We hope everyone enjoyed Memorial Day Weekend. This past Sunday at the Market we had favorite Katie Gill, who provided some amazing live music for the market. We also had snap peas, potted plants, flowers, eggs, greens, root crops, and artichokes. The items you can find at the Market will change as the season goes on, so come by every week to see what you can find. Next weekend, we will have live music by Jimmy Abraham. Come grocery shopping at the market, and bring a friend!
May Markets are going strong, and we couldn’t be happier to host Shelley Morningsong & Fabian Fontenelle at the Market. They provided fantastic music and dancing for the Market and even got the community involved. Thank you to our fantastic customers that came out this weekend, we hope you found what you were looking for. Fruit will be here before you know it, but until then, stock up on all the early spring crops, like carrots, onions, spinach and kale, and other greens. For the Memorial Day-weekend market, we will have live music by Katie Gill. See you next weekend, and bring everyone visiting from out-of-town to the Market – 9AM-12PM.
We were so happy to see everyone at the Market this weekend, especially all the mothers! The New Mexico spring weather was perfect for the Market, and we had great live music by David Palsce & Wally Davidson. This time of year, you are able to find lots of root crops and greens, including carrots, radishes, beets, spinach, lettuce and chard. Vendors also had peas, onions, bread, pies, pecans, and beef! As the season gets going, you will begin to see more variety at the market, but, embrace the seasonality of the crops! There are many different meals you can make with the produce, meat and eggs that are currently available. If you need inspiration or ideas, seasonal recipes can be found on the NM Farmers Market Association page. Next weekend we will have very special guests and friends of the CGM, Shelley Morningsong & Fabian Fontenelle. Don’t miss out! See you next weekend, 9AM-12PM.
On April 29th, 2015, the Corrales Growers’ Market lost one of its own. Vendor, friend and advocate for sustainable agriculture, Stuart Findley passed away after battling a long illness. Stuart was a pilot for many years flying C-147 aircraft, which took him to many different parts of the world, yet, he still made time to farm in Corrales. After a long career as a pilot, Stuart retired a few months ago to focus on farming and family. Stuart often brought flowers, fruit, tomatoes, carrots, peas and rhubarb to the market, to name a few items. We will miss his dedicated commitment to this community and the Growers’ Market. The growers’ of the Market extend their sympathy and support to Stuart’s family.
We had a fantastic Market this weekend – with live music by Joe Gonzales. Hope you were able to make it to the Market this morning, Apple Tree Cafe had breakfast burritos for everyone, and all the vendors were happy to see everyone. Currently, vendors have spinach, beet greens, chard, radishes, baked goods, honey, bread, dried red chile, and plants for your vegetable garden! We look forward to seeing you next weekend – we will have live music by David Palsce & Wally Davidson. See you then – 9AM-12PM.
This weekend was the first Market of the regular season. Despite the morning showers, our 14 vendors started off the year the right way – fresh produce, bread, preserves and honey, and all the potted plants you’ll need to get your vegetable garden up and running for the season! This weekend, we plan on having lots of sunshine, burritos and live music by Joe Gonzales. We hope to see you there — 9AM-12PM!
