No matter your reason for visiting Santa Fe – whether it be to see the art or ski the slopes – set aside some time to check out the Santa Fe Farmers Market. Open throughout the year, you'll find dozens of vendors selling everything from locally grown produce, flowers and cheeses to cider and tongue-numbing green chile salsa. There is also a snack bar selling coffee and other local treats.
Recent visitors were supremely impressed by this farmers market, especially with the variety of fresh produce and the stimulation of the senses (from colorful veggies and fruits to the aromas of fresh flowers and spices). The only downside, according to some travelers, was that the venue was packed with people; many suggested getting there early to avoid the crowds.
Located about a mile southwest of the Santa Fe Plaza, the Santa Fe Farmers Market's days of operation depend on the season, but it is open Saturdays year-round from 7 or 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. (It's also open on Tuesdays from May to November.) Entry is free, but you might have trouble holding on to your cash with so much mouthwatering food for sale. There is parking available on-site for a small fee, and the free Santa Fe Pick-Up shuttle stops nearby. For a more definitive schedule and information on vendors and events, visit the Santa Fe Farmers Market website.
