Final Winter Market of the Season
April 1, 2018
Happy Easter! You couldn't ask for nicer weather at the Market this past Sunday morning. The nice overcast weather paired well with the early spring veggies at the Market, including amazing chard and asparagus from Valle Encantado. Everything Joseph Alfaro sells is grown in the South Valley, and he'll be at the opening Market at the end of the month -- April 29th -- from 9AM-12PM. Vendors will also have lots of starters, including tomatoes, peppers, flowers, and herbs. Join us for live music by Mumbo Jumbo Jazz, and breakfast from the Apple Tree Cafe.
Greens, Sugar Peas and Eggs!
March 4, 2018
It was great to see everyone at the Market this weekend! Although it’s still technically winter, you couldn’t tell this Sunday with the gorgeous weather and the Market full of produce and farm goods. This week, we had honeycomb and honey, all types of greens, Bok choy, peas, onions, pecans, preserves, apple chips, and so much more. The Market Shop also has a new type of woven basket — if you missed them, they’ll be at the next Market in April. A special THANK YOU goes out to Ashley Wagner and Friends of Farmland Preservation for being at the final Market, speaking with people about what Bond #4 means for the future of Corrales, and the small cost that the community will take on in order to save such an important part of the Village! If you didn’t have time to vote early – and show your support for preserving farmland in the Village, there is still time! Voting will take place at the Corrales Rec. Center, 7AM-7PM on Tuesday, March 6th.
February Winter Market and Farmland Preservation
February 4, 2018
We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day for the February winter market! A whole lot was going on at the Market this month; vendors had plenty of seasonal goodies, there was live music, brunch, voter registration, and Friends of Farmland Preservation were at the Market, providing information about the upcoming bond election in March. We are only a month away from election day in Corrales, in which residents will be voting on Bond #4 to protect and preserve farmland in Corrales, among other things! If you don’t want to wait until March 6th, you can vote early starting February 14th. Contact Friends of Farmland Preservation for more information. The next winter market in Corrales is only 4 weeks away, so we’ll see you soon…on Sunday, March 4th, 11AM-1PM!
First Winter Market of the New Year
January 7, 2018
Happy New Year! It may be winter, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find some good eats at the Market! This week, vendors had honey, bread, pastries, salad greens, bok choy, pecans, preserves, carrots, and much more. You know how passionate we are about supporting local food, and we are even more excited about preserving farmland in Corrales! 2018 will be an important year for ensuring that Corrales farmland is preserved for the community and for future generations. Friends of Farmland Preservation and Farmer’s Daughter Ashley Wagner were at the Market this Sunday, discussing the importance of protecting Corrales farmland with the community. Farmland preservation is important for preserving wildlife habitats and open spaces, increasing property values, sustaining rural character, and supporting local food resources…including the items you find at the Market! Corrales residents have the opportunity to directly support farmland preservation by voting YES for the municipal bond on MARCH 6th. Check out Friends of Farmland Preservation FB page for more information! We’ll see you at the next winter market – February 4th, 11AM-1PM!
First Winter Market of the Season
December 3, 2017
The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for the first Winter Market in Corrales. Clear and sunny skies greeted everyone this morning, and vendors had a whole lot of seasonal goodies. Vendors had cabbage, broccoli, carrots, onions, baked goods, preserves, bread, eggs and a whole lot more! The Winter Markets are a bit smaller than the regular season Markets, but that doesn’t mean you won’t find what you’re looking for. Winter Markets will continue through April — the first Sunday of every month, 11AM-1PM. The next will be on January 7th, and it may feel like a long time away, but it will be here before you know it!
