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.
If you haven't heard of Little Green Bucket yet, now is your chance to check out this fast growing, eco conscious, residential compost pick up! Launched only a year ago, Little Green Bucket is run by Brad Weikel. He works with Soilutions Inc. to pick up your compostable scraps to be turned back into nutritious, delicious compost! As this company is so new, neighborhoods that this service is offered are limited. Please visit his website (button below) to find out more!
Brad has partnered with the market this year to help us dispose of our compost scraps. He is also going to offering a few, fun compost events. The first of these events is a Compost Giveaway on May 11.
Starting at 8am until gone you're welcome to bring up to a 5 gallon bucket to fill with free compost (provided by Soilutions Inc.) Limit one bucket per customer. First come first serve. Located near the Info Booth.
You're also welcome to bring a bucket of food scraps and other compostables to be dropped off. Please check out his website for a list of what can be composted (see button below).
Just in time for Mother's Day! This is the perfect time to pick up some plants starts, some nutrient dense compost, and surprise mom with some time outside for Mother's Day!
This year at the Market we are working with our local Slow Food extension: Slow Food ABQ. They will be joining our market throughout the season to give seasonal cooking demos! Ingredients will be purchased from our growers the morning of to show case local foods, give you new recipe ideas and offer a chance to taste some delicious produce!
Slow Food ABQ will be at the Market 9-11a on May 4, June 29 and October 5.
Slow Food ABQ promotes food that is “good, clean, and fair.” It is our local chapter of a global movement that is taking place around the world. To learn more go to this website: https://www.slowfoodusa.org/
