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!
THANK YOU to everyone that came out to support the Corrales Volunteer Fire Department this weekend. The Fire Department brought their Swift Water Rescue Gear to the Market, and the kiddos couldn’t get enough of it! We had music by the Haiku Cowboys, and Apple Tree Cafe couldn’t keep up with the burrito orders! This time of the season, we have just about everything you can think of – don’t bother visiting the produce or bread section at the grocery store; our wonderful vendors have you covered! Visit us this Wednesday, where you can beat the crowds but still find all the fresh produce, bread, flowers and honey you’re looking for.
GREAT Market this afternoon – our biggest mid-week market yet! If you came for your favorites – you probably left with your bags filled. Mushrooms, peaches, cucumbers, green chile, onions, flowers, tomatoes and bread were only some of the items at the Market this week. This Market is meant to keep you from having to stop at the grocery store on your way home; stop at the Market; you won’t be disappointed! This weekend we will be having our Corrales Fire Department Annual Fundraiser. The volunteer Fire Department will have a truck or two for the kiddos to enjoy. Come support your community! See you there; 9AM-12PM.
The Labor Day weekend Corrales Growers’ Market was booming this past Sunday…sweet melons, peaches, okra, tomatoes, chile and corn were at the Market – we hope you were able to find everything you were looking for! We had special musical guest Sage and Jared’s Happy Gland Band to serenade the Market, and KARMA was adjacent in the Rec. Center field. We will be here Wednesday, for our mid-week Market; 3PM-6PM. This Market is smaller than the Sunday Market, but still has all the locally grown essentials; corn, peaches, flowers, bread, tomatoes, cucumbers, squash…the list goes on! Next Sunday, we will have musical guest Haiku Cowboys for our annual Corrales Volunteer Fire Department Fundraiser. PLEASE…support your local community and stop by! We will have the Fire Department at the Market…bring the kids and the camera!
