Celebrate National Farmers Market Week!

Price List for Los Poblanos Organics

Did you know that National Farmers Market Week is August 1-7? See USDA Proclamation

Does that mean that today, Saturday, August 7, is the last day to celebrate? Far from it!  You can continue celebrating clear into the fall. In fact, many folks from around the country have joined in the celebration. 

According to the USDA, there are now 6,132 farmers markets across our land? That represents a sixteen percent increase over the number recorded in the National Farmers Market Directory in 2009.

My favorite in Albuquerque is the Downtown Growers Market, held at Robinson Park.  In honor of Farmers Market Week, I took a couple of pictures this morning.
