You can’t ask for better weather when you’re at the Market. This past Sunday, the perfect weather paired great with music by Katie Gill, and freshly picked produce and baked goods. It’s ‘greens’ season in central New Mexico, and you can currently find just about every type of leafy green you can think of…kale, chard, lettuce, spinach, arugula, turnip and mustard greens, to name a few. These items are great in a salad or cooked up with some stir fry. Next Sunday, Kristina Jacobsen will be serenading the Market with her music while you shop for all your favorite seasonal treats. Vendors will be at the Market, 9AM-12PM. Get there before 10AM to grab your choice of produce!
This season is turning out to be a great one. Two of our favorite people were at the Market for Mother’s Day, Shelley Morningsong & Fabian Fontenelle. They shared some amazing original music and some traditional dance that always leave the Market impressed. Customers left with broccoli, greens, beef, eggs, honey and fresh baked goods. Next Sunday, May 21st, we will have live music from Katie Gill, and more of the same great food. Also, if you haven’t planted your garden yet, now is the time. There will be plenty of transplants to choose from, including tomatoes, artichokes, flowers, and basil. See you next Sunday, 9AM-12PM.
This weekend, we left the windy weather behind and had a great Market with plenty of sun! A big THANK YOU goes to Blue Rose Revival for providing A+ music at the Growers’ Market, we hope to see Tucker and Emily again next season! As this season gets going, we are seeing a lot of spring crops – various greens, radishes, onions, chard…as well as some items you can find year ’round, including eggs, bread, baked goods, preserves, honey and dried chile. Next Sunday, the fun continues. On Mother’s Day, we will have live music and performances by Shelley Morningsong & Fabian Fontenelle. Don’t miss this one! Food, entertainment and breakfast will be waiting for you on May 14th, 9AM-12PM. See you soon!
Thanks to everyone that came out this past Sunday to help the vendors get the 2017 season started! We had live music by the one and only String Dinner. Despite the windy weather, we kicked off the season the right way, and everyone left with full bags of locally grown food. Next week, we will have live music from Blue Rose Revival. Make the Sunday morning market a weekly habit! See you next next Sunday, May 7th – 9AM-12PM.
Thanks for coming out to the final winter market of the season – we had around 900 customers and 18 vendors… if this is any indication of the upcoming season, then we are excited to get things started! This Market, vendors had eggs, greens, honey, onions, spring garlic and mushrooms, and much more. The regular Market season will begin the last Sunday of this month, April 30th. We will resume regular market hours – 9AM-12PM and have music by String Dinner. April will be gone before you know it… see you soon at the Market!
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!
