Our final Winter Market of the season was a great way to kick off spring – warm weather, spring vegetables, fresh bread; you couldn’t ask for more! We were delighted to see over 600 customers, and over 70% of our vendors sold out! If this is any glimpse of how the season is going to be, please get to the market early so you are sure to get what you came for! The market was also happy to host Red Chair Travels with the Sandhill Crane B&B. The Red Chair Travels is an exciting movement that is meant to connect people across the United States and motivate you to travel and get to know the different communities across the great states; and why not stay at a local B&B while you’re at it?! Follow them on Facebook to see where the Red Chair has been, and where it is going. Pictures of our Market can be found here. We will see you at the end of April with musical guest the Squash Blossom Boys!
March is here and so are the early spring crops! We had a great winter market this morning — 17 vendors provided a variety of produce, eggs, pastries and preserves for the ~500 customers that came to the market. There was plenty of delicious food to go around, and everyone left with baskets and bags full of locally grown food. The Corrales Growers’ Market will have one final Winter Market this season on April 6th, 11AM-1PM, then the 2014 Season will begin April 27th with music by the Squash Blossom Boys. Don’t forget to check our website and Facebook page for further updates. We look forward to seeing you next month!
The third winter market of the season took place on Sunday, February 2nd. The Market hosted over 400 customers, who snacked on homemade pastries while looking for their favorite winter crops. Vendors continue to provide local seasonal produce and other products to our customers throughout the year; carrots, spinach, bread, honey and preserves are some of the items at the Market this time of year. Our next Market will be on March 2nd at 11AM. See you there!

This past Sunday, 11AM-1PM, the first Winter Market of the 2013 season took place in Corrales. Fresh salad greens, chard, red chili, fresh bread, and garlic were at the Market, to name a few items.

We had a total of 17 vendors and nearly 500 customers this weekend, a fantastic turnout! We hope to see just as many people next month, on Sunday, January 5th 2014!
