Carlsbad Downtown Farmers’ Market active on Thursday’s

Carlsbad’s Downtown Farmers’ Market is back after COVID-19 limited activities in 2020 due to health restrictions enacted by the State of New Mexico.

Carlsbad Downtown Farmers’ Market Manager Kelly Childs said people appeared ready to get out this year after COVID-19 canceled or modified most events last year.

Carlsbad MainStreet Executive Director Ashly Key said the Farmer’s Market held every Thursday at the Eddy County Courthouse lawn showed the community wanted to get out and support downtown merchants and activities.

“COVID (19) really made people see their talent and they started working on those talents and now new small businesses are being created and growing through these farmers’ markets. This just opens the door for people to grow their businesses,” she said.
