The Spread: Distinctly southwestern produce is on
display at this Saturday market in Santa Fe’s rail yard, where 100 vendors
gather to sell locally grown white sweet corn and blue-corn posole; bolita
beans and mesquite cactus honey; buffalo sausages; heaps of organically grown
dried chiles, including ancho, guajillo, and habanero; and more than 100
heirloom tomato varieties, including Oaxacan Jewel, Purple Smudge, and Rose
Quartz.

Most Unusual
Find:
Jujubes—desert fruits whose origins date back thousands of years to the Indian
subcontinent—from SunStar Herbs in Madrid, NM. When dried, jujubes are often
called red dates, and they make an excellent trail food; when steeped into tea,
they purportedly have medicinal properties.
