Saturday June 1 is our annual Salad Mixer Fundraiser. From 10am until gone, purchase a plate for $5 to try all three locally crafted salads! Our three chefs will prepare their own dressing and are allowed one special ingredient... everything else is purchased or donated from farmers the day of the event.
This is a great chance to support the market (and in turn support the small businesses that sell there), while tasting the creative talents of Albuquerque chefs.
For more ways to support the market visit the 'Donate' or 'Get Involved' tab at the top of the page.
