Las Cruces Farmers and Crafts MarketWouldn't it be great to have the number one large farmers markets right around the corner and easily accessible? Fortunately, we have one! The Las Cruces Farmers and Crafts Market has won multiple awards over the past few years and has become a staple of Las Cruces living. The market started in 1971 when a group of the local farmers decided to sell directly to the community. As Las Cruces grew so did the Farmers market and what started as a small group has grown to over 50 venders on Wednesday and burgeoning to over 200 venders on the Saturday Market.

Las Cruces Farmers and Crafts MarketA benefit the Farmers and Crafts Market has is that it is located in New Mexico which has a long growing season. This means that the market can stay open year-round! A little more locally, the market is located in downtown Las Cruces. This location gets a huge amount of foot-traffic during the week, which is why the market is also open on Wednesdays, and is also extremely accessible to a large number of people at once.

The Las Cruces Farmers and Crafts Market has become not just a market the benefits the local economy but also a huge weekly social interaction and entertainment event.The market provides food, friends, family, music, and entertainment for all ages.

Still deciding on your resolutions and goals? Need a few words of wisdom?
Here are 10 Resolutions to guide you through 2015

Clock1. Begin.
The greatest miracle of your success will not be that you finished, it will be that you had the courage to begin.

2. Work hard on the essential.
Don't be busy, be productive. Don't track your time, track your results. Don't make your goal easy; it's supposed to be hard. The hard part is what makes it worthwhile.

3. Be self-confident.
You have everything you need within you to become the best possible version of YOU. Believe that you CAN. Believe that you're young enough, old enough, smart enough and strong enough to achieve your goals.

4. Focus on solutions.
There are always problems, there are always challenges. Transform those problems and challenges into great opportunities. Focus on solutions and work your way eagerly toward a brighter future.

Smiley Face5. Accept the things you can't change.
What you resist persists. Choose to accept what is, be positive and proactive, let go of the need to control every tiny detail, and embrace peace in the process.

6. Leave the past where it belongs.
Don't use the past as an excuse to miss out on today. Acceptance truly is the bitter pill you have to bravely swallow to move beyond yesterday's problems. History only dictates the future if you allow it.

7. Set a good example.
It's not about what you say; it's about how you live your life every day. Choose to believe that you can and will change lives with what you do each day, and you will. Let your actions speak for themselves.

8. Be sincerely kind to everyone around you.
Through kindness you have the ability to make a profound difference in every life you touch, including your own. You will feel yourself healing and growing stronger.

Holding Hands9. Show your love.
Relationships last a lifetime only when two people make a choice to keep it, fight for it, and work for it. Acts of love just need to be true, and true love is always shown in deeds, not words.

10. Help change one life.
YOU can make a difference in the world. What you do truly matters. In fact, the vast majority of positive changes come about in someone's life simply because one other person cares for them, believes in them, and motivates them. So be that one person, even if it's to only one other person.

Living in Las Cruces sure has it's perks one of them is location location location!   We are just a short drive away from some really neat and unique day trip destinations.  For the next few Lifestyle blogs I want to explore some of these great things to do.

Take a drive to Roswell and enter the world of the unexplained at the UFO Museum

International UFO Museum, Roswell, NM

Open since 1992 the mesum has attracted everyone from the curious to the silly to serious researchers. The Museum provides information to the general public on all aspects of the UFO phenomena. People from around the world travel to Roswell to see what the Museum has to offer and to simply "be in Roswell where it happened."

Museum exhibits include information on the Roswell Incident, crop circles, UFO sightings, Area 51, ancient astronauts and abductions. The exhibits are designed not to convince anyone to believe one way or another about their subjects. Visitors are encouraged to ask questions. Many visitors come numerous times and some spend days or even weeks doing research in the library.While in Roswell, most visitors at least buy gas and a soda, or they may spend a week learning about the phenomena and Roswell. Since its opening, the Museum has outgrown two downtown locations, finally landing in the old Plains Theater on North Main Street in Roswell. The number of visitors continues to be the envy of many other tourist attractions in the state.  Not only is there the museum that you can visit year round but every year in the first week of July the annual UFO Festival is held.  It is a Festival for the curious and has been a very successful event.  Activities range from carnivals to trade shows, from alien costume contests to UFO lectures, from Fourth of July fireworks to a parade downtown, from Hollywood celebrities to local children in costume and on roller blades. Known UFO researchers attend to present the most up-to-date information on the subject.

If you are looking for a truely unique experience, if you are a believer or not, this museum is sure to please.  For more information on the Museum you can find them at

I will be highlighting more local and state attractions on our lifestyle blog every week.  Be sure to visit our blog often for more information on things to do around town, Real Estate news and tips, and much much more!
