The Flavors of Fall at Santa Fe Farm-to-Table Restaurants

Order My 2017 Santa Fe Travel Guide

 

Autumn in New Mexico brings a bounty of fresh, seasonal foods grown by local farmers that are representative of the region, from the Land of Enchantment’s famous green and red chile to the Native American’s “Three Sisters”—beans, corn and squash that, when grown together, nourish and support each other.

You can savor the flavors of fall at acclaimed farm-to-table restaurants across Santa Fe County, where the focus is on fresh, local ingredients that are delicious and full of wholesome goodness, too.  Some chefs cook with the foods grown at their on-site restaurant farms. Others shop the Santa Fe Farmers Market—one of America’s top farmers markets with more than 150 farmers and producers in northern New Mexico —as well as the Eldorado Farmers Market, Cerrillos Farmers Market and the Pueblo of Pojoaque Farmers Market and crafts markets.  Chefs then blend the freshest of ingredients with imagination and innovation to create mouth-watering fare that keeps diners coming back for more.
