Welcome to the Growers and Makers Exchange!
As residents of northern New Mexico we make, grow, and produce for ourselves and our families. When we have an abundance of more garden veggies or choke cherries than we know what to do with we need a solution! Our Growers and Makers Exchange is a local marketplace. This weekly gathering supports small scale producers and makers economically, and also supports community life. We welcome home bakers, jelly makers, gardeners, crafters, artists, woodworkers, our youth, and entrepreneurs to provide locally for one another. At the weekly exchange we localize our economic efforts.
The choice to trade, exchange, and donate is left up to individuals. A best practice for selling food items is to sell by suggested donation.
Things you can hope to find at the Growers and Makers Exchange:
- Chokecherry and seasonal jams
- Bread and muffins
- Coffee and coffee cake
- Pickles and sauerkraut
- Cookies and teas
- Summer vegetables, cut flowers, and fall harvest
- Art and handmade wares
- Live Music
- Local ice cream
- Each other
