Rail yards market veggie box: support the market &local farms
The Rail Yards Market brings together several local farms from around Albuquerque and the middle Rio Grande Valley, to provide you with a bountiful assortment of seasonal local veggies & fruits! Every week is a little different and includes a variety produce from participating farms. Most weeks feature 4-6 produce varieties, including vegetables and fruits as seasonally available.
Preorder your veggie box by Friday night at 11:59pm for guaranteed pickup at the market Sunday! We sometimes have a few for sale at the market while they last, but they go fast.
Support the market and support local farmers; 80% of sales go directly to farms, and 20% is donated to the market.
