About Santa Fe Farmers Market Institute
The Santa Fe Farmers’ Market Institute is a nonprofit educational organization founded in 2002 to support the Santa Fe Farmers’ Market. The Market originated in a parking lot with six vendors in 1968 and has since grown to be one of the oldest, largest and most successful growers markets in the country. Diminishing open space in the downtown area for vending presented the Market with the possibility of being forced to the outskirts of town. The Institute’s purpose is to fund, build and manage a permanent farmers’ market building in the Railyard; implement programs to promote agriculture and other land based traditions in northern New Mexico; and educate consumers about the cultural, nutritional and economic benefits of buying locally produced food and agricultural products.
