The 2018 MainStreet Roswell Farmers’ and Growers’ Market doesn’t start until July 14, but the farmers, backyard gardeners and home-based artisans and crafters are now busy planting, pruning and primping to make our market successful.

The Saturday morning markets are a great way to gather with friends and neighbors and shop for tantalizingly fresh, New Mexico-raised produce. Chat with the vendors about their wares, take in the colors and aromas of just-picked vegetables and fresh baked goods, watch local cooks prepare fresh burritos, fajitas and more using seasonal produce. Enjoy visiting with friends on the grounds of our historical Chaves County Courthouse.

If you are a returning vendor from past years, or if this is your first year to be a vendor, you are invited to the Vendor Potluck Kick Off and Information Dinner on Saturday, May 26 at 5 p.m.

Please RSVP Market Manager Peggy Seskey at 575-622-5670 for directions and questions. Come meet your fellow vendors participating in the Saturday morning markets. Agreements are also available at mainstreetroswell.org/events.
