Farmers' Markets

Grab your shopping bag and stock up on fresh produce from the bountiful Tucson and Southern Arizona region.

Southern Arizona Farmers' Markets & Farms

Take A Trip to Bountiful

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, for example) in addition to familiar items like garlic, herbs, tomatoes, eggs, honey, and more.

Tucson's gardening calendar is year-round so watch for special events tied to the seasons: Citrus Jubilee at Heirloom Farmers Market in January; Ciolim Harvest (cholla cactus flower buds) at San Xavier Co-op Farm in April; Roasted Chile Festival at Rincon Valley Farmers’ Market in September; Sahuarita Pecan Festival at Green Valley Pecan Company in November - to name a few.

If you want to pick your own or purchase farm-fresh fruits and veggies, head south of Tucson for a day trip to Apple Annie’s Orchard & Farm. To take part in a desert foods harvest or production event, check out the online events calendars of Desert Harvesters, Bean Tree Farm, and Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum

A friendly reminder: confirm operating days and hours before venturing out to markets or events!
