Where to Shop and Support Local at El Paso-Area Farmers Markets In April
The return of a night market and the Downtown Art and Farmers Market this month means El Pasoans who like their veggies and fruits direct from local farmers have even more weekly farmers markets to shop for local goodness at in April.
Country Club Farmers Market expands its market offerings with the weekly Night Market on Friday and Saturday evenings in the same location it holds its Saturday morning market. Now those who have to work, have chores to do, or errands to run on a weekend mid-afternoon can also stock up on seasonal produce and buy locally made arts and crafts.
The City of El Paso relaxing restrictions on the use of certain city facilities and services, and transitioning from COVID crisis to COVID coexistence means the Downtown Art and Farmers Market has finally gotten the go-ahead to reopen after a year-long shutdown. The city sponsored market will return turn to its traditional Saturday spot and hours beginning April 10.
Other options for outdoor market shopping while taking in the mostly pleasant weather spring time in El Paso offers include County Club Farmers Market, Upper Valley Artists and Farmers Market, and Farmers Market at Ardovino’s Desert Crossing on the west side. Eastsiders who don't want to make the drive across town have the Desert Artisan & Farmer's Market to call their own.
And if you’re up for a short road trip to our neighboring city of Las Cruces, the Farmers & Crafts Market of Las Cruces has numerous vendors slinging their wares and organically grown alternatives in a fresh air shopping setting as well.
