What a GREAT market we had this weekend – vendors loved seeing all the new faces along with our regulars at the Market. We hope you enjoyed live music by the Squash Blossom Boys, tractor rides, as well as all the locally grown fruits and veggies. The Harvest Festival is a great time to see what Corrales has to offer – we hope you had time to stop by the Market this morning. Chile roasting was going on all morning, and the Apple Tree Farm couldn’t make burritos fast enough. If you’re new to the Growers’ Market scene, or one of our regulars, we will be at the same location on Wednesday with all the essentials – 3PM-6PM. You can also stop by next Sunday, 9AM-12PM — we will have music by Friends Forever. See you soon…and bring your bags!
We had a fantastic Wednesday Market this week – roasted chile, onions, mushrooms, three different varieties of eggplant, and giant apples! If you’re in a rush to grab some food on the way to pick up the kids or after work, this Market is for you. Our Wednesday vendors will be here next Wednesday as well, 3PM-6PM. Stop by and pick up your favorites from the Market while also supporting local agriculture! WIC and other checks can be used at the Growers’ Markets.
The chile roasting at the Market this Sunday made the whole area smell fantastic – what better than the smell of green chile in the morning!? In addition to green chile, we had apples, corn, bread, and onions, to name a few of our most popular items. We hope you had the chance to come out and enjoy the great food and local music by Mood Swing this Sunday. The Wednesday Market is still going strong – vendors will be there this Wednesday from 3PM-6PM. Finally, next weekend is Harvest Festival weekend – the Growers’ Market will have extended hours – 8AM-1PM on Sunday only. You can visit the Market, then hop on a hay ride, which will be dropping off/picking up at the Market. See you this week!
The Wednesday Corrales Growers Market is a fantastic opportunity to speak with the vendors about the products they provide to the community. Less crowds means they have more time to answer any questions you have abut a particular vegetable, or just discuss what’s going on in the community. Our Wednesday Market will continue through about mid-October, and the Sunday Market will continue through November 2nd. Come and enjoy the fresh produce while you still can! The summer season will be over before you know it.
Sol Calypso was at the Market this Sunday, and as always, they put on quite a show! In addition to the great music, vendors were happy to see the community out and about at the Market this weekend. Supporting local agriculture is what the Market’s all about – we hope you’re finding everything we are looking for! Peaches, okra, tomatoes, and green beans are still in season, but you’re also seeing the later season crops too; chile, corn, apples, to name a few items. Next Sunday we will have music by Mood Swing…don’t miss ‘em!
This Wednesday, people opted to skip the State Fair and attend the Wednesday Market! We feel the same way they do – locally produced and grown food beats over-priced giant turkey legs any day! During this time of the season, you can find it all – squash, cucumbers, onions, tomatoes, flowers, bread, chile, corn, melons, and okra – to name a few. Join us on Sunday, 9AM-12PM and listen to the unique sounds of Sol Calypso. Don’t miss it!
