I’ve never meet a flea market that I didn’t love. It’s aways fun to see old wares, handmade goodies and try artisanal everything at local markets! I recently did just that in New Mexico at the very interesting Rail Yards Market.
Located in the Barelas neighborhood of Albuquerque, the Rail Yards has been around for decades that was once the hub of economic activity in the area. Now, the Rail Yards are undergoing a major renaissance where movies and TV shows are regularly filmed. It is also the location of an incredible flea market that’s filled with fresh produce, arts and crafts, yoga, sweets and treats, music and more.
The location is also filled with so much character as seen from its colorful windows, you’ll be equally mesmerized by the location as much as the market where you can freely walk around and gawk inside the broken down windows.
Walking around the Rail Yards it was cool to be amongst this massive space that was filled with sellers and artisans. The kids loved getting huge watermelon and mango juices and cookies. They also had a kids’ corner where the kids could listen to stories, color and get balloons. The coolest thing (to me) was seeing all of the handmade jewelry and scoring some local veggies that we enjoyed all week long.
Not just about buying things, you can also experience tons of local events and themed activities like belly dancing, yoga and so much more! They also have an incredible holiday market where over 100 vendors will exhibit their local wares.
A fun experience for people of all ages, the Rail Yards Market is a must-see if you ever make your way to New Mexico.
