If you haven't gone to the Downtown El Paso Art and Farmers Market, this weekend is the time to try it out. Not only can you get locally grown and raised produce and agricultural products, but you'll be able to celebrate National Food Day. It's a day that is set aside to celebrate and enjoy fresh foods instead of eating the processed or packaged foods we so often choose to eat.

The National Food Day event is free and there are a lot of activities you can take advantage of:

  • 9 a.m.: Kidical Mass with Velo Paso Bicycle Pedestrian Coalition
  • 9-10:30 a.m.: Live performance by Covergirl Miss Dee Monique
