The May 6 market will feature seasonal produce like lettuce and peas, as well as dried apples, apple juice, honey, meat, various baked goods, and more.
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, extra precautions will continue to be implemented in accordance with the state and New Mexico Farmers Market Association. This includes proper distancing between booths, food pre-bagged for pickup, masks and gloves for all food handling, and other measures that minimize touchpoints. Additionally, the Los Alamos Farmers Market will be providing locally made hand sanitizer to each booth, and an electric handwashing station will be available to the public. Masks are required when visiting the market.
As one of the oldest farmers markets in New Mexico, the Los Alamos Farmers Market was started in 1970 and is a great place to buy local foods and other goods, and to support regional growers and producers.
