New Veggie Market in Bernalillo

Since we live in north Rio Rancho, anytime we go to Albuquerque we end up driving through Bernalillo on highway 550.

Half way between I-25 and the Rio Grande River there is a new vegetable market on the north side of the road.  Some local entrepreneur converted a old liquor store into a fresh veggie stand that caters to the local hispanic market.

One day, we decided to stop by and take a quick look at the new market.  I was surprised to find many fresh produce items, as well as, dried items that the local pueblo indians would find useful, like dried corn, corn husks, and melons.

Anyway, I’m glad to see things like this popping up locally.

    Hi Dominic! If you take a right (south) on Hwy 313, approx. 2 miles down the road you will find another local vendor called “The Corner Store” (east side of street) who also sells fresh vegetables, green chile, local grown pinto beans (Estancia I believe) and a variety of items. Mr. Edwin Trujillo is the owner. You can look at his website before you head over. Been around since 2007.
    One of my weekly spots to pick up fresh produce: http://www.thecornerstorenm.com/
    They even sell peanuts out of Portales, NM. Made fruit and nut baskets for X-mas–everyone loved them as his co-business partner hooked me up with the items.

      Cool, thanks for the pointer Melanie. I’ll have to go check them out!
