Today is the first market of the season and to help us kick it off Brandon Perrault will be there to entertain us with music from the 60's and 70's.
Even though it's early in the season we have a lot to offer. Here are some of the selections you'll find on hand today:

*Ruben Castillo from San Lorenzo will have eggs and wild harvested spinach from the Mimbres River.
*Eric Leahy from Gila will have his usual fresh spring greens.
*The Zarragoza family with daughter Elizabeth Soto, one of original vendors at market, will have spring produce, pecans from last winters' harvest, and chili ristra's.
*Jose and Gloria Barraza will have plants, eggs, and spring produce.
*Gaelynn McKenzie, known as the Egg Lady, will be there with eggs, of course.
*David Gurule from his vineyard in the Mimbres Valley and Jan Weisling from her orchard in Pinos Altos will have homemade Jam. And, Jan will probably also have plants and may have rhubarb.
*Trish Hurley and Mark Cantrell will be there with a large selection of native trees, perennials, succulents and cacti. Don't forget that natives are a great choice for companion planting in your vegetable garden bringing in beneficial insects and building the soil.
*For vegetable and flower starts, and herbs Flower Lady Blythe Whiteley and Mike Grunerud from Mimbres Farms will have selections to choose from.
*We have two bakers to choose from this year...Becky Ferranti will return with her delicious selection of pies, cookies, breads, cakes and other pastries. And, Barb from Bad Ass Bakery has returned to Silver and will be at market again where she got her start.
*And, last but not least, Brooke Feldman will have healing herbal salves and other remedies much of which is made from wild plants collected in the Grant County.
See you there.
