Railyards Markets To Reopen With Indoor Space

The City of Albuquerque stepped in to help extend the season at the Railyards Market.

The manager of the Railyards Market had planned to end the season early after facing a challenging year due to COVID-19.

However, the city didn't want to see small businesses and vendors to continue to be negatively impacted.

"At the end of all this we need all these businesses to be strong," said Bree Ortiz, community events manager for the City of Albuquerque. "People to be employed."

Ortiz said the Railyards Market typically receives funding from the city, but the delayed budget process caused a delay in funding reaching the market.

Now, the city is providing the market with $20,000.
