Farmers Market Firing Up Horno For Summer

By George Morse

The Espanola Valley Farmers Market welcomed Dexter Trujillo back for another season. Trujillo will display his culinary skills as an horno cook every Monday for the next four weeks at the Farmers Market. The Farmers Market has seen more vendors show up, along with an increase in the variety of vegetables and fruits available for sale as we get deeper into the growing season. Apricots are now in season and peaches are starting to show up as well. There were 18 vendors Monday at the Farmers Market.
