Garlic Lovers Jubilee

Here's a heads up (no pun intended) to all garlic lovers, whether you are a guest at The Madeleine Bed & Breakfast Inn or a Santa Fean.  Many of us head to the weekly Santa Fe Farmer's Market for garlic, greens and more, but this weekend's Garlic Harvest Festival is an opportunity to get even closer to the source.

The event will take place on Saturday, July 2 at the Sostenga Farm from 6am-2:30pm.  Those brave souls who arrive at 6am (and beat the heat!) can enjoy a Sunrise Breakfast.  The day also offers a variety of food booths, a Garlic Harvest Competition, music and entertainment. 

Garlic has been utilized in foods and for medicinal purposes for thousands of years.  Come to the Garlic Harvest Festival and learn more about this versatile and delicious plant.
