News from the New Mexico's #FarmersMarkets

The August newsletter is here and the next Mountainair Farm & Garden Market is almost here too: 8-11am August 27, just around the corner from the annual Sunflower Festival featuring art, vendors, live music, the Community Library's annual book sale and more. Check the festival schedule and make a day of it. 

Vendors and home bakers considering vending: take advantage of licensing waiver for one day events: bring out your best baked goods to sell.

Peak Season is Here
If you have not yet been to a farmers' market this season, now is the time to go. From now until mid-September is considered "peak season," which means that markets have a lot to offer, including perennial favorites such as green chile, corn, and tomatoes. Find out where and when to find your local market on our website,

August 11 MFGM Meeting Notes

Notes from the August 11 meeting (only marginally better attended than community gardening meeting a few weeks earlier). Many thanks to Monica for taking and sending notes. More market musings anon. I also have planned an educational series on market questions. Feel free to submit yours. 

Steering committee members and interested readers are welcome to question, research and comment on any points raised in meeting notes. Ditto come to meetings and volunteer. Above all ~ support our weekly local market as vendor, shopper or visitor. Tell others about the market and ask them to support it too.
