A market with history

-A A +A
By The Staff

I do hope many of you read a recent article in our Essence about the fun of shopping for and eating foods grown locally. Our local Farmers Market has its own long and interesting history. In fact, our own Los Alamos Farmers Market is the oldest continuous farmers market in our state.

A very determined member of our community, Jesse Rudnick, along with members of the League of Women Voters decided it was time to be able to purchase locally grown fresh produce. Los Alamos County was involved from the very beginning in helping to find a good location for the market. Some of you old timers may remember a time when the market was set up right on Central Avenue and we all shopped in the middle of the street.  Sometimes it is fun to have lived here forever so we can remember those things.  

Our market started in about 1970, a few years later Santa Fe started its market and it quickly grew even larger.  Last year, the Los Alamos Farmer’s Market became part of LACDC’s MainStreet Program and our organization will work hard to help ensure its long term viability in our downtown. The market vendors have elected an advisory committee from their ranks to have input on rules and resolving issues. A local volunteer, Gale Barlow is also a member of the advisory committee to provide input on behalf of the community.
