This year’s record drought left many of the acequias empty of water and reduced the Gallinas and Pecos rivers to a series of shallow puddles in some areas downstream. Still, many area farmers are bucking the odds and putting fresh produce on local tables.
The Tri-County Farmers Market is in full swing. Salad greens, beets, cucumbers, tomatoes, turnips and much more are being sold, fresh from area farms.
