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!
Happy New Year! We started 2014 off the right way – with a winter Growers’ Market!

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. Although it was a bit chilly, folks came out to support their local community and purchase fresh, seasonal produce. 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!
The final market was a great way to end to the regular season! Although the morning started out a little cold, vendors were there early to provide fresh food to our wonderful customers. This market was the end of the summer season, but today also marked the beginning of the Winter Market season! The first Sunday of every month through April (11AM-1PM), Growers will have a variety of winter greens, fresh bread, goat’s milk soap, preserves, dried red chili, and more! Committed Growers, fantastic local music and our wonder customers and community all make the Market a success, thank you for your support!
