This past weekend we had a ton of fruit at the Market. The first of the peaches are coming in, along with the cherries, apricots and figs! Thank you to Apple Tree Cafe, Beautiful William, and all the vendors that came out to share their great produce and other products with the community. This past weekend was the first Corrales Maker’s Market as well. Although these great group of New Mexican artists have started with a small group, they will be growing in size as the Market season continues. Visit them next weekend to see what they are all about! Next weekend we will have live music by a community favorite, Spanky Lee. So – bring the kids and get ready to sing some classics, including “The Itsy Bitsy Spider”. See you Sunday – 9AM-12PM!
The annual Fathers’ Day Tractor Show has come and gone!! THANK YOU to the Corrales Tractor Club for making this event such a success. The tractors were amazing, and we can’t wait to have them at the Market in August at the Historic Tractor Show! Thanks to Friends Forever for live music, and to Apple Tree Cafe for the tasty breakfast. The Sandoval Master Gardeners were at the Market, who provide valuable expertise in keeping your garden alive! The season is really moving along – late spring in New Mexico means cherries, apricots, and peaches! Enjoy all of these fruits at the next Market on Sunday, June 25th. We will have live music by Beautiful William – 9AM-12PM.
It was a beautiful morning at the Market this past Sunday, with 29 vendors stock full of delicious food. It’s the time of year that you can start shopping less at the grocery store and more at the Growers’ Market! This week, we had cherries, apricots, peas, carrots, too many types of leafy greens to count, eggs, beef, and preserves, to name a few items. Also, a special thank you to Bosque Bassoonists and Golden Scroll Violinists for providing music at the Market this weekend. Next weekend we have a great event planned – the annual Fathers’ Day Tractor Show! Come down and enjoy the tractors, have some breakfast, and do some grocery shopping. Tractors, vendors, and breakfast will be there, 9AM-12PM.
The Markets keep getting better and better. This week we were very happy to host Higher Ground at the Market. This local bluegrass band never disappoints, and their performance at the Market was no exception. Paired with the excellent music was breakfast from Apple Tree Cafe, gardening advice from the Sandoval County Master Gardeners, and tons of locally produced food. Many items that you purchase at the grocery store can be purchased at the Market instead, including beef, salmon, eggs, jelly, carrots, onions, peas, and other fresh produce. Next Sunday, the Market will be hosting the Bosque Bassoonists and Golden Scroll Violinists. Vendors will be there, 9AM-12PM. Bring your bags and start the week off right!
Happy Memorial Day! We hope you had a good time at the Market picking up everything you needed to celebrate with your friends and family. Vendors had fresh beef and salmon, broccoli and cauliflower, mixed greens, snap peas, cherries, and baked goods. The season is under way, make the trip to the Corrales Market a weekly habit… you won’t be disappointed in how you spend your Sundays! Next week, Higher Ground will be at the Market, along with new items coming into season! See you Sunday, 9AM-12PM.
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.
