Or maybe I'll break camp and go into town to the Las Cruces Farmers' and Crafts Market at the Downtown Mall.

One of the biggest year round attractions in the area is the Las Cruces Farmers' and Crafts Market. Located on the Las Cruces Downtown Mall on Wednesday and Saturday mornings, the market offers arts, crafts and other original merchandise from Doña Ana County, and food and produce from a three county area. Established in 1971 by produce growers, the market now affords locals and visitors the opportunity to shop for unique goods and services as well as fresh from the farm herbs, produce and eggs in an outdoor setting. Fresh bread and baked goods for sale are an added treat for all, and roving entertainers round out this community happening. Residents and visitors alike appreciate the local flavor and the talents of the market vendors.

I Believe in Human Dignity

I believe in human dignity as the source of national purpose, in human liberty as the source of national action, in the human heart as the source of national compassion, and in the human mind as the source of our invention and our ideas. It is, I believe, the faith in our fellow citizens as individuals and as people that lies at the heart of the liberal faith. For liberalism is not so much a party creed or set of fixed platform promises as it is an attitude of mind and heart, a faith in man's ability through the experiences of his reason and judgment to increase for himself and his fellow men the amount of justice and freedom and brotherhood which all human life deserves.

John F Kennedy, 1960
