Alibi's Locovore Market Report:

the Weekly Alibi's food section would have reviewed Mountainair's market last Saturday, afterthought to the main course, but, apparently, not having noted market hours arrived too late ....

"Locovore Market Report: Socorro packs its pleasant historic plaza.... But the clock had struck 10 a.m., and this critic had important business elsewhere in the universe—the Mountainair market, to be specific—so we didn’t have time to indulge in a leisurely marketside brunch.

Nor did we have time to stop at the truck stop at the Lemitar exit, just north of Socorro, which is reported to serve very good green chile.

Alas, when we got to Mountainair at 11 a.m., they were packing up. Like at most small markets I’ve been to in New Mexico, you have to get there early for the good stuff. So with empty bellies... we headed for home.
