News and Notes From Your Eldorado Farmers’ Market Team 

It’s going to be a hot one Friday, so remember to stay hydrated, put on some sun block and have your sun hats ready so you can enjoy yourself at the market. Last week, A Bee Honey, V’s Organic Farm, Tony’s Farm & Joel Gonzales Farm returned to the market. This week, the big news is that Crumpackers Bakery returns! The pies, quiches, pickles, and other goodies we have all come to love will all be available starting this Friday. Welcome back, Keegan! We missed you! For our Cloud Cliff Bakery customers: Sally is back this week! All is good and we can all get our pizzas and breads. And for our Challah bread fans – The Santa Fe Jewish Center- Chabad will be at the market this week. Thank you, Rabbi Levertov and family, for joining us at the market. Red Barn Ranch plans to be at the market with a fresh assortment of ground beef & other cuts. They also will be taking reservations for October quarter bundles of beef & half lamb bundles for August. Carol from White Duck Farm says she will have a spinach salad mix, eggs, remedios and goat milks soaps. If people still want chicks they can call Carol at 575-421-0100 ad she will bring them to market. Price is $7.00 each for straight run. Lulu from A Bee Honey/Costanza Farm will have several varieties of fresh honey, honey stix and Osha honey syrup. Lulu also wanted you to know that she will have free honey stix for the children, too! Thank you, Lulu! Laura Shubert’s Gardening will return next week. For a list of vendors for this week, please see below. (And remember, you never know who else will show up!) Note: many vendors are selling out before 6:30pm, so it’s best to get to the market earlier so you won’t miss out on your favorites. We have been closing between 6:00-6:15pm the last few weeks—just a heads up! Just as a reminder, here are the current rules we are following at the market. As restrictions ease up, rules will change. To protect others, stay home if you are sick. Please wear a face mask when you are at the market. THIS IS A MUST!!! No customer handling of products. No reusable produce bags for the vendor to fill at this time. Personal shopping bags are fine. Do not place your personal bags on vendors’ tables. All vendors and staff must wear masks and gloves. All vendors must have hand-washing stations or hand sanitizer on hand. The Hot Dog Stand will sell to-go items only. There is no seating or tables available for eating or socializing. This Week At The Market New distancing measures mean that some of your vendors locations may be in a different spot from last year.

With award-winning honey and other produce at her table, Lulu’s fans always look forward to her arrival at the market.
