Downtown Farmers Market



I was very surprised to see baskets imported from Ghana being sold at the Farmers Market.
I thought that all produce would be locally grown (and I think it is) with the same requirement for crafts.  But since the tag on each one indicates that  it's for a "Rurel Womens Cooperative" I guess that's okay. They're really quite expensive, and I wonder how much they cost in Ghana!

  4. They are very colorful and attractive. I wonder what the locals think about the competition from another country. Have fun in Santa Fe!

  5. I hope the money really goes back to the women in Ghana. I'm always a little skeptical of those things! But the baskets are lovely. :)

  7. Nice shots! I love these baskets. Yes, only the produce is locally grown with the exception of most of the items in the little corner shop area inside the building.

  9. This is a great post to start off your Santa Fe blog for this year. I find that I have a great affinity to those things and can only attribute it to the fact that I'm known as a basket case!

    Funny story about your seatmate from Ocala. Did you get the seatmate's name? There's only about 250,000 folks in the greater Ocala area so I might know him or her. :)

    Enjoy. Love these baskets and all the colors.

  10. I agree with your comment that hopefully the women who make these baskets in Ghana get a fair price.

  11. "RurEL?" Really?

    I've always found these baskets expensive. Fine work and I love them, but my collection is limited to one.
