What really distinguishes Joe’s is our passion for a sustainable, local food supply. Roland and Sheila established Joe’s in 2002 as a diner – our intent being to offer an unpretentious comfortable atmosphere for locals who demand high quality local food and uncompromising quality of ingredients offered at a fair price.
We are indeed the biggest restaurant buyer of Farmers Market goods in Santa Fe. The farmers say this and our expenditures prove it. We now spend well over $100,000 a year on locally produced foods. From 2008 to 2012 Joe’s increased these purchases 340% (from $30,000 to over $100,000.)
What our guests demand is clearly in line with our passion for a local healthy sustainable food supply. This is what drives us to continue in this direction.
Here is a partial list of local ingredients we use: grass finished NM lamb, bison and Sweetgrass Co-op ground beef; also chicken livers, chile, eggs, NM grown organic flour, feta, house made mozzarella, fruits, veggies, sprouts, wines, beers and breads and homemade desserts.
