Farm and Ranch Museum hosts HomeGrown food show, gift market Nov. 19-20


New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum (NMFRHM) will host the eighth annual “A New Mexico Food Show and Gift Market” Saturday-Sunday, Nov. 19-20 at the museum, 4100 Dripping Springs Road in Las Cruces.

 The event is 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Saturday and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Sunday.

Admission is $10 per vehicle. The first 100 vehicles at the event each day will receive a free burlap shopping bag. Cash is encouraged for admission.

The New Mexico Department of Agriculture partners with the museum each year to co-host the show and will offer food demonstrations, NMFRHM said in a news release.

Attendees can expect about 50 vendors, the majority representing food and beverage companies from around the state and all of which are New Mexico “Taste the Tradition®” and “Grown with Tradition®” members, the museum said. Each booth will offer locally produced products such as award-winning salsas, nuts, sauces and wine, for attendees to sample and purchase. The show also features crafts made from agriculture resources and hand-made art.

Attendees also are invited to tour the museum and enjoy the exhibits at no extra cost, the news release said. The 47-acre museum tells the story of 4,000 years of growing food in New Mexico through a variety of exhibits and demonstrations.
