This past Sunday, our local agricultural producers attended the annual membership meeting for the Corrales Growers’ Market to plan for the 2017 Season. We had a very productive meeting; we had the Sandoval county extension office talk about food safety and the services that the Extension Office provides for free, as well as the Corrales Police Department to discuss the support and services that they provide to the Market and the community. The attendees heard from Seed2Need, which runs a very successful program that donates fresh produce to local food pantries. Vendors are excited about the upcoming Market season and ready to get started! We’ll have one more winter market – April 2nd, 11AM-1PM. Then, four weeks later, the 2017 season begins on April 30th, 9AM-12PM with music by String Dinner. See you next Sunday!
Too much good stuff!! This past Sunday morning
was our second-to-the-last Winter Market of the Season, but it really felt like the regular season! We had 11 vendors out and over 1000 customers; not bad for a Winter Market! Our favorites at the Market were dried mushrooms, fresh kale and salad greens, green chile sourdough, and rainbow carrots! The lines were something else…but everything was worth the wait! The next Winter Market will be on April 2nd and run 11AM-1PM.
Then, our regular season will begin the last Sunday in April, and Markets will run every Sunday through November! See you in April for the last Winter Market!
This winter market couldn’t have been better…we had perfect sunny weather and tasty LOCAL food! Greens, wheatgrass, dried onions, fresh bread, and hothouse tomatoes, were a few of the items at the Market this month, and at the next Winter Market in March there will be even more. The winter markets run through April 2nd in Corrales, 11AM-1PM. Don’t miss out on the vendors’ produce, dried and baked goods, preserves and other farm goods!
Happy New Year! As the New Year begins, we’re looking ahead to the Winter Markets of 2017! This weekend was the first Winter Market of the year, and we’ll host vendors for another 3 winter Markets, each held on the first Sunday of every month through April, 11AM-1PM. This morning, there was a wide variety of produce and farm goods, including tomatoes, bok choy, lettuce, apples, and eggs. Thanks to everyone that came out to the Market this morning, we’ll see you next month on Sunday, February 5th, 11AM-1PM!
The season doesn’t seem to want to end! Although everyone was bundled up, vendors had produce you expect to see during our regular season! Apples, radishes, tomatoes, beets and micro-greens were a few items on the grocery list this morning. The Market Shop was also at the Market, and had bags, shirts and baskets for some easy, low-stress holiday shopping. Thanks to everyone that came out, and we hope to see you at our next Winter Market, which will be ringing in the New Year! That’s right – the next Winter Market will be on January 1, 2017 11AM-1PM. How time flies! Hope to see you there.
This time of season is always bittersweet – the vendors at the Corrales Growers’ Market all had a great season, but all good things must come to an end. THANK YOU to everyone that made it to our REAL final market of the regular season. Carrots, flowers, bread, apples and tomatoes were a few of the items at the Market, and it seems like everyone left with a little something to hold them over through until our first winter market of the season in December. That’s right – although the produce and farm goods change during the winter, our Market’s keep on going! The first winter Market of the season will be December 4th, and continue the first Sunday of every month through April 2017. The updated winter Market hours will be 11AM-1PM. We are very thankful for this great season – THANKS to our vendors, customers, musicians and volunteers for making this season such a great success!! See you on Sunday, December 4th, 11AM-1PM!
We are getting too many phone calls from our customers and vendors – so here it is: We will have one more Market this Sunday 9AM-12PM in the regular location! Bring your bags, this is the last time to stock up until the Winter Market in December! See you soon!
