What's going on, Albuquerque?
The Rail Yard Market looks wonderful. I hope it does not keep people from going to the Downtown Growers Market on Saturday mornings.
Albuquerque cab companies have been trying to keep out competition forever. Yes, they are definitely afraid it will be better. The quote from the cab driver in the story is that Albuquerque isn't a cab city. Well, yes and no. I think more people would take cabs if they were a)cheaper and b)you didn't have to wait a year for one to pick you up.
ABQ Yellow Cab is awful. I called for a ride to the airport and was told I'd have a 5 to 20 minute wait. 30 minutes later, I called back and was told they'd momentarily shut down because of an "incident with police" but would be along in 5-10 minutes. 15 minutes later I took my own car. All this while they had my number and could have been updating me to any delays...
DCMc, I wondered about that too. But so far the Rail Yards event seems to be more focused on arts and crafts and prepared foods rather than produce, so maybe there's room for both. Several vendors appear to be doing both events.
I wish the city wouldn't destroy the 4th Street Mall, and instead focus on developing the Rail Yard. Maybe it could be a destination for the Rail Runner and Amtrak....
Smart move to set up the alternative Indian Market at their railroad station - now they can tie into the Rail Runner, so folks from ABQ can take the train to the market, shop there and also downtown Santa Fe.
