The New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum presents its 7th annual HomeGrown Food Show and Gift Market, November 20 – 21, 2021. With the holiday season right around the corner, HomeGrown is a great opportunity to sample and shop for New Mexico’s award-winning food products. The New Mexico Department of Agriculture again will be partnering with the Museum to co-host the show.
“The holiday season is the perfect time to showcase New Mexico food, beverages, and crafts,” said New Mexico Agriculture Secretary Jeff Witte. “With the return of HomeGrown this year, everyone has an opportunity to support local businesses. New Mexico food products and crafts make perfect gifts and holiday snacks to share with family and friends. Our producers take pride in what they grow, and there is no better way to celebrate the holidays than with locally-grown products. We look forward to seeing everyone at the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum for HomeGrown.”
Over 35 vendors will be 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 will offer 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. The event will also feature the NMDA’s food demonstration trailer with chefs demonstrating various recipes during products that are available for sale from vendors.
NMDA is also promoting its “Elevate New Mexico Agriculture $5 at a Time” campaign. It aims to inspire every New Mexico household to spend $5, or increase their spending by at least $5 per week, on New Mexico agriculture products year-round.
“The Farm & Ranch staff is excited to welcome everyone back to our signature event, HomeGrown, featuring the New Mexico based products of our talented community,” said Farm & Ranch Museum Executive Director Heather Reed. “In collaboration with our partners at the New Mexico Department of Agriculture, we’re able to showcase the hard work that makes our state unique.”
HomeGrown will take place on Saturday, November 20, from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., and Sunday, November 21, from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Admission is $5 per vehicle and the first 100 vehicles at the event each day will receive a free burlap shopping bag.
