Growing up, the fall lineup of family activities included the occasional trip out to Gus Wagner's to buy squash, corn, and (if I remember) apple cider. As a kid, I hated doing things with my family, so I hated Gus Wagner's.
But now that I'm a grownup (bonk, bonk on the head! bonk-bonk! bonk-bonk!), and these days I work in Corrales about half a mile from there. Gus Wagner's, now just called Wagner's Family Farm (I believe Gus has long since passed away), is brighter, cleaner, and has far more interesting stuff in it than I remember. They have literally tons of pumpkins right now at 25¢ a pound (best price in town, including McCall's), volleyball-sized decorative gourds for a buck each, apples out the wazzoo, corn, and chile for miles! (Red or Green?)
We went and got a bushel (or you can get a whole sack, of course) of hot green roasted today, about $20 including a tip for the roasters. Beautiful. Big, thick, meaty pods roasted perfect so the skin comes away and leaves the entire chile intact.
On top of Wagner's being the most wonderful and economical place to get local produce, they have a little cafe there now, The Apple Tree Cafe, which serves amongst other things, some of the best burritos in town, of course loaded with fresh chile from right there. They have beef, chicken, bean, and breakfast varieties. I get a bean with green and potatoes added. It's the size of your forearm and fresh and filling. Most people I know (both my bosses and my honey) get the chicken. They also make some surprisingly great french fries (thin, crispy, salty), and they've got pretty sweet mini fruit pies and turnovers. I can't recommend it highly enough. BUT, it's a seasonal business, and the season is getting along, if you hadn't noticed.
Wagner's family farm is on Corrales Road, across the street from the Catholic church, on the east side of the road. Go get some chile, squash, pumpkins and burritos before it's too late!
