We hope you were able to make it to the Market this past Sunday. The Corrales Growers’ Market hosted Shelley Morningsong and Fabian Fontenelle, two world-renown performers. In 2011, Morningsong’s album “Full Circle” received “Record of the Year” by the Native American Music Awards. Fantenelle is an original member of the American Indian Dance Theatre, and provided master-work choreography and performances with two-time Grammy Award Winning artist Robert Mirabal on tour in “Music from a Painted Cave”, also featured on PBS television program “Great Performances”. Their performance was amazing, and everyone at the market stopped to watch. An album of the Market can be found here. Next week, we will have Sol Calypso with us. Bring the kids, 9AM-12PM, this will be a performance you won’t want to miss!
Join us this Sunday for locally grown produce, fresh bread, and pastries, 9AM-12PM. Instead of battling the Albuquerque crowds for brunch, bring Mom to the Growers’ Market for a tasty breakfast burrito, live music and a pleasant atmosphere. It’s going to be clear and sunny, so bring your sunglasses! See you there!
One of the most common questions our vendors get from our customers is ‘Why not start the Market earlier?’. The picture is a reflection of what our farmers brag about…Farm Fresh; Market Fresh. In many cases, a lot of the food you can find on Sunday morning is harvested the same morning before the Market begins. Join us for Cinco de Mayo at the Corrales Growers’ Market, 9AM-12PM. Then, get to know our local artists by participating in the Corrales Art Studio Tour until 5PM. More information about the event can be found here. See you tomorrow!
The first market of Season 10 was a great success. We had 21 vendors and 840 customers this morning and everyone enjoyed the lively music provided by the Squash Blossom Boys. The usual items were available for customers; salad greens, delicious bread and preserves, but the real show-stoppers were the strawberries and asparagus! We are likely to see these items at the market next week, and we hope to see you there as well — May 5th, 9AM-12PM, see you then!
