The Las Cruces Farmers and Crafts Market is ranked number one in New Mexico and eighth in the nation! Local farmers and craft artists congregate on the downtown mall, every Wednesday and Saturday morning.
Take your time, wander up and down the yellow brick road and experience all the open-air market has to offer. There are a wide variety of artists, just waiting to show you their creations, some are crafting their items right in front of you.
Unusual and one-of-a-kind hand made jewelry, exquisite wooden items, pottery, paintings, photographs, soaps and lots of interesting treasures await you.
Stands of fresh fruit and veggies from local farmers abound. Homemade breads, muffins, candy and cookies, New Mexico chile and pecan products are just a sampling of the edible goodies available.
Bring your buddy, your best friend, I’m talking about your dog. Definitely pet friendly, many different breeds can be seen walking their owners up and down the mall, visiting with their doggy friends. If you need a furry friend, you can adopt one right on the mall, the Animal Service Center of the Mesilla Valley has a stand set up at the South end of the market.
Does strolling make you hungry? Have a hot dog or some Kettle Corn, while being serenaded by local musicians and singers.
The market is located between Church Street and Water Street in downtown Las Cruces.
Come join the fun!
