Miss Shopping at El Paso Farmers Market? Neighboring City Provides Option
Between the Upper Valley Artist & Farmers Market on pause until the first weekend in June and the city keeping the Downtown Art and Farmers Market closed until further notice, those who like their veggies and fruits direct from local farmers don’t have that option.
But if you don’t mind a short drive to our neighboring city of Sunland Park, New Mexico, you do.
Ardovino's Desert Crossing has been hosting a farmers market every Saturday for the last 20 years. And while it’s a slightly different experience these days what with the whole COVID thing, they’ve adapted and adjusted to the world we’re living in, according to various posts on their Facebook.
At Farmer's Market at Ardovino's Desert Crossing we are committed to providing a safe environment for our neighbors in Dona Ana County and El Paso to purchase fresh produce, meats, baked items and other nutritious food items. We are practicing CDC and New Mexico Department of Health Guidelines. All vendor booths are at least 6 feet apart and we provide guides for 6 foot spacing to ensure the proper Social Distancing for all of our patrons.
If you miss fresh air shopping and organically grown alternatives from local farmers and growers and you’re ready to venture out, Farmers Market at Ardovino’s Desert Crossing happens every Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.
FYI, face coverings are mandated in New Mexico, too. And please be considerate of other’s need for personal space.
