Its year round home is Santa Fe's Railyard, a wonderful urban area that boasts interesting restaurants, museums, artists studios, shops and over 13 acres of open spaces for public enjoyment.
This is a real railyard, however. One must not forget that fact, one must take care while strolling the area, ogling the beautiful produce, the colorful people, the studio offerings.
And....in case you do forget where you are, signs abound. While we were there a passenger train sailed right past us, quite silently.
So, back to the Farmer's Market. The variety of goodies is overwhelming at first. To settle ourselves and think about what we wanted/needed to buy we bought coffee and sweetie (for second cup) and found a quiet spot behind the Market Pavilion.
Refreshed, we waded back into the crowds and commenced filling our bag with wonderful things. Lettuce, easter egg radishes, big fresh stalks of rhubarb, peas, lavender oil, two slices of peach/cherry and rhubarb raspberry pie. All we needed for dinner was a quick stop at Whole Foods for a thick NY Strip steak.

I'm sorry we won't be here next Saturday to do more shopping, we'll miss this market!
We'll also miss the spectacular sunset views from our site. Even Beluga enjoys them.
