As a working model of small-scale urban food production, the Farm serves as an agricultural education center, applying appurtenant water rights to 11 agricultural acres in the high desert southwest, with a commitment to charitable donation of fresh fruits and vegetables to the hungry, homeless, and disabled of the area.
The market that began with a handful of farmers in the late 1960s is now New Mexico’s largest farmers’ market and one of the most widely recognized markets in the United States.
The Santa Fe Farmers Market represents over 150 active vendors and features hundreds of different agricultural products. To further meet Santa Fe’s demand for fresh, local produce, the Market began operating year-round in 2002, and with more and more farmers using extended growing techniques, the “off season” becomes more successful every year.
