Saturday mornings in Socorro’s historic Kittrell Park are a swarm of activity. The growers’ market is teeming with fresh, late summer produce, goats’ milk soaps, baked goods and the biggest okra you’ve ever seen, and it’s all encircled by a big, buzzing mass of retail vendors–some junky, some treasure-filled. For a more relaxed but still produce-packed market, hit the park up on Tuesdays from 5 to 7 p.m. Read about they they do things down in Socorro in Ari LeVaux’s “Locovore Market Report: Socorro.”
Growers’ markets have an oasis-like feeling to them. They’re sanctuaries of foliage, magnets for cool people and hives of activity. That effect is heightened in Socorro, where the surrounding landscape is sculpted by hot wind and sunshine. In the town’s charming plaza, cool green grass is shaded by immense cottonwood trees. On Saturdays, when the market is in full swing, it feels like a festival—or a barter fair.
