The mid-week Market continues to grow and really prove its worth, both for our growers’ and for the customers that make it out. This week, we had nearly 10 vendors and 300 customers, as well as the WIC representatives and the Sandoval County Master Gardeners. The Wednesday Markets are something entirely different from our larger Sunday Market. It’s the perfect place to stop if you have one thing on your mind: FOOD. There will not be music or burritos there, but you can count on vendors having the produce and goods you have come to expect from the Market. So, whether you just need to stop for a couple of tomatoes and an onion for dinner, or you do all your grocery shopping on Wednesday, visit our growers on Wednesdays. They will be there 3PM-6PM, rain or shine. As always, WIC is accepted by all the vendors selling fresh produce.

Wednesday Market with New Mexico WIC and Watermelon

We had a pleasant mid-week Market today, complete with peaches, tomatoes, carrots, flowers, and green chile. A big thank the New Mexico WIC Program for making it to the Market today to sign people up for WIC and hand them their checks right at the Market. This makes purchasing healthy food options particularly easy. If you are ever unsure of what to do with an unfamiliar vegetable… have no fear! Ask the farmers about their favorite ways to prepare their produce, they are happy to talk about food! This Sunday, we will have music by The Kipsies, as well as sweet corn, peaches, eggs, grass-fed beef and much more! Bring your bags and stock up on locally grown food!2016.08.10 - Market Album-62016.08.10 - Market Album-12 2016.08.10 - Market Album-112016.08.10 - Market Album-5

Le Chat Lunatique, Sweet Corn, and Chile Roasting

2016.08.07 - Market Album-23This is really what it’s all about! We had close to three thousand people come through the Market this morning, all of which left with a variety of locally grown and produced food. Many thanks to Apple Tree Cafe who brought more food mid-market to feed everyone (sorry if you had to wait a bit longer than usual to get breakfast!). Le Chat Lunatique did not disappoint; thank you guys for an amazing show!! If you got there after 11:30, you probably had a little less to choose from – try out the Market a bit earlier next week and get your choice of the amazing food our vendors have to offer! If earlier on Sunday doesn’t work for you, a core group of vendors are at the same location on Wednesday afternoon. We’ll be there this week on Wednesday, 3PM-6PM, and we promise less crowds!

CGM representing the Local Food Movement at Alliance Data

The Corrales Growers’ Market was invited to share our local, sustainable food resource with the Alliance Data community in Rio Rancho. Thank you to the vendors that took the time out of their week to expose the folks of Alliance Data to the Corrales Growers’ Market! Hopefully we will see some new faces at the Market on Wednesdays and Sundays.
