“Great Farmer's Market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Las Cruces Farmer's Market, in my opinion, is one of the best attractions in the entire city (probably second only to the Organ Mountains). It has expanded over the years to now included several blocks of Main Street and you can spend several hours perusing vendors, listening to music, or just people watching. It is heavy on arts & crafts, though there are some vendors that sell produce & plants. The one thing I would like to see more of is produce vendors since that would be a draw to return weekly, rather than just once in a while. There is always a long line for kettle corn, but the other food vendors are good too - you can get traditional New Mexican food (green chile quesadillas, enchiladas, etc.), Belgian waffles, biscochitos (the New Mexican state cookies... really good). If you get tired of the market, you can pop into one of the nearby museums or restaurants for a different scene. The Farmer's Market is held on Saturdays and Wednesdays (its not as big on Wednesday so try to go on Saturday) and is must-see if you are in town!

“Lots of Unique items”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

You must go to the Las Cruces Farmers Market at least once. There is so many neat homemade items to purchase. We live here and every Saturday morning we wake up and walk around the farmers market. We purchase unique items we might not find any where else for our home and for gifts for family and friends. We like to buy a hot dog from the hot stand and bag of kettle corn. It is such a neat place to visit and enjoy the morning. Go before 12:30 pm or you will miss out on alot.

“Best in New Mexico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Our farmer's market has really grown through the years. You can find a wide variety of hand made items and some of these vendors are really talented! You can purchase the freshest produce wen in season as well as a wide variety of plants. Well behaved (mostly) dogs join their owners for a social visit and there are always adoptable animals at the one end of the market. A must do on Saturday mornings!
