Taos NM has one of the most colorful & charming farmers markets I have visited. I believe this is a true reflection of our community. Farmers from northern NM gather to share their produce, honey, meats, cheeses & artisan breads with those who find there way here every Saturday morning. There are also fresh flowers, scrumptious snacks and small handcrafted items for sale.
Bumping into friends and neighbors to catch up, and having relationships with our local farmers, helps to continue the wonderful connection we have with the community at large, with each other and with the land from which this bounty flows. The fast pace we all keep slows just a little and these Saturday mornings can be rejuvenating in so many ways.
Since I'm a cook I'm continually searching for new and different ingredients. What I do not grow at my home I can easily supplement at the market or from a friends garden.
The beauty of the Taos area is diversity. Its found not only in the mixed cultures we share, but also in the choices of homes available for home buyers. Some properties have water rights, others are built from adobe, straw bales and even recycled materials. Some have room for guests, others for horses. Almost all have Views, and we all share the clear blue skies and clean air so abundant out here.
It's your choice, A large hacienda style house w/ organic gardens and animals galore? An acequia running through your back yard so you can grow fruit trees? Or maybe a condo in town that's a short walk to the farmers market where others do the hard labor and you bring it all back home to enjoy!
Whatever your preference it's here in Taos. Where enchanting is just one way to describe what your experience will be!
