This Weekend at the Market - Holiday Cheer

Market Co-Managers Retiring: Cathy Lewandowski and Sue Brawley are retiring as co-managers after the December 10, 2016  market, but will be back as vendors.  The Village is in the process of recruiting a new manager and questions can be sent to: info@losranchosnm.gov.  The market will continue in its current location, and there will be winter markets.  More information about the 25th Anniversary 2017 season will be coming early in 2017.  After 16 years (about 528 markets) of being co-managers, it is time for us to turn over the reigns to someone else.  Cathy and her husband are going to devote more time to farming and will be regular vendors.  Sue and her husband are going to rebuild their house, let most of their fields go fallow to rebuild the soil for the year, and be part-time vendors. We appreciate all the loyal vendors, customers, and community partners and look forward to seeing you at the market in 2017.
