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.

The Value of Time

Time is the most valuable and finite commodity that any living thing has. Think about it, everything – you, me, people, plants, animals, even the Earth itself – has a limited and set amount of time. From the moment we come into existence, we begin an inevitable march to a final end. Even the age of our solar system exists in but a minute of time within the context of the history of the universe. The average human lifespan does not even register on that clock. With that said, in many ways, time is the very definition of life itself.
