Fodor's Expert Review Rail Yards Market

Barelas/South Valley Transportation Site (Airport, Bus, Ferry, Train) Fodor's Choice
The Sunday market here (May–October, 10–2) is a fine excuse to explore this wondrous, light-filled, almost cathedral-like space, said to have been the largest steam locomotive repair facility in the country in its heyday. Dating back to the early 20th century, the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe buildings here, built on the Atlantic & Pacific originals from the 1880s, put you at the center of how Downtown (or New Town, as it was then known)—and modern Albuquerque—came to be. The market, vibrant with growers and makers, occupies the 1917 Blacksmith Shop.
