Summer Season Going Strong

Bread_smThe Sunday market was booming this week! We had music by David Palsce and Wally Davidson and plenty of locally grown food to go around. New Mexico WIC was also at the Market, signing people up and passing out checks. This is a great opportunity to give more people access to locally grown food. If you know someone that might be eligible for WIC, bring them to the Market! We are serious about food (if you haven’t noticed already!), so bring your family and take advantage of what the Market has to offer the community!

NM Governor Susana Martínez visits Corrales

Governor_PicNew Mexico Governor Susana Martínez visited Corrales this past week to promote the successful expansion of Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) benefits with NM WIC Director Sarah Flores-Sievers. The expansion includes reimbursement for any authorized farm stand in New Mexico, including those like Wagner’s Farm. The expansion also includes the Senior Dollars program, a supplemental food program for low-income seniors. “This expansion helps more of our kids and seniors have access to these fresh fruits and vegetables in communities throughout New Mexico, including areas where grocery markets aren’t always accessible. It’s a great opportunity for both families and farmers,” said Governor Martínez. The expansion took place in 2012, and continues to thrive. Governor Martínez was particularly interested the agricultural history and economics of farmers in New Mexico, and talked in depth with Corrales farmers Al and Bonnie Gonzales and Jimmy Wagner.

Sweet Corn at the Market

Flowers_2This weekend, we saw the first of the corn at the Market. Wagner’s Farm and all the rest of the vendors at the Market this weekend had tons of fresh fruits and vegetables for the community. Squash, potatoes, meat and bread were also at the Market. Paired with a breakfast burrito and music by the Bosque Bassoonists and the Suzuki Violinists, we had a great Sunday Market! The music, market plaza and breakfast are always a great time, but if you can’t make it to the Sunday market, the Wednesday Market has started up, and will run through the end of September, 3PM-6PM at the same location.
