Living in Santa Fe means embracing its "market" culture.  From farmers' markets to art markets, Santa Fe was made for these kinds of cultural exchanges. The Santa Fe Farmers' Market is proud to be New Mexico's largest farmers' market and of the most widely recognized markets in the United States. With its unique offerings, community dedication and year-round availability, it is truly unlike any other farmers' market in the country.

Santa Fe holds some very high standards for its Farmers' Market, which may be what contributes to its success. Rule #1 - 100% products sold by its vendors are locally grown. Rule #2 - Craft items must use at least 80% of local ingredients and materials. Rule #3 - Only the people who grow and produce the products may sell the products.

If you're not convinced yet that Santa Fe has the very best Farmers' Market around, then maybe this will drive it home. CNN rated the Santa Fe Farmers Market in the top 10 in America's Best Farmers' Markets.

According to CNN, every region's farmers' market is known for that one distinctive food. For Santa Fe, it's our chili peppers. We boast the country's most diverse collection of chilies - which proves very important once we bring our loot from New Mexico market to New Mexico kitchen for some real southwestern cooking.

Santa Fe Indian Market
August 21-22
This may not be a Farmers' Market, but it is the ultimate art market - not just for Santa Fe, but for the entire nation of Native artists. 80 years going strong, the Santa Fe Indian Market has become the world's largest and most highly acclaimed Native American arts show and New Mexico's largest attended annual event. These great artists come from all sides of the country to gather in Santa Fe's Plaza, which often becomes the setting for getting "discovered."


Santa Fe is the perfect place for a Market of any kind - food, craft or otherwise. When one thinks of a market, they envision an open atmosphere, neighbors conversing, fresh local produce, and an inviting environment. This is essentially what Santa Fe is all about.
