All aboard! The Rail Yards Market, Albuquerque’s iconic Farmers’ Market is slated to re-open on May 5th, 2019. The market will bloom into its sixth 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.
