Rail Yards Market, volunteerism and the Presence of Art

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The Rail Yards Market kicks off in a matter of weeks, and a lot of it would not have been done without the effort of the many volunteers who contribute to its success. Alex Paramo and Yvette Sandoval shared with us just how essential volunteers are to the market; over 115,000 people contributed countless hours in its inaugural year in 2014. Every aspect of the market has been touched by a volunteer, and will continue to. They invite those who want to contribute to its success, no matter their background, to do so.

We also met local artist Sean Wells this morning. This is her second year participating in the market. She, along with a number of artists maintain a significant presence at the market. Be sure to visit her this season.

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