If the La Jara Farmers Market were the best kept secret in the San Luis Valley then this summer’s seven-week market program wouldn’t be quite this much fun. Come to La Jara’s Town Hall for fresh fruits and vegetables, for up-to-date activities and information happening in the Valley from the Conejos County Chamber of Commerce. Come for the free taste treats from the Healthy Habits MOKI table, and come for the great music presented each week. And, this wonderful Friday afternoon and evening market program in La Jara has been made possible by the support of Little Flickers of Capulin, Joe Valdez of La Jara Pharmacy, the Conejos County Chamber of Commerce, Circle K Mills, everyone from Cactus Hill Ag Consulting in Capulin and the town of La Jara.
This past Friday, Rose Viapando and Solomon Lopez, Las Cancioneros Del Valle, local singing favorites, brought magical musical sounds to the market. This Friday, Joshua Wohlrabe of Adams State University Music Department will bring his collection of drums from all parts of the globe for an exciting drum circle. The market will throb with the rhythms from around the world as everyone … yes, children too … is invited to pick up a drum and the join in the circle of fun. If you haven’t sat in on a drum circle then Friday will be your chance to experience the fun and Joshua makes it so easy by showing you how.
The market runs from 3:00 through 7:00 PM at the La Jara Town Hall. So, comejoin us for this week’s market, Friday August 10th from 3-7pm. The La Jara Farmers Market is conveniently located right in downtown La Jara on Broadway Avenue by the Town Hall. And, you’ll find this best kept Valley secret opens every Friday afternoon and evening through the 7th of September.
