The Downwtown Farmers Market #Salad Mix-Off! Talent, love of food and creativity at it’s finest! The #saladmixer event at the #downtowngrowersmarket was a ton of fun! There were other #chefs from around the #NewMexico area, and we had our #NobHill deli chef, Rhian Batson, representing @lamontanitacoop at this amazing event! We are thrilled to help support our local #farmingcommunity and we are proud to say that the money raised from this event went to support the Downtown Farmers Market. Rhian had lots of great things to say.... "I'd do it every month in a heartbeat it was that much fun & a great way for me to reconnect to my #craft . The seasonality of product and variety of unique #produce local to the #ABQ area alone was great to see & somewhat staggering - who knew ABQ has fresh marionberry producers[?] and miniature sugary sweet salad turnips etc.? The list goes on and on. In addition, I got to talk with countless Downtown Growers Market customers, foodies, folks interested in the coop and the chef craft" He made a delicious salad with local ingredients from the multiple farmers at the market. Rhian was able to bring in one 'special ingredient' and he choose #HempHearts. Along with that, the salad had: strawberries, local bean cherries, local currants, sweet salad turnips, marionberries, arugula, local bitter greens, local daikon radish, and dressed with a citrus vinaigrette with caramelized shallots and garlic. Can you say yummmmmmm...... 🥗 🥙 🥗 🥙 #ILoveSalad #EatTheRainbow #FeedMeTheGreens #abqdowntowngrowersmarket

We are looking for vendors for our 2018 EarthFest! La Montañita Co-op’s EarthFest is one of the largest Earth Day events in New Mexico. Every year we bring together local farmers, artists and non-profit organizations to celebrate the Earth, our community, and the interconnectedness between them. Thousands of New Mexicans attend every year — some enjoy the music, performances and energy all day long, and others come just to see the latest in local crafts and non-profit work. EarthFest is an excellent opportunity to get your artwork or crafts seen by thousands of people, and for the first year ever, you don’t need to be a La Montañita Co-op member-owner to have a table!
