The Market season went out with a bang this year! Thank you to everyone that came out to visit the 20 vendors at the Market, we hope you stocked up on everything you needed! As always, breakfast burritos were provided by Apple Tree Cafe, who has been at the Market all year providing you with a hearty breakfast. Thank you to all the vendors that made this season such a success. Vendors had the last of the tomatoes, celery, apples, corn, and squash, but have no fear! Farmers are already growing winter crops and preparing for the winter season. On December 6th, you’ll be able to find items like bread, eggs, spinach and lettuce, radishes, onion and garlic. More items at the winter markets can be found on the left sidebar. Until then, have a Happy Thanksgiving and thank you for being a part of our local food movement. Vendors will be at the Market on December 6th, 11AM-1PM.
It might be getting cold, and the trees are looking tired, but the season isn’t over! We had over 20 vendors at the Market this Sunday, and we are expected to have the same vendors at the Market next week. And just because it’s November doesn’t mean you can’t find fresh items at the Market…this Sunday we had cabbages, eggplant, all sorts of peppers and chile, cucumbers, cauliflower, snap peas, leaks, radishes, tomatoes, celery, apples, flowers, bread, honey….the list goes on!! We would also like to thank Mood Swing for stepping up and providing music at the Market, thank you! Join us next week for a hot breakfast burrito and stock up on all the fresh produce you can before the season finishes up! There will be plenty of vegetables to can or freeze! See you there, 9AM-12PM.
With only a couple markets left in the regular season schedule, folks were at the Market this Sunday stocking up on all the essentials! Tomatoes and cucumbers for canning, roasted chile for the freezer, and dried herbs and spices for the cabinet! But it’s not too cold yet…vendors had plenty of pumpkins for jack-o-lantern carving and pumpkin pies, fresh flowers, and apples, greens and much, much more fresh produce. In addition to all the items vendors had at the Market, we had amazing live music by Monday Catfish Blues AND Buddha Belly Blues! Thanks to everyone that came out! Next Sunday is our last scheduled market of the regular season BUT depending on what produce is available we may be extending our season…. stay tuned! There will me more updates next week! See you soon! Sunday 9AM-12PM with live music by Mood Swing!
What another fantastic Market this Sunday! This weekend, a whole lot was going on in Corrales. Wagner Farms had their annual Apple Festival in Corrales, and at the Market, we had a surprise event sponsored by the Corrales Fire Department, the City of Rio Rancho, Bernalillo and Sandoval County! Pictured to the left is Bonnie Gonzales, the Corrales Growers’ Market President, with Corrales Fire Chief Anthony Martinez. If you were in the Village this morning, you couldn’t miss the PINK fire truck at the Market! October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, and officers and fire fighters at the Market were showing their support! In addition to this great event, we had live music by Eileen & Cross Country, and they were amazing! THANK YOU to everyone that came out to enjoy breakfast burritos, and support your community! See you next Sunday, 9AM-12PM with live music from Monday Catfish Blues.
The final Wednesday Market of the year is a real sign that the season is winding down. Crisp fall weather, red chile and pumpkins are a signal of the changing season. Thank you to everyone that supported the mid-week Market throughout the season. This Market is all about one thing: food! The last Wednesday Market was no different – tomatoes, onions, oyster mushrooms, cucumbers and chile were some of the items people took home this afternoon. Vendors will have the same plus more on Sunday, as well as live music by Eileen & Cross Country. Come down on Sunday and support your local community! See you there! 9AM-12PM
As the Balloon Fiesta completed it’s final ascension of the year, the Market was hustling and bustling with people from the community as well as people visiting from out of town. The wind patterns were in our favor this morning and we got to see the balloons pass over the river and round out over the Market. Thank you to everyone that came out this morning, customers and vendors! We had fresh pumpkins from the fields, as well as the smell of roasting red and green chile. A special thank you goes out to the wonderful musicians we had at the Market this morning – thank you to Sage & Jared’s Happy Gland Band for providing awesome music all Market long! We hope you’ll stop by on Wednesday to fill your refrigerator with more locally grown produce. Help support the community throughout the entire season! See you Wednesday, 3PM-6PM!
As the fall season continues, so do the Markets. Thank you to the customers that came out to the Wednesday Market to support local growers and take advantage of this local food resource. Vendors continue to have products, so we have another Wednesday Market planned next week, 3PM-6PM. Check the website or Facebook page for regular updates! This Sunday will be the final day of the International Balloon Fiesta…so if you still have family or friends visiting from out of town, bring them to the Market to watch the balloons fly and eat a delicious breakfast burrito or baked good. Vendors will be there Sunday, 9AM-12PM. Hope to see you there!
