On their La Cienega farm Mary and Tom Dixon, along with daughter Rachel, grow some of the most coveted veggies at the market, including greens, peppers, radishes and tomatoes.
Proprietor Jim Whitaker sells a smoky sweet sausage mixed with a secret blend of spices he concocted at the request of the famed Café Pasqual’s near the Plaza. To make eating and shopping easy, it’s served on a stick.
Rey Romero may not have much to say, but his just-right roasted green chile stands out among standouts, which speaks for itself.
At his farm in Abiquiu, the famed one-time home of artist Georgia O’Keefe, Jeff Nitz goes above and beyond stone-grinding polenta from grains that he has grown.
