Roasting chiles at the Alpine Farmers Market, in the yard next to the old Hotel Richey on Murphy Street in Alpine, Texas. Market opens at 9 a.m. Saturdays. Chile-roasting was a fund-raiser for the town’s new community garden project.

Marfa’s farmers market starts at the civilized hour of 10 a.m. Saturdays under this lovely permanent structure built by the city. But but warned — it’s pretty much over (as in sold out) by 11 a.m.
