This summer, American Farmland Trust and the Farmers Market Coalition are giving away $15,000 in prizes (and more!) to the nation’s favorite farmers markets- and this year, a Borderland familiar is on the ballot!

The Las Cruces Farmers and Crafts Market has been nominated as one of the best farmers markets in the nation!

Voting ends on September 18, so you still have time to cast your vote! You can vote here. As of the time of this writing, Las Cruces Farmers and Crafts Market has just a little over 1,000 votes- I think we can make it a winner!

I love me a good farmers and crafts market. I don't know if it's because I'm getting older- my nights dancing it up have been replaced by morning trips to farmers markets; but a good farmers market is always a fun trip. And in Las Cruces, their Farmers and Craft market, which takes place every Wednesday and Saturday, with some evening markets included, has lots of reasons to win best farmers market in the Southwest region!

It looks like the market has something for everyone, and if you're looking to get some fresh chili you've got options!

The vendors at the Las Cruces Farmers and Crafts Market are really the stars of the show.

You not only support small businesses, but you also walk away with something sweet!

Or you could walk away with a unique statement piece straight out the southwest!

If you think the Las Cruces Farmers and Crafts Market deserves to be in the winning spot, cast your vote here. And to get updates on the market, check out their Facebook page.
