With the solstice on June 21 comes the grand opening of Wednesday Evening Market from 3-7 p.m. in the Railyard, 1607 Paseo de Peralta.
Wednesday Evening Markets will be open from 3-7 p.m. on Wednesdays, June 21 – Sept. 27.
In addition to the freshest produce around, the Santa Fe Farmers’ Market will host fun family activities, multiple farm-fresh dinner options to choose from, and a diverse array of programming from author and storyteller Joe Hayes to Wise Fool New Mexico (circus entertainment).
The Santa Fe Farmers’ Market partners with multiple businesses in the Railyard (including galleries, restaurants, and the Violet Crown) to present the weekly “Wednesday Eve @ The Railyard” event series. Come feed your senses with an evening farmers’ market amazing, art, music, dinner, drinks, family movies, African Dance Classes with Elise Gent, and more!
Opening day on June 21 coincides with “Make Music Santa Fe,” a nationwide music event with a local concert.
Thanks to the Santa Fe Farmers’ Market Institute and the New Mexico Farmers Marketing Association, WIC and EBT are accepted at all four market days by qualifying vendors. EBT transactions will be matched, doubling the purchase power. For more information about the history, impact, and process for this program, visit farmersmarketinstitute.org/programs/dufb.
A $5 raffle will be held with tickets for purchase at every Railyard market June 21 – Sept. 27. Each week they will do a drawing for a market or vendor gift certificate (valued at $15-25). All entries will be entered for a grand prize drawing (value $400 or more) to be selected on Sept. 27.
