As the Balloon Fiesta completed it’s final ascension of the year, the Market was hustling and bustling with people from the community as well as people visiting from out of town. The wind patterns were in our favor this morning and we got to see the balloons pass over the river and round out over the Market. Thank you to everyone that came out this morning, customers and vendors! We had fresh pumpkins from the fields, as well as the smell of roasting red and green chile. A special thank you goes out to the wonderful musicians we had at the Market this morning – thank you to Sage & Jared’s Happy Gland Band for providing awesome music all Market long! We hope you’ll stop by on Wednesday to fill your refrigerator with more locally grown produce. Help support the community throughout the entire season! See you Wednesday, 3PM-6PM!
As the fall season continues, so do the Markets. Thank you to the customers that came out to the Wednesday Market to support local growers and take advantage of this local food resource. Vendors continue to have products, so we have another Wednesday Market planned next week, 3PM-6PM. Check the website or Facebook page for regular updates! This Sunday will be the final day of the International Balloon Fiesta…so if you still have family or friends visiting from out of town, bring them to the Market to watch the balloons fly and eat a delicious breakfast burrito or baked good. Vendors will be there Sunday, 9AM-12PM. Hope to see you there!
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!
