Launching Local Food Week


This Sunday, the Local Food Festival and Field Day marks the start to Local Food Week here in New Mexico.  The Gutierrez-Hubbel House and Demonstrative Farm will host the Festival from 11-4pm.


The Festival truly has something for everyone:  There will be workshops and lectures about canning, gardening, and curanderismo.  Enjoy free local food samples, shopping for fresh local produce and pantry staples, a tour of the farm, Q&A with a Master Gardener, live music, free basic health screenings, and seed sack races for the kids.

Other ways to celebrate Local Food Week include the NM Brewfest on October 8th and the Harvest Festival Weekend at the ABQ Bio Park starting October 8th (sample the smells, sounds, and tastes of the fall harvest!).

Check the Local Food Week website for more activities and information.
