A thirty minute drive from Pecos, is the tiny town of Coyanosa. There’s not much there, but if you’ve ever heard of the Famous Pecos Cantaloupes, that’s where they come from! There used to be just a road-side stand, but now they have a big brick Farmers Market. Several varieties of watermelons, melons, onions, peppers, tomatoes, squash, and even honey are available. You better hurry if you want Okra, because it goes fast! We bought a watermelon, an Israel Melon, a bag of Red Onions, a bag of tomatoes, a bag of Long Green Chili, a bag of jalapenos, and two cantaloupes. We’ve been eating fresh salsa all day 🙂

Right now is the best time to visit farmers’ markets: They are alive with their biggest bounty of fresh produce—gloriously juicy, crisp, and fragrant. These green markets do more than supply us with colorful fruits and vegetables; they reflect and shape our culture, reinforcing our community spirit and connecting us on a grassroots level to the people who grow the food we feed our families. And that, by extension, inspires us to be better cooks. Here are our picks for the top markets in America, as named by renowned chefs, cookbook authors, and food notables from every state.
