Photo Trip: Albuquerque Railyards Market

 

Albuquerque RailyardsEarlier in the summer, during the time when I had no car, Xavier and I took a field trip to the Albuquerque Railyards Market.

The Market itself is interesting. There are tons of vendors selling all kinds of things but primarily food, organic produce and handmade goods like organic soap. To be honest though, I wasn’t that interested in the Market.

What interested me was being able to walk around the whole complex and look inside the abandoned buildings. Visitors are not allowed to go inside the buildings but you can stand at the door or at a open window and take all the photos you like. So I did.

The buildings of the Railyards were mostly constructed between 1914 and 1924 and were in use until the mid 1990’s. In 2007 the City Of Albuquerque purchased the site with an aim towards preservation and restoration. Today, it’s primary function is hosting the Market and being used as an awesome location for filming movies and TV shows. The Railyards have appeared in several episodes of Breaking Bad and in The Avengers movies.
