3 November Market Dates! 9am-1pm

We are happy to announce that our vendors have enough produce to continue holding markets for 3 weeks in November!  We will be only in the center of the Plaza meaning we will not be closing any roads so there will be a lot of parking.  We will open at 9am and close at 1pm for these 3 November markets only.  Get all your local food for your Thanksgiving meal this year in Taos!

10/27/18: Halloween Costume Contest!

Bring the whole family for our Halloween Costume Contest on October 27!  We will have candy and prizes for all the kids who are dressed up but also a costume contest with 3 categories for Best Costume: Kid, Adult, & Group – all 3 categories will win anything they choose from the TFM Info Booth.  If you’ve been eyeing one of those Ghana Baskets or sweet TFM hats all summer, its time to shine in your costume and hopefully win!  Get your most local produce while you still can, theres still a LOT in season!

May 12: 1st Market Day of the 2018 Season!

Welcome back to the Plaza!

After meeting up with the vendor for our Spring Vendor Meeting, the excitement in the room was simply contagious!  We are all looking forward to coming back to the Plaza this year with new and exciting products, new vendors, and all the local food you’ve always depended on the market to provide.

Myself & Cameron are still managing the market so you can except the same level of service when it comes to your questions.  We want the best experience for the customer and if you have any questions, comments, or concerns we will handle your feedback with respect.

We are excited to welcome the Pot Creek String Band to play weekly as our morning entertainment.  They have joined us many mornings last season to play for tips but this year we are proud to call them the our morning musicians!  You can still expect local, regional acts from 10am-12pm a different musician/group every week throughout the season.  Opening Day we will have local-favorite Stacey Sanders as our 10am-noon entertainment, check out his music at http://www.staceysandersmusic.com/

I’ve ordered all kinds of new TFM merchandise, hats, bags, and even insulated bags I’m happy to offer market customers – come see me at the info booth!  Also we will have our EBT & DUFB food assistance programs up and running all season, remember we can only disperse tokens between 8:00am-12:00pm, even though market goes until 12:30pm so get your tokens first then shop around, eat, & talk with friends.

Thanks for reading!  See you at the Plaza starting May 12!
