Mission Statement

The Downtown Growers’ Market’s mission is to support and promote local agriculture, small business development and community engagement in order to better the economics, health, wellbeing and education of New Mexico residents and visitors.

Description

The Downtown Growers' Market (DGM) is located in historic Robinson Park on Saturdays, April 15-November 4, 8am-noon. The DGM began in 1996, and continues to grow exponentially thanks to our vibrant community. The market is home to over 60 New Mexican growers offering the highest quality produce available in Albuquerque. In addition to our growers we also house a wide array of talented local artists and a delicious mix of prepared food artisans.

Every week we feature a live band, yoga at 9am, community nonprofits, a bike valet service, and lots of community spirit! All are welcome! We accept EBT/SNAP funds (which we'll double for you) , that can be processed at our Information Booth, as well as WIC and Senior checks.

There are many ways to get involved in this community project such as helping with set up, staffing the information booth, assisting in administrative tasks, assiting our Green Initiatives team, monitoring bikes at the bike valet, serving on a fundraiser committee and more!
