Rail Yards market: Super hero day May 19th, 2019

Be a local SUPER HERO at the Rail Yards Market! What's your super power?? Some grow food, make beauty, or nourish those in need. Make a big impact locally by supporting your region's food shed and small business economy. The Kryptonian, Super Man AKA Clark Kent, gained his strong values and altruistic nature from his young days growing up and working on a farm--his adopted Farmer parent endowed him with compassion and taught him to harness his super powers for the help of others.

Our agricultural network in New Mexico is superbly powerful and bountiful and contributes to a growing and flowing history of the Rio Grande basin. Positive change starts from within, and you have the power to transform our world by making sustainable choices and progress in your community.

We expect all of the burque heroes to be in full effect THIS SUNDAY!


Cape Making :: Become your own superhero by making your own superhero cape at the Children's Zone! It's Free!

Service Dogs are Super! :: Service dogs NM is a life changing service for people with special needs in the community. They help individuals with certain disabilities grow a connection with loving furry service dogs!
