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!
