People to the Plaza Initiative Bringing Farmers Market to the Plaza

This Sunday’s one-day market will feature local growers, crafts, prepared food and more

The latest event in Mayor Javier M. Gonzales’ People to the Plaza initiative will be a one-day Plaza Farmers’ Market this Sunday from 8:00am-1:00pm.

Mayor Gonzales said, “The Plaza as we know it today was shaped by agriculture and commerce for hundreds of years. I for one can’t wait to look out over it this Sunday and see fresh, local produce from Northern New Mexico’s farms and gardens bringing local Santa Feans back together in the heart of our community.”

Approximately 25 vendors from the Santa Fe Farmers’ Market, which is held year-round at the Railyard every Tuesday and Saturday and features hundreds of local food growers and artisans, will be on hand on Sunday for this special event.

Those vendors expected include:

Anna Mae Salazar – traditional crafts and flowers
Freshies – local organic fruit
Intergalactic Baking Co. – flatbreads and salsas
Jubilee Farm – beets, garlic, and storage crops
KJ Farm – fresh eggs
Love & Leche – soaps and balms
Mi Yung – kimchi tacos and produce
Monte Vista Organics – certified organic flowers and produce
Old Windmill Dairy – award-winning goat and cow cheese
Red Mesa Meats – Grass-fed meats and ready-to-eat tasty treats
Rocio Alcantar – decorations, flowers and produce
Santa Cruz Farm – roasted green chile and certified organic produce
Valley Garlic Oil –locally-pressed garlic oil
And many more!

All of Santa Fe is encouraged and invited to come out to the Plaza to support your local growers.

To help Santa Feans get to the Plaza on Sunday morning, all regular Sunday routes of the Santa Fe Trails bus service will run for free from 7:00am – 1:00pm, and will start two hours earlier than their regularly scheduled time.

The earliest Sunday bus is usually at 8:30am, but will begin running at 7:00am this weekend.

For questions, contact Paolo Speirn with the Santa Fe Farmers Market, visit, or find the Market on Facebook.
