It’s already that time of year…mid-week Markets in Corrales have begun. Our Wednesday afternoon markets are traditionally smaller and less crowded than the Sunday Markets, which means you don’t have to wait in line to get what you came for. This week, our vendors had peaches, garlic, cucumbers, tomatoes, eggplant, flowers, and a whole lot more. The Wednesday mid-week Market is the perfect place to stop on your way home from work, or afternoon summer activities with the kids, and grab some items to hold you over until the weekend. We will continue to host the mid-week Market until the season begins to wind down, usually mid-fall. We hope to see you next Wednesday! 3PM-6PM.
Summer continues, and it was warm around 11AM, but so worth it! THANK YOU to Dos Gatos for rockin’ out at the Market this morning. Listen to them again on our Facebook Page! Today we had the most delicious blackberries, peaches, and plums at the Market, along with all the essentials, including corn, tomatoes, garlic, onions, flowers, and bread. And you can’t forget Heidi’s Raspberry Jam, or a couple of fresh pies from Siempre Tarde Farm! The season is roaring, but if you were unable to make it to the Market this past weekend, come visit vendors on Wednesday. The afternoon mid-week Market is beginning THIS WEEK, at the same location – 3PM-6PM. There are less vendors, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find what you’re looking for. Stop by and grab some food on the way home, you won’t be disappointed!
As July continues, we have a few new items to look forward to at the Corrales Growers’ Market. Okra and doughnut peaches were the new arrivals this weekend, and you can expect to see more next Sunday. Thanks to Jug o’ Punch for providing great live music during the Market. It’s not too late to start coming to the market and benefit from what vendors have to offer! You can purchase just about all of your fresh food at the Market, and skip most of the produce section at the grocery store. A handful of vendors also sell non-produce items, including beef, bread, eggs, honey, and preserves. Next week, we will have life music from Dos Gatos, as well as breakfast burritos, and the experience of the Sandoval County Master Gardeners! See you Sunday – 9AM-12PM.
Where were you this past Sunday morning? Hopefully you had time to stop by the Market and get your hands on breakfast and some of the amazing food vendors were selling! The season got off to a hot start in June, but things are beginning to come in, including tomatoes, peaches, plums, and green beans. Now is the time to stock up, and eat up! Thanks to Zoltan & the Fortune Tellers for coming out and supporting the Market – hope you had a chance to hear them perform live! Next Sunday, the Market will continue to grow, and vendors will have more of the great produce and agricultural goods you have come to expect this time of year! Think ‘seasonal’! There will be live music by Jug o’ Punch, and Apple Tree Cafe will be serving up some breakfast. Sunday, July 16th, 9AM-12PM.
We hope everyone enjoyed the long 4th of July weekend and had the chance to relax with family and friends. This weekend at the Market we had great live music by Spankey Lee, and the Corrales Makers Market is going strong! This time of year, you can find cherries, peaches, apricots, green beans, onions, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, and much more. 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 hear from musical by Zoltan & The Fortune Tellers. Hope you can make it — there will be a breakfast burrito waiting with your name on it!
This past weekend we had a ton of fruit at the Market. The first of the peaches are coming in, along with the cherries, apricots and figs! Thank you to Apple Tree Cafe, Beautiful William, and all the vendors that came out to share their great produce and other products with the community. This past weekend was the first Corrales Maker’s Market as well. Although these great group of New Mexican artists have started with a small group, they will be growing in size as the Market season continues. Visit them next weekend to see what they are all about! Next weekend we will have live music by a community favorite, Spanky Lee. So – bring the kids and get ready to sing some classics, including “The Itsy Bitsy Spider”. See you Sunday – 9AM-12PM!
The annual Fathers’ Day Tractor Show has come and gone!! THANK YOU to the Corrales Tractor Club for making this event such a success. The tractors were amazing, and we can’t wait to have them at the Market in August at the Historic Tractor Show! Thanks to Friends Forever for live music, and to Apple Tree Cafe for the tasty breakfast. The Sandoval Master Gardeners were at the Market, who provide valuable expertise in keeping your garden alive! The season is really moving along – late spring in New Mexico means cherries, apricots, and peaches! Enjoy all of these fruits at the next Market on Sunday, June 25th. We will have live music by Beautiful William – 9AM-12PM.
