Sol Calypso and Fresh Produce

Mushrooms_1Sol 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!

Wednesday in Corrales

VegetablesThis 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!

Corrales Fire Department at the Sunday Market

FireDepartment_3_smTHANK 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.
