CGM – Historic Tractor Show

Tractors_2_smThank you, THANK YOU to the Corrales Tractor Club for making this year’s Historic Tractor Show a great success! We had a total of 8 tractors at the Market today, as well as 42 vendors and great music by Zoltan Orkestar. We hope you enjoyed the Market as much as we did. The Apple Tree Cafe was busy all morning, and vendors were happy to see so many people out and about at the Market. Fruit was the big thing at the Market this week – vendors had grapes, watermelon, peaches, blackberries, raspberries, cantaloupe, honeydew, and apples. The flowers are in full bloom as well, cosmos, giant sunflowers, and zinnias were at the Market today as well. Thank you to everyone that came out to the Market this weekend, it was fantastic to see the community supporting local agriculture!

NM WIC at the Wednesday Market

WIC_2_smCGM had a pleasant Market today, with your choice of peaches, tomatoes, carrots, bread, flowers, and much more. We would like to thank the New Mexico WIC Program for making it to the Market today to sign people up for WIC and hand them their checks right at the Market. This makes purchasing healthy food options particularly easy. If you are ever unsure of what to do what that strange looking squash… have no fear! Ask the farmers about their favorite ways to prepare their produce, they are happy to share! Also – the Historic Tractor Show is happening THIS Sunday – 9AM-12PMYou’d be crazy if you missed it! We will also have music by Zoltan Orkestar, sweet corn, peaches, raspberries, grass-fed beef and so much more! Bring your bags and stock up on locally grown food!

CGM at the Sandoval County Community Health Fair

Watermelon_Baby_smThe Corrales Growers’ Market was happy to be a guest at the Sandoval County Community Health Fair in Bernalillo, NM! There were representatives from Lovelace, Presbyterian, Molina, and the New Mexico Department of Health, to name a few that were there to support the health of the community through education. The Corrales Growers’ Market was delighted to be there to represent the grassroots movement of nutrition. Special thanks to Lopez Farm (Socorro), Carassco Farm (Belen) and Wagner’s Farm (Corrales) for not only the fresh fruits and vegetables, but also for the opportunity to interact and educate parents about the nutritional value of locally grown produce.
