On Sunday, Oct. 12, the Farmers' Market at St. Philip's Plaza celebrates its 10th anniversary.
Tucson's first neighborhood farmers market opened in the St. Philip's Plaza with six farmers who were willing to try this new experiment; 200 curious shoppers came. Since then, the farmers market has grown to nearly 50 vendors and 3,000 weekly shoppers.
C’mon down this Sunday from 8 a.m. to noon, and partake in the good vibrations of $1 off market-bucks coupons, the opportunity to win bags of produce and other goodies, and a special tribute to the vendors at St. Philip’s Plaza, located on the southeast corner of River Road and Campbell Avenue.
