Tucson Farmers Market is brought to Maynard’s Market & Kitchen every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. located at 400 N. Toole Ave.

Vendors come bearing delicious treats and fresh produce ranging from goat milk soap, homemade salsa, organically grown vegetables, herbs and spices and much more.

The farmers market is something I had never been to but had always wanted to go. Although temperatures were over 100 degrees, I toughed out the heat and made my way over. I wanted to see what was so great about it!

Vendors from Ironwood Ranch Soap, Arizona Sprouthouse, Richcrest Farms, Cirle Key Farms, Wild Rose Coffee, Small Planet Bakery to a number of other vendors. While first entering the market, my eye was caught by some beautiful flowers from the River Roads Garden.

I found a very beautiful, handcrafted dream catcher that I ended up purchasing made from all natural materials found in the desert. Not only were all the items beautiful and delicious, everything was reasonably priced as well.

I took some photos of the different vendors to show all the different items sold at the farmer’s market.

After I walked around a bit and enjoyed some delicious free samples from Small Planet Bakery, I walked across the street to Cup Café at Hotel Congress and enjoyed some breakfast. It was a very successful first trip to the farmer’s market and needless to say, I will definitely be back! Not only it is a great way to help support local vendors in the Tucson community but it is also a great way to spend some time with family and friends on a nice Saturday morning.
