Anybody who has had it will tell you that New Mexican cuisine is a palate pleaser unlike any other. Not to be confused with the fare from our neighbors over the southern border, New Mexico’s blend of chiles, vegetables and spices introduced by different cultures has a flavor all its own. Over the years, HomeGrown has become a great opportunity to sample and shop for New Mexico’s award-winning food products. The New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum presents its 8th annual HomeGrown Food Show and Gift Market, November 18 – 19, 2023.
Co-sponsored by the New Mexico Department of Agriculture, HomeGrown is a great way to support local farmers and businesses. And because it takes place at the beginning of the holiday season, New Mexico food products and crafts make perfect gifts and holiday snacks to share with family and friends. At least, that’s the intention behind this culinary market, because let’s face it, there is no better way to celebrate the holidays than with locally-grown products.
Over 35 vendors make up the bulk of the show, representing a variety of food companies from around the state, all of which are New Mexico —Taste the Tradition® and Grown with Tradition® members. Each booth offers locally produced products, such as award-winning salsas and wine, for attendees to sample and purchase. The show also features crafts made from agriculture resources and hand-made art, and the NMDA’s food demonstration trailer with chefs demonstrating various recipes using products that are available for sale from vendors.
