Tucson Farmers Markets & Farms: Fresh Food Year-Round
Take A Trip to Bountiful in Scenic Southern Arizona
You can shop year-round for sustainably grown, locally sourced seasonal food at farmers markets in metro Tucson and at small farms and stands in southern Arizona. Both are great places to find Sonoran Desert delicacies like traditional heirloom crops (such as tepary beans), edible native plants (like prickly pear fruit), and regional artisan products (bread made with mesquite flour) in addition to familiar provisions like garlic, herbs, tomatoes, eggs, honey and more.
Special events highlight seasonal harvests, from vineyard blessings to corn maze tours and pumpkin pickings.
In Tucson and southern Arizona, the gardening calendar is year-round so fresh local produce is commonly grown and easily available. Before venturing out to the markets or events, it's a good idea to call ahead and confirm operating days and hours. And remember to bring some cash and a few bags or boxes to carry your purchases.
