The first La Jara Farmers Market this past Friday afternoon and evening got off to a great start with Donald Garcia entertaining everyone with his musical talents. There were many San Luis Valley vendors selling fresh fruits and vegetables, and beautiful locally made handcrafts! If you haven’t made it to the La Jara Farmers Market yet, be sure to mark your calendar for this Friday afternoon and evening—that’s 3:00 to 7:00 PM. The Farmers Market is located at the park by the La Jara Town Hall. The Town Hall Park is a perfect central location for market vendors and shoppers alike. There’s plenty of parking and it’s just a short walking distance to in-town businesses.
This Friday, Rose Viapando and Solomon Lopez of Las Cancioneros Del Valle will be performing at the market starting at 4:00 PM. Be sure to be on hand to enjoy their Spanish and Gospel favorites. In the upcoming weeks there will be other exciting performers. This season Lowdead Zaragoza and the Atomic Pork bands will bring lively entertainment to the La Jara Farmers Market. Later throughout the summer season, Paul Guzman, a new entertainer to the San Luis Valley from California, Kate Mann from New Mexico and Rhonda Mouser have promised to join the line-up of exciting musical performers.
The La Jara Market runs from 3:00 to 7:00 PM every Friday until the 7th of September. Don’t forget the market is conveniently located in downtown La Jara by the La Jara Town Hall.
