Donna DeConcini gave us a call today to let us know about her newish farmers’ market that’s held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., every Friday and Saturday, at 8995 E. Tanque Verde Road, on the northwest corner of Catalina Highway and Tanque Verde Road.

Items sold at the organic market include produce grown on an ultra-small scale in backyard gardens (salad greens, eggplant, spinach, sweet peas, beets and onions), chili rellenos, tamales, meat from San Rafael Valley Natural Grass-Fed Beef, eggs, organic dog biscuits, spice blends from the Doc Kendrick Spice Company, goods made or harvested by the Iskashitaa Refugee Harvesting Network and wares crafted by local artisans. Green chilis, garlic and bell peppers are also roasted regularly.

The market holds a rummage sale the last Saturday of every month, where local groups are welcome to sell goods or collectibles. Call 982-2645 for more information.
