Head out this weekend and support local at these three local farmers' markets in El Paso.

Concerns over the novel coronavirus put a halt to outdoor farmers' markets over the summer but now three have reopened to the public as Upper Valley Artist and Farmers Market, Sunland Park Mall’s Farm & Flea Market, and the Farmers Market at Ardovino’s Desert Crossing are back in business.

Last weekend I was coming out of Sam’s and noticed that the Upper Valley Artist and Farmers Market was in full swing at the Hobby Lobby parking lot. I made a quick stop to walk around and noticed that everyone was social distancing and wearing their masks and hand washing and sanitizing stations were set up all over.
