Santa Fe Farmers Market

The Santa Fe Farmers Market is one of the main events in this popular tourist town in New Mexico. The thriving arts and culture scene here sets the market apart from many of its larger Southwestern peers. Every Tuesday and Saturday morning at the Santa Fe Railyard, artists set up shop alongside vendors selling locally grown produce and artisanal products such as jams, soaps and bakery goods. Musical performances, special events and kid-centered attractions lend the market a festival-like atmosphere. On Sundays the focus is on art during the Railyard Artisans Market, which takes place on the same grounds as the Farmers Market.
