Have You Checked Out Your Local Farmer’s Market Yet?

Summer may not be completely here, according to the calendar, but it sure feels like it in New Mexico.  Today at 1:30pm it’s 101 degrees!  We need rain so badly!  Time for everyone to start doing some rain dancing!

This season, I am volunteering my time at the Santa Fe Farmer’s Market.  My job is to interview farmers and vendors.  These farmers and vendors are a hard working bunch, especially on Saturday’s.  Some of the booths are in the sun with not much shade.  And after interviewing a couple of the farmers, these guys are patient too!  Customers are the same no matter where you live.  Some are fun to talk to and others…, are well, let’s say a little more challenging.
