Local green chile is available at nearby farmers markets from late July through mid-September, and on roadside stands until sometime in October. Most of the roadside stand chile comes from the southern part of the state — Hatch if you’re lucky — so be sure to ask the vendor where it was grown. Red chile starts appearing by late August or early September, both at the farmers markets and roadside stands.
