From the first hour we were in Santa Fe, my wife, Brenda, said that we must go to thein the Santa Fe rail yard. I was glad we went because the Santa Fe plaza was filled with white-tented craft booths and in the evenings we could not enjoy strolling in the plaza. There was a pleasant display of crafts, but no opportunity to stroll on the plaza. Another evening, another trip for that. So it was off to Farmers’ Market early Saturday morning.
The Farmers’ Market meets all expectations for food and merriment and good all-around fun for a Saturday morning! I took photographs. Brenda purchased garlic oil, leeks, dried apple chips, basket, a garlic chain and sage-lavender soap. We put the leeks in our cooler in the room under ice so that we could have leek soup when we returned to our ranch. Chili peppers? Well, we had them at every meal in Santa Fe, from Cafe Pasqual’s to Lumanaria. Oh, boy, how great it is, a movable feast in Santa Fe.
Here are few more photos of the market. I’ve read some of my blogger friends lately that have hankered for chili and New Mexico. So, for you, here are some photos to whet you appetite before you book for travel.
