Every New Mexican loves the smell of roasting chiles. We wait for it. It stops us in our tracks when we catch the whiff. Want to bathe yourself in it like we do? Big Jim Farms can make that wish come true. Saturdays and Sundays through September and October, including Sept. 8 and 9 from 9am to 5pm, savor the experience of picking your own green or red chiles with onsite roasting! These chiles are grown chemical-free by a third generation farmer and range from mild to extra hot. Prices are by basket size, which includes mini, small, medium, large and bushel, with the option to have your spoils roasted right in front of you for $5 more. There are also pre-picked fruits and vegetables for sale. Meet the farmer, see where the food is grown and get ready to load up on the New Mexican staple, while relishing in that intoxicating chile pheromone. (Mayo Lua de Frenchie)
