Las Cruces Farmers Market
Wouldn’t it be great to have the number one large farmers markets right around the corner and easily accessible? Fortunately, we have one! The Las Cruces Farmers and Crafts Market has won multiple awards over the past few years and has become a staple of Las Cruces living.
The market started in 1971 when a group of the local farmers decided to sell directly to the community. As Las Cruces grew so did the Farmers market and what started as a small group has grown to over 50 vendors on Wednesday and burgeoning to over 200+ vendors on the Saturday Market.
A benefit the Farmers and Crafts Market has is that it is located in New Mexico which has a long growing season. This means that the market can stay open year-round! A little more locally, the market is located in downtown Las Cruces. This location gets a huge amount of foot-traffic during the week, which is why the market is also open on Wednesdays, and is also extremely accessible to a large number of people at once.
The Las Cruces Farmers and Crafts Market has become not just a market the benefits the local economy but also a huge weekly social interaction and entertainment event.The market provides food, friends, family, music, and entertainment for all ages.
