All aboard! The Rail Yards Market of Albuquerque, a non-profit project presented by the Barelas Community Coalition is slated to re-open on May 6th, 2018. The market will bloom into its fifth year since opening in 2014, and hosts over 100 vendors of fresh produce, fine food, healing hands, and handmade art. Spring couldn’t be here fast enough, as farms, foodies, artisans, and organizers chug along to prepare the finest Growers’ Market experience for locals and tourists alike.
The theme for the Rail Yards Market’s grand opening is Traditions. The cultivation of our food, telling of stories, teaching of techniques, passing on wisdom, and so much more are important ingredients of our culture and rituals of our existence on this realm. Celebrate our traditions unique to New Mexico and indulge your loca-vorian spirit at the Rail Yards Market!
