If you’ve been outside in the early morning or evening, you have felt it…fall is here! This means that it’s time to savor all the fresh food you can from the Market, and stock your freezers up before the season comes to an end! Although we still have a month and a half left, nows the time to stock up on roasted green chile, tomato sauce and salsa, onions, and corn. This week’s mid-week Market had all of the above, and more, including fresh flowers, squash, and grapes. This Sunday, the fun continues with the Squash Blossom Boys, Apple Tree Cafe, and the Corrales Makers’ Market next door. Come down and hang out with vendors, 9AM-12PM this Sunday.
Today was all about the people that go above and beyond in Corrales. Each year the Market takes a day to thank our emergency responders for being there when we need them! A special thank you goes out to the Corrales Fire Department for coming to the Market this Sunday and showing off their new brush truck! It’s the envy of the state! Also, thank you goes to The Tumbleweeds for providing great live music for everyone at the Market. This Wednesday, from 3PM-6PM, vendors will be at the Market with more peak-season produce and farm goods, including tomatoes, corn, cumbers, and carrots. It’s beginning to feel a little bit like fall, and you know you’ll miss this Markets when the season comes to an end in November. Now’s the time to freeze green chile and veggies and can tomatoes, apples, and salsa! See you at the next Market!
The Wednesday Market helps to break up the week, especially as we get back into the swing of the school year. A big THANK YOU to everyone that came out and supported the Wednesday Market! People that came left with garlic, corn, cucumbers, tomatoes, zucchini, and flowers, to name a few of our favorites. Our mid-week Market is the best kept secret in the Albuquerque area – no lines for locally grown and produced food! We are a short 10 minute drive from the Alameda/Coors intersection, so come visit us your way home from work. This Sunday, we are very happy to host the local Fire Department for the annual Fire Department Appreciation Day at the Market. Come visit our Corrales Fire Fighters on Sunday, 9AM-12PM. We’ll have live music by The Tumbleweeds and breakfast by Apple Tree Cafe. See you soon!!
It was a nice day at the Market this weekend – we had live music by Mood Swing, breakfast by Apple Tree Cafe, and, most importantly, peak-of-the-season produce! Hopefully you crossed a lot of items off your grocery list – ground beef, salmon, corn, roasted green chile, peaches, and watermelon! You can’t beat the smell of fresh roasted green chile, this weekend we had four vendors roasting chile on site. We also have the Corrales Pet Mayor elections ongoing each Sunday until the Harvest Festival at the end of the month. This time of the year gets pretty busy at the Markets – don’t miss out! The next Market will take place this Wednesday, 3PM-6PM. See you soon!
I think we are really getting the hang of these mid-week Markets!! Thanks to everyone that is coming out to support local agriculture on Wednesday evenings…and stock up on some really great food. This week, vendors had tomatoes, corn, tortillas, flowers, carrots, cucumbers, and much more. The Market is in the perfect location if you’re driving into Corrales on your way home from work, or picking up the kids from school. Stop by and grab a few things… you’ll be in and out in less quick! If you missed the Wednesday, vendors will be at the Sunday Market – same location – 9AM-12PM.
It was a nice day at the Market this past Sunday – we had live music by Los Radiators, breakfast by Apple Tree Cafe, and, most importantly, peak-of-the-season produce! Hopefully you got everything you needed for your Labor Day Celebration – buffalo, steak, fish, corn, goat cheese, watermelon, apples for pie, and grilling onions! Vendors were roasting green chile on site, which means all you have to do is peel it and enjoy! Also – if you missed it, you can vote for the next Corrales Pet Mayor on Sundays up until the Harvest Festival at the end of the month. The next Market will take place this Wednesday, 3PM-6PM. See you soon!
This time of year, there isn’t much of a reason to visit the produce section of the grocery store. You can find all the seasonal fresh produce you need at the Growers’ Markets. “Local food” means that you can have a conversation with the person that grew your food; it means that it was picked when it was ripe yesterday or the same day as the Market, which means it will taste like it’s meant to; and, it means you are supporting agriculture in your community. This Wednesday’s Market had a whole bunch of local food – three different varieties of cucumbers, tomatoes, okra, chile, onions, carrots, tortillas, bread, kale, zucchini, green beans, and flowers! Use this great time of the year to embrace what “local food” really means. Sunday is another chance to participate, with live music by Los Radiators – 9AM-12PM. See you soon! WIC accepted.
