For weeks from late spring into fall, each Saturday morning becomes a true community event. Taos, in all its multicultu­ralism and diversity, is represente­d at the open-air market when Native American, Spanish, Anglo, Asian and many other people who hail as Taoseños, meet to enjoy what is no less than a small weekly festival. Locally grown produce, plants, cut flowers, baked goods and hot food are the real treasure of the market. You will also be entertaine­d by local musicians. It is a place to meet friends to share recipes and chat, and mainly just to celebrate living in Taos. 107B BENT STREET, TAOS • (575) 770-5140 1103 PASEO DEL PUEBLO SUR, TAOS • (575) 751-4824 • FINDONFACE­BOOK THEUNDERGR­OUNDTAOS.COM Best Place to Gear Up for the Slopes Best Women’s Clothing Boutique Cottam's Ski & Outdoor Shop Francesca's Clothing Boutique TAOS: 207 PASEO DEL PUEBLO SUR • (575) 758-2822 TAOS SKI VALLEY: 101 SUTTON PLACE • (575) 776-8719 ANGEL FIRE: 40 NORTH ANGEL FIRE ROAD • (575) 377-3700 SANTA FE: 740 HYDE PARK ROAD • (505) 982-0495 Arroyo Hondo Farmers Market 492 STATE ROAD 150, ARROYO SECO • (575) 776-8776 • FINDONFACE­BOOK MIDTOWN MARKET & SPIRITS PARKING LOT, 680 STATE ROAD 52, ARROYO HONDO; EVERY WEDNESDAY THROUGHOUT THE SUMMER FROM 3-6 P.M. • (575) 776-1680 Best Place to Buy Fresh Flowers Taos Farmers Market TAOS PLAZA (EVERY SATURDAY THROUGH OCTOBER 26, 8 A.M.-12:30 P.M.)
