The season continues with fresh, juicy watermelons! A perfect snack on these hot summer days. Thank you to Felix Y Los Gatos and Brothers One and the Soul of Man for providing some great music for everyone at the Market! We hope you had a great time and found all the fresh produce you were looking for. It might be hard to transition from the consistency of the grocery store to the seasonality of the Market – but we promise it will be worth it!! On Wednesday, a core group of vendors will be at the Market with more of the same great food. Peaches, carrots, zucchini, onions, and much more can be found at our mid-week Markets. Smaller, but never lacking in quality produce! Come see what slow-food is all about – Wednesday 3PM-6PM.
The mid-week Market is underway this year, and for the opening market we had 9 vendors with a variety of produce. Carrots, tomatoes, peaches, flowers, onions, cucumbers, squash, and honey were among the items you can find. This Market is perfect if you can’t make it to the Sunday Market or don’t want to bother with crowds. What the Market lacks in quantity makes up for in quality. We hope to see you there soon! The next Corrales Market will take place Sunday, July 24th, 9AM-12PM. Grab a hat and your bags, it’s going to be a hot one, so get there early to beat the crowds and the heat!
Thousands of people came out to the best agricultural market in the state on Sunday! Sunday was Evelyn Losack day, and the Market did not disappoint. Bosque Bassoonists and and a trio of kids playing violins provided music for the Market. Peaches made their debut, as well as a few peppers here and there. The tomato crops keeping coming in, and Ron Jobe and A J Farms had lots of them. Also, Montoya Farms and Johnston Farms had the first peaches of the season. Valley Garlic is back at the Market with this years oil pressing, so make sure to stock up! Last but not least, Wagner Farms brought the first crop of corn to the Market. If you are missing the Markets due to timing, our Wednesday Market will begin THIS Wednesday, July 20th 3PM-6PM. Now you have no excuse for eating locally grown food and supporting New Mexico agriculture!
It was a hot one out there this morning, but we were glad to see everyone at the Market. We had great music by Friends Forever, as well as a nice variety of produce and added-farm value products from vendors at the Market. The zinnias are beginning to bloom, and they are one of the best cut flowers you can buy. If you bought a bunch, don’t forget to change the water, they’ll last a week, if not longer. Vendors also had wheatgrass, cauliflower, peas, cucumber and many different varieties of squash. Next weekend we will have live music from a really cool group – the Bosque Bassoonists! Come out and enjoy the bassoon music! 9AM-12PM.
We hope you had a great 4th of July weekend, and that a visit to the Market was part of the fun. All of the vendors had a busy day at the Market this weekend with the season going strong. We saw different varieties of tomatoes and cherries, as well as potatoes, strawberries, eggplant, cucumbers, gladiolas and artichoke flowers. In addition to all the fruits and vegetables at the Market, there are also a ton of added-value items that you can stock up on, including honey, bread, jams and preserves, and baked goods. Thank you to Haiku Cowboys for providing live music at the Market. Monday July 4th will be the Corrales 4th of July parade, and the Corrales Growers’ Market will have a float! We will see you there at 10AM!
Thanks to all that came to the Market this week. If you were there, you enjoyed amazing live music by Los Radiators! We can’t wait to have them back at the Market. This Sunday, we had tons of food, including cherries, carrots, tomatoes, gorgeous gladiolas, potatoes, radishes, blackberries, and MUCH more at the Market. We also had a nice visit from “Hamilton the Pig” this morning, meeting and greeting everyone he passed. Next week, we will have live music by Haiku Cowboys; it’s a perfect time to bring everyone visiting for the 4th of July down to the Market. Also…the Corrales 4th of July parade will be happening next Monday! The parade will extend south to the Post Office this year, which means you can park at the Rec. Center and see the entire parade anywhere along the route, beginning south of Corrales Elementary School. Hope to see you at the Market Sunday AND at the Parade on Monday!
