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.
