The fun continues in Corrales this weekend. In addition to the balloons in the sky, the annual 2015 Southwest Regional Tractor and Engine Show took place in Corrales over the weekend. Some of the tractors were over 50 years old, and included The Big 4, a tractor that weighs in at 18,000 pounds and is over 100 years old. The fun didn’t end after the event was winding down – we had an impromptu Tractor Show at the Market this weekend as well. Thank you to Four Corner States who brought their antique tractors and engines to the Market this Sunday. Also a very big THANK YOU to Glenn Schoenbach and John Alsobrook for filling the Market with tractors. To top it off, we had fantastic music by Higher Ground Bluegrass and fresh breakfast burritos from Apple Tree Cafe. The season continues, although fall is in the air, so don’t miss a market! Wednesday afternoon (3PM-6PM) will be our weekly mid-week Market, so stop by and grab some things to hold you over until Sunday. See you soon!
Wednesday Markets continue to thrive while vendors still have crops coming in. This week, customers found onions, cucumbers, okra, onions, apples, cucumbers, red and green chile, and much, much more. Get to the Markets while they last; you know you’ll be missing the weekly fresh produce come the winter! Sunday, we will have live music by Higher Ground Bluegrass as well as views of the balloons. Get to the Market early to get in line for breakfast and chile roasting before the Balloon Fiesta crowds get to the Market! After the Market, continue into Corrales and visit Art in the Park at La Entrada Park. Artists have all sorts of items that your friends and family visiting from out-of-town will enjoy. See you soon, Sunday 9AM-12PM.
This week was the annual Corrales Harvest Festival, and the Market was the place to be Sunday morning. Vendors were at the Market for a couple more hours, 8AM-1PM. If you made it to the Market early this weekend, you were able to drive in and get out before the events of the day started. A BIG thank you goes out to the Squash Blossom Boys for their wonderful music at the Market this weekend. This local favorite never disappoints, and this weekend was no different. Thank you to all the new faces that we saw as well, we hope you’ll come visit the Market again on Wednesday afternoon or next Sunday. See you at the Market!
The Corrales Growers’ Market wouldn’t be the same without two groups of people: our customers and our vendors. Thank you to both who support and sustain the Wednesday Market, it wouldn’t be the same without you! This week, our Market Site Manager, Al Gonzales, took a great panorama shot of the vendors as everyone was just about finished setting up. This year has been our biggest and most successful mid-week Market to date. We have one more scheduled next Wednesday to round out September, you’ll be missing your fresh produce if you miss it! But before that, the next upcoming Market is a big one — this weekend is the annual Corrales Harvest Festival. The Corrales Growers’ Market will be there on Sunday with extended hours – 8AM-1PM, so come early and beat the crowds!! See you soon!
My goodness, what a Market! Thank you to Sol Calypso for another fantastic performance! This week we had all the seasonal favorites, including both red and green chile, watermelon, sweet corn, and flowers. Chile roasting continues at the Market, and you can get your fresh chiles roasted on the spot; all you have to do is clean it and freeze it for later! Although fall is almost here, the Wednesday Market continues, likely through the end of this month (3PM-6PM). Stay tuned for additional updates, both here and on our Facebook page. Also, it’s that time of year again – time for the annual Corrales Harvest Festival. Although it’s a great event, if you’re looking to attend just the Market, vendors will be there at 8AM so that you can drive to the Market, get your things, and get out before the traffic gets crazy. The Squash Blossom Boys will also be playing at the Market next Sunday, which will run with extended hours, 8AM-1PM. See you on Wednesday, and maybe Sunday too!
We had a fantastic mid-week Market this week, perfect weather and all! The red chile is coming in…but not to fear; there is still plenty of green chile for roasting. Now’s the time to mix it up and have both! We also had an impromptu performance by a couple of wonderful customers at the Market today as well, thank you for the music! This is the time of year when you can feel fall just around the corner, especially at night! Vendors still have the summer fruits and vegetables, and pretty soon, you’ll begin to see cold-crops, like more leafy greens. This Sunday we will have favorite performers Sol Calypso! You won’t want to miss this truly unique experience, make sure to bring your friends and the kids. Get to the Market by 9AM and get yourself a piping hot breakfast burrito to eat while you watch them play. See you there! 9AM-12PM.
