Farmers' Markets

Grab a reusable shopping bag and take a trip to bountiful Tucson & Southern Arizona, a region known for its 4,000-year-old continuous agricultural history.

Fresh Picked For You

Farmers' markets offer garden-fresh, sustainably grown, seasonal food year-round in metro Tucson and beyond. These markets are good places to find traditional heirloom crops, edible Sonoran Desert-adapted plants, and other regionally produced foods. They're also fine places to meet and socialize with farmers, artisans, and other customers. 

To harvest your own or purchase just-picked fruits and veggies, visit a family-owned farm or orchard in rural Southern Arizona. Make a day of it by going during a special event, such as Garlic Festival in July with RichCrest Farms at Triangle T Ranch, Roasted Chile Festival in September at Rincon Valley Farmers' Market, and Fall Pumpkin Celebration in October at Apple Annie's, to name a few.

Not certain which to visit? Explore the region's offerings with the Arizona Experience U-Pick Farm map, the Local Fresh mobile-friendly website, or use our list below. Before venturing out, it's wise to confirm operating days and hours. If you're a farm owner or farmers' market representative and want to update your information, please contact us. Information is valid as of September 2016.


 

This is more than just being connected to food, it's about being connected to where we live and our community.
