  • An affordable staple of nourishment and creativity
  • A historic treasure in the heart of our City
  • An ode to all things local and fresh
  • A neighbor who is always there to build connection
  • That special & important weekly ritual for you and your family
  • Seeded by the community, for the community
  • The Sunday intersection of New Mexican cuisine, art, and culture
  • A stakeholder of economic development and job creation
  • An idea once thought impossible, but now a must-visit destination to our magical State

If you believe that the Rail Yards Market holds a special place in your heart, like so many of your neighbors, please consider showing some support for our community-powered fundraiser going on right now through May.
