Every Saturday, 9:00 - 11:00am in the Village Park
Jemez Springs does have a Farmers Market every Saturday from 9 to 11 plus AM. We always will have the cinnamon rolls from Highway 4 cafe, hot coffee, dried fruits and nuts, plus whatever else that is ripe and in season that we can get folks to share at the market. This week Karen Menczer will be bringing fresh picked blackberries that were grown in Canon. Doug will have his delicious greens, carrots, and herbs. Jemez Mountain Flowers will have blue lisianthus and their wonderful skin care products. Lupe will not be there, BUT WILL send her chickens' eggs to be sold. The ever faithful Dr. Deb will have her products, plus her massage chair. We may have someone new this week with essential oils and homemade beauty products. Maybe I'll bring a few pieces of jewelry that I made. Plus, any of you out there, if you have anything you grow or make, please feel free to bring it down and join us, or leave any produce with us to sell for you at the Community Table. No amount is too small - a few bunches of greens, a few pieces of squash, a couple of carrots, whatever, if you grew it, we'll sell it for you (as long as it's legal). So come on down and discover what we have this week. It's always fun, so if nothing else, spread joy......
Hope to see you all Saturday,
The Farmers Market will be held through the end of September at the Village Park in the center of town. Look for the sign:
On Sunday, August 9, the quaint and sleepy village of Jemez Springs—popularly known for its hot springs, hiking, and art galleries, comes alive with the 12th annual Pueblo Independence Day Celebration starting with a 7am pilgrimage run from Jemez Pueblo Plaza to Jemez Historic Site. Visitors to this free annual free event will also enjoy traditional Native dances, dine on authentic Native food, and shop Native arts and crafts.
Three hundred and thirty-five years ago on August 10 and 11, 1680, the Pueblo People of New Mexico, aided by some Apache and Navajo allies, launched a successful rebellion against Spanish colonization. This 12th annual Pueblo Independence Day Celebration commemorates this historic event which shaped the course of New Mexico state history. Jemez Historic Site ranger Marlon Magdalena said, “Celebrating the day pays tribute to the Ancestors and shows appreciation for their sacrifices. Their brave resistance helped preserve the Pueblo way of life: our culture, our languages and our right to one day reclaim our aboriginal lands.”
The Jemez Valley at the peak of fall colors is the backdrop for the Jemez Mountain Trail Sale (formerly known as the 26 –Mile Trail Sale). Now in its 12th year, the Trail Sale is a miles-long yard sale that starts in San Ysidro and meanders through the beautiful Jemez Valley to LaCueva and beyond. This year’s event is scheduled for October 17 – 18, 2015.
Truly a yard sale shopper’s dream, sellers will be set up at multi-vendor locations in business parking lots along NM State Highway 4 as well as in individual yard sale sites on private property. Shoppers will find everything from traditional yard sale treasures to handmade food, crafts and pottery.
Sellers from outside the Jemez Valley are welcome. If you would like to sell at this year’s Trail Sale, multi-vendor locations will be announced in the coming weeks.
