What a busy weekend! Saturday and Sunday Wagners Farm hosted the annual Apple and Pumpkin Festival in the Village! We had a lot of traffic in the Village but it sure was a blast. Sunday was an excellent Market paired with live music by Jimmy Abraham and the annual Central New Mexico Tractor Show. We had a lot of different tractors and farm equipment at the Market, and kids got to try them out! Chile roasting was happening throughout the Market, and the peak of the season will be coming to an end soon, so you know it’s time to stuff your freezer full of roasted green chile to last you through next summer! Don’t wait another week – more will be turning red before you know it. Next weekend is a BIG event….the 30th annual Corrales Harvest Festival will be taking place all weekend in the Village! The Market will have extended hours next Sunday: 8AM-1PM. Get to the Market early if you want to beat the Harvest Festival crowds and parking!! As always, the Growers Market will have free admission – we are a community food resource, so bring your bags and get ready to find some amazing produce and farm products to fill your pantry with!
It’s the middle of the week, which means the Wednesday Market in Corrales is the place to be! Stopping by the mid-week Market means you’ll never be missing fresh tomatoes for your salad, or some green chile for rellenos! This week we had Jamison Farms and ARCA at the Market, and they will be here again next Wednesday. This Sunday, we have a great Market planned for everyone. The Central New Mexico Tractor Show will be taking place in Corrales this Sunday. There will be many antique tractors and motorized farming equipment with demonstrations, so bring the kids to this amazing event. Vendors will have freshly harvested fruits and vegetables, as well as fresh baked goods from 9AM-12PM. See you there!
The October season in New Mexico started off with a great Market! We had great live music by the Virginia Creepers and were joined by local artists at Art in the Park! Although we didn’t have any balloons come our way, we will probably see them in the village throughout the week! Thanks to everyone that made it to the Market this Sunday – we had a whole lot of fresh, locally grown produce for everyone, including apples, corn, watermelon and chile. Next Wednesday, vendors will have more of the same great stuff! Stop by our mid-week Market at the same location, 3PM-6PM. We have a really exciting and fun event coming up for next Sunday – the Central New Mexico Tractor Show will take place at the Rec Center. Bring the kids down for this great event!
The Wednesday Market was busy this week with a lot of new faces — thanks for coming out to support local agriculture and seeing what it’s all about! Vendors had flowers, squash, tomatoes, cucumbers, apples, onions, to name a few items. Next Sunday, we have a special Market planned. We will have live music by the Virginia Creepers, and will also have Art in the Park joining us at 9:30AM. However, if you want to get good parking, get to the Market at 9AM, as parking can get a little tight! Vendors will be there with all your favorite seasonal goods 9AM-12PM. See you soon!
The season wouldn’t be complete without a show or two from the Squash Blossom Boys! Thank you to our local Corrales musicians for providing a great show and supporting the Corrales Growers’ Market this weekend! This week was one of our busiest, vendors were selling out left and right! Thanks to all the customers that came to the Market – we will have more the same amazing produce and farm goods at our mid-week Market this Wednesday, 3PM-6PM. The mid-week Market is a bit smaller, but there are less crowds, better parking, and same great centralized location in Corrales.
Feeling the mid-week lull at work? Have the kids’ school schedules driven you crazy yet? Come unwind at the Wednesday Market in Corrales. If you can’t sneak away from work or soccer practice early, don’t worry – vendors are here with a variety of locally grown produce and farm goods until 6PM. Adding the mid-week Market to your schedule will help you break up the week with something to really look forward to…fresh food! This Sunday, we will have The Squash Blossom Boys at the Market, as well as Apple Tree Cafe, the Sandoval County Master Gardeners, and much more. The Sunday Market runs from 9AM-12PM, but we suggest getting there before 10:30AM to ensure you find what you’re looking for! See you at the Market!
Today was all about the people that go above and beyond in The Village. 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 the equipment and tools they use to keep The Village safe and in working order! We had great music by Sol Calypso, warm breakfast burritos, and locally grown produce for everyone to take home. The next Market in Corrales will be on Wednesday, 3PM-6PM. Vendors will be there will all your favorites! Also – next Sunday the Squash Blossom Boys will be playing at the Market – so don’t miss out!
