Farmer’s Market permits and yarn Machines

The young woman, in yellow shirt with her hair in braids, you see in the picture below was operating some type of foot pedal yarn machine. I believe I heard one of the locals calling the contraption a swift.  We saw her around 8:30 am on the front lawn of the Chaves County courthouse along with other vendors. The little fella waiting patiently next to her at base of lamp post was her kiddo I think.

Roswell NM was having a farmers market on their courthouse lawn as we were passing through on highway 285 coming up from Fort Stockton TX where 285 starts or ends depending how a feller looks at things.

A vendor permit is required as you can see in the picture below with magnet supports attached to food establishment permits for Maria Vasquez(Maria’s Sweet Breads) and Hector F. Vasquez(Hector’s Burritos-quite tasty I will emphatically add!) These were temporary, 8 day, home based processing permits signed by Ronald Taylor, NMED Food Specialist. I only wish Fort Stockton had folks like Mr Taylor and good people willing to go to the hassle of getting a permit to sell and serve what they do best!

I would be remiss if I did not mention the availability of high quality, fresh and large Red watermelons in a stand directly across the street from Hispano Chamber of Commerce. It appeared to be either a husband/wife or brother/sister team running the fruit stand that had many customers on this sunny cool late August morning. The melons set you back only 7 dollars and there were $5.00 packages of red hot chili peppers getting snapped up pretty fast too.

  1. The timing of this article coincides with La Semilla Food Center mobile farmers market out of Las Cruces. Thanks to Elena Acosta and Alex Bernal for giving the region farm fresh eggplant,squash, melons and chile out of an inexpensively refurbished bus.
