Our 2014 Market season has sadly come to an end. We had a great run this year and look forward to seeing everyone back in Robinson Park beginning Saturday, April 18, 2015! It will be here before we know it! We are not having a Winter Market this year, however, we are collaborating with the Rail Yards Market to hold a Holiday Market @ the Rail Yards on Sunday, December 14th from...
Dec 14: Holiday Market @ Rail Yards!
From the heart of our city and in the spirit of our community, neighborhoods unite as the Albuquerque Downtown Growers Market and the Rail Yards Market collaborate for one grand Albuquerque holiday gathering, Sunday December 14th, 2014 from 11 am to 4 pm, at the historic Blacksmith shop of the Rail Yards!
Throughout the summer, both markets have been committed to building a resilient, sustainable local economy that we all love to work and play in. Through food, art, and music, we have brought our community together in an atmosphere of fun, learning, and creativity. We have come to the end of the season, but nowhere near the end of our creative potential as a community, and we want to carry the warmth and inspiration into the holiday season. The Holiday Market will be a fantastic celebration of our local culture; presenting an opportunity for our vast diversity of farmers, chefs, and artisans to share their talents, but also a time for us to come together to support and nourish those in need with food, gifts, and supplies. In the spirit of giving, the event will provide a diverse and dynamic hub for the many neighborhoods of Albuquerque to come to together to donate to families and children during the holiday season, and benefit the Barelas neighborhood that has flourished around the cherished and historic Rail Yards.
We are now accepting applications for the 2015 season! The deadline to apply as an Art vendor is December 31, 2014.
If you are a Grower or a Prepared Food vendor, the 2015 application is due March 6, 2015. Email email@example.com with questions.
