We love our Wednesday customers! This Wednesday Market, vendors had all the summer crop favorites, including squash, tomatoes, flowers, peaches and onions. The Wednesday Market is the perfect size for some mid-week grocery shopping. No crowds, but there’s still all the Market goodies. If you missed us today, we will be here next week, same time, 3PM-6PM.
The Sunday market was booming this week! We had music by David Palsce and Wally Davidson and plenty of locally grown food to go around. New Mexico WIC was also at the Market, signing people up and passing out checks. This is a great opportunity to give more people access to locally grown food. If you know someone that might be eligible for WIC, bring them to the Market! We are serious about food (if you haven’t noticed already!), so bring your family and take advantage of what the Market has to offer the community!
Great Wednesday Market this week! We had locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as flowers and honey! The NM WIC office was also at the Market, passing out checks to those that qualified. If you would like to learn more about WIC, and what it provides to the community, you can read more here. Sunday, we will have music by David Palsce and Wally Davidson, as well as breakfast and locally grown food. See you Sunday!
New Mexico Governor Susana Martínez visited Corrales this past week to promote the successful expansion of Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) benefits with NM WIC Director Sarah Flores-Sievers. The expansion includes reimbursement for any authorized farm stand in New Mexico, including those like Wagner’s Farm. The expansion also includes the Senior Dollars program, a supplemental food program for low-income seniors. “This expansion helps more of our kids and seniors have access to these fresh fruits and vegetables in communities throughout New Mexico, including areas where grocery markets aren’t always accessible. It’s a great opportunity for both families and farmers,” said Governor Martínez. The expansion took place in 2012, and continues to thrive. Governor Martínez was particularly interested the agricultural history and economics of farmers in New Mexico, and talked in depth with Corrales farmers Al and Bonnie Gonzales and Jimmy Wagner.
