Bill and I went to Santa Fe, N.M., from a Tuesday through a Saturday in October/November. Guess what days the Santa Fe Farmers’ Market runs? Tuesdays and Saturdays. We rushed over to the market on Saturday before our we had to fly home and it was completely worth it. Our pre-flight meal wound up being these awesome vegan breakfast burritos from a vendor at the market.

I visited: The Santa Fe Farmers’ Market Cafe. The Farmers’ Market itself opened in the 1960s and has grown into the hulking indoor/outdoor, year-young market it is today. The Farmers’ Market Cafe is located inside the market building and offers breakfast burritos, tamales, pastries and beverages. All benefits from the cafe go directly to the market itself.

The little cafe (and accompanying musician).

I tried: The vegan breakfast burrito, which included potatoes, onion, black beans, mushrooms and chiles.

Why it stood out: I’m not a vegan, and the other burritos did sound delicious (there were sausage, bacon, egg and carne options), but I was standing among tons of local produce. I wanted a burrito filled with all those things! It was great, and perfect with a cup of (organic) coffee before a long travel home.

It cost: $6 (Yahtzee!)

I couldn’t choose just a couple of pictures for this post! The market is both indoors and outdoors and has lots of cool, local items that I never get to see at my own market.
