We are getting too many phone calls from our customers and vendors – so here it is: We will have one more Market this Sunday 9AM-12PM in the regular location! Bring your bags, this is the last time to stock up until the Winter Market in December! See you soon!
What a season! We had tractor shows, the Harvest Festival, the volunteer Fire Department appreciation day, and most importantly, locally grown and produced food. We know buying fresh foods at the grocery store can be a bummer after a season of Growers’ Markets. Take this time to think about where this food comes from, and consider having your own indoor herb garden and supporting local food resources available throughout the winter, like La Montanita Co-Op; there is one on the westside in case you didn’t know! THANK YOU to all the vendors and musicians that participated in the Sunday and Wednesday Corrales Growers’ Markets! Also THANK YOU to all the community members from Corrales, Rio Rancho and Albuquerque for supporting local farmers and coming to the Market for your fresh food. Winter Markets are right around the corner. Through April, Corrales Winter Markets will take place the first Sunday of every month in the same location, 11AM-1PM.
As the regular season for the Corrales Growers’ Market winds down, our produce, entertainment, and commitment to the local agriculture movement continues. New Mexico is the perfect place to develop sustainable food resources, and the produce and farm goods the vendors provide for the community never disappoints! This week we saw carrots, radishes, bread, quail and duck, preserves, tomatoes, onions, pomegranates, and SUNFLOWERS! That’s right — sunflowers this time of year! This year, ARCA Organics developed an Honor system U PICK program in which you can visit the field off of Corrales Road just north of Wells Fargo, and pick as many sunflower as you would like for 1$/stem. This is an honor system, so you leave your payment at the field. This program continues through mid-November, which is coming up fast – so don’t miss out!! The Market also thanks String Dinner for excellent live music at the Market – THANK YOU everyone! There is one more Market for the Regular Season – NEXT SUNDAY 9AM-12PM. After that, we switch over to our Winter Market schedule, which is the first Sunday of every month December-April. See you soon!
These Markets are going by too fast! With just two Markets left of the regular season here in Corrales, we are ending the season with the last of the locally grown food for the season and some great live music! This past Sunday, we had live music by Fair Trade Fusion, and they were great! Lots of chile, apples, carrots and fresh bread; we encourage everyone to STOCK UP on your favorites before the season ends – you know you’ll be missing Market vendors when the season ends! Next Sunday, we will have live music by String Dinner and will be doing it all the right way – our focus is on the food! Come down and be apart of it! Sunday 9AM-12PM.
Thanks to all the vendors and customers that have driven the mid-week Market this year! This week we had our final Wednesday Market of the season. It’s mid-October, which means there are only a handful of Sunday Markets remaining for the regular season before we switch over to our Winter Market schedule, which is the 1st Sunday of every month (11AM-1PM) through April!!
Join us for our last several Markets before it gets too cold! We will have hot breakfast burritos and ton of locally produced food to stock up on! There will be live music thanks to Fair Trade Fusion! Also – the holidays are just around the corner, stock up on all your Growers’ Market essentials from the Market Shop to get your family and friends ready for the Markets this Winter and next season! See you soon – SUNDAY, 9AM-12PM.
What a weekend! The annual Corrales Harvest Festival weekend is always a busy one in Corrales, with people from Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, and beyond visiting the Village. We hope all of you had a great time at the Festival, but also hope you were able to stop by the Market on Sunday and see what we are all about. Vendors were there with extended hours on Sunday, 8AM-1PM. Next Sunday, we will be going back to our normal hours, 9AM-12PM. We had amazing live music from Eileen & Cross Country Trio, as well as piping hot breakfast burritos thanks to Apple Tree Cafe. If you are one of the Market regulars, have no fear – the Market is back to normal next Sunday! If you were new to the Market, we welcome you and hope you’ll be back to visit and grocery shop on Wednesday 3PM-6PM or Sunday 9AM-12PM. There are only a dozen or so more Markets left in the regular season and we know you’ll miss us when we’re gone! Come visit again soon!
Why do you come to the Growers’ Market? There are a lot of reason…great tasting food, supporting your community, knowing where your food is grown, and even an excuse to see old friends. Whatever your reasons for visiting the Market, our wonderful vendors consistently have a variety of food and farm products to choose from. From tomatoes to melons to flowers, our cozy mid-week Market has it all. If you couldn’t make it out, we’ll see you this weekend! The annual Corrales Harvest Festival will be taking over Corrales this weekend, and the Market will be in the middle of all the excitement on Sunday. We will have live music by Eileen & Cross Country, who never disappoints. Apple Tree Cafe will be serving up hot breakfast burritos, and all your favorite vendors will be there. If you want to beat the Harvest Festival traffic, get up a little earlier and get here when the Market opens at 8AM! No doubt, it’s going to be a busy weekend! See you soon — extended Harvest Festival hours – Sunday 8AM-1PM.
