New Mexico Department of Agriculture


Come out to the New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum for the fourth annual “HomeGrown: A New Mexico Food Show & Gift Market” Nov. 18-19. The museum is again partnering with the New Mexico Department of Agriculture and the state’s growers to offer great products to buy or sample. More than 100 growers, companies and individuals from around the state will sell their products as the gift-giving season approaches. The event is 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 18, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 19. Admission is $5 per vehicle and the first 100 vehicles each day receive a free, burlap shopping bag. The bags can also be purchased at the event for $5.

“From salsa to wine, and from jerky to cheese, there will be plenty of New Mexico-made items to purchase at HomeGrown,” said New Mexico Secretary of Agriculture Jeff Witte. “We encourage everyone to get a head start on their holiday shopping at this unique event that exclusively features New Mexico products.

Many of the food companies and producers are members of NMDA’s Taste the Tradition [1] and Grown with Tradition programs. The museum is located at 4100 Dripping Springs Road in Las Cruces.
