Food produced in New Mexico is showcased at the fifth-annual “HomeGrown: A New Mexico Food Show & Gift Market.”
More than 100 growers, companies and individuals from around the state will sell their products as the gift-giving season approaches. The event is 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 17, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 18. Admission is $5 per vehicle and the first 100 vehicles each day receive a free, burlap shopping bag. The bags can also be purchased at the event for $5.
The museum is again partnering with the New Mexico Department of Agriculture and the state's growers to offer great products to buy or sample.
Food items offered for sampling and purchasing include salsas, wine, pies, cookies, meats, sauces, honey, jerky, candy, cheese, beans, pecans, pistachios, and much more. New Mexico crafts and other home-grown New Mexico products are also part of the event, according to Museum Event Coordinator, Rachel Banegas.
Booths will be in four banquet rooms inside the museum’s Bruce King Building. Admission includes all of the regular museum exhibits and activities.
Many of the food companies and producers are members of NMDA’s Taste the Tradition and Grown with Tradition programs.
