Rail Yards Market

The Rail Yards Market

The Rail Yards Market of Albuquerque operates on Sundays from 10am-2pm during the months of May-October. We are a community organized market celebrating all things local and at the heart of New Mexican culture.

We are so much more than your typical Farmer’s or Grower’s Market — every Sunday you can peruse hundredss of New Mexico’s finest food, farm, artisan, and healing vendors, hear live musicians, and come away enriched from our education/demonstration zones for kids and adults! All this under one roof at the historic Blacksmith Shop at the heart of our City!

Our Vision

The Rail Yards Market of Albuquerque is focused on building a resilient, sustainable local economy that we all love to work and play in. Through food, art, and music, we hope to bring our community together in an atmosphere of fun, learning, and creativity. Rail Yards Market is a community organization operating under the fiscal sponsorship of a Barelas Community Coalition, a certified 501(c)(3).
