La Jara Farmers Market this Friday, August 26th

The La Jara Farmers Market is in its fourth year and running smoothly.  We have had some exciting performances from local musicians as well as wonderful products from local vendors.  Last week, Lowdead performed some awesome hard rock songs and Patsy Gomez and Paul Arellano played some very moving spiritual songs.  The musical groups brought in good crowds of people who really enjoyed the afternoon.  The Snowy River Animal Rescue was at the market with pony rides and a petting zoo to raise money for their rescue animals.  Our new location by the La Jara Town Hall is working out very well and we greatly appreciate the support we have received from the town.

Los Cancioneros Del Valle will perform this Friday, the 26th of August.   Sage Larsen and Atomic Pork will close the market on the 2nd of September.

Come join us for this week’s market, Friday August 26th from 3-7pm.  We are located in downtown La Jara by the Town Hall.  Only two markets left, so come enjoy the fun before the close of our season on September 2nd.

La Jara Farmers Market this Friday, August 19th

This last week’s market went very well.  The sun was shining, the wind didn’t blow and it seemed that everyone enjoyed the market.  Jim Hargove’s performance was excellent and we were so happy to have him there.  We had a few more vendors show up this week, such as Kelly West and her delicious Heaven Scent Breads, the Kunugi siblings from Southern Colorado Farms, and Faye DelosSantos with her handmade salves and jewelry.  June McDaniel was back this week with her beautiful artwork and Rachel Skiles brought some of her hand-sewn aprons and other kitchen essentials.  Susan Schreiner was there again with her garden produce and fresh-picked bouquets.  We were happy to have Raymond Gingerich’s family selling tomatoes grown in Romeo.  The MOKI kitchen cooked up some more delicious snacks with an amazing stir-fry. Next week Michele Valdez will be cooking another delicious snack that anyone can try from the MOKI Kitchen for free.

This week, we will be having a surprise appearance from the band Lowdead.  Also expect a great performance from Patsy Gomez and Paul ArellanoLos Cancioneros Del Valle will perform on the 26th of August, and Sage Larsen and Atomic Pork close the market on the 2nd of September.

Congratulations to Adrianna Cordova who sold baked goods at our last two markets to raise money for Fiesta Queen at the St. Joseph’s Parish.  We are happy to announce that she won and was crowned fiesta queen this Saturday!    Anyone interested in doing a fundraiser for a cause is welcome and encouraged to attend our market to raise funds.

Next Market: Friday, August 12th, 3-7pm!

A lot was happening in La Jara this past week with the Farmers Market, the yard sale to help purchase new Christmas lights for the town and the La Jara annual Glory Days celebration! Our market went very well and we were thankful to the Glory Days organizers for helping us acquire a stage and helping with set-up. At this market some of our vendors included Sylvia Montaño serving her delicious hand-dipped ice cream bars, Julie Ruybal with fresh peaches from the Delta area, and White Mountain Farms and Ana Navarro and their organic produce.

Also at this past market, the Antonito Saturday Night Choir performed beautifully with their amazing harmonies and wonderful flute and guitar playing.  Expect another great performance from Jim Hargove this coming market on Friday the 12th of August.  Our other scheduled performers include Patsy Gomez and Paul Arellano on the 19th of August, Los Cancioneros De Valle on the 26th of August, and Sage Larsen and Atomic Pork closing the market on the 2nd of September.

Come out and enjoy all that the La Jara Farmers Market has to offer every Friday from 3-7pm until the 2nd of September!  Don’t forget our new location in downtown La Jara by the La Jara Town Hall.

Our first market got off to a good start with Lori entertaining us with her musical talents, vendors selling fresh fruits and vegetables, and beautiful handcrafts!  Our new location by the La Jara Town Hall seems to be working well for vendors and shoppers alike.

The Antonito Saturday Night Choir will be performing at our next market this coming Friday. Other exciting performances this year include: Jim Hargove on the 12th of August, Eric Shiveley and Patsy Gomez on the 19th of August, Solomon Lopez and Rose Vialpando on the 26th of August, and Sage Larsen and Atomic Pork closing the market on the 2nd of September.

Things were a bit slow and we need support to make the market profitable to our vendors. We would love it if you’d get out there and enjoy!

Our Market runs from 3-7pm every Friday until the 2nd of September.  Don’t forget our new location in downtown La Jara by the La Jara Town Hall.
