM to 1 PM through the end of this month, then kicking off an hour later (8 AM) from October through May. The Tuesday market in the same location and with the same timetable continues through November, while the Wednesday evening market (4 to 8 PM) keeps going at the Railyard through October. (In summer, you can also enjoy the Southside Market every Tuesday from 3 to 6 PM.)
Autumn Ripeness Means Across-the-Board Goodness
This is the height of the harvest season, and thus an unbeatable time to sample Santa Fe’s agriculture. Apples (and, naturally, a host of apple products) are at their peak, as are a dizzying variety of vegetables: tomatoes, eggplant, carrots, peppers, squash, and all sorts of delicious greens. And that’s on top of the Santa Fe Farmers Market’s diverse dairy and meat offerings (everything from beef and chicken to buffalo, goat, and yak), plus all manner of baked delicacies, honey, salsas, jams, tea, and other value-added delights.
Besides foodstuffs of every description, you’ll find vendors selling various craft products, flowers, house plants, and nursery starts.
