Tucson's Everyday People: The 17th Street Farmer

Posted By on Mon, Jun 14, 2010 at 4:15 PM

Tom Taylor, the manager of The 17th Street Market on 17th Street and Park Avenue, has been involved in the grocery business for most of his life, having done practically every job imaginable in a grocery store. After managing a number of supermarkets of numerous chains, he has found himself at the 17th Street Market. He has found himself a place where the atmosphere and fellow employees fit his personality, with the owners of the store agreeing to let him use his own managing style to help the business grow. The market has several separate departments, including produce, fish, house wares, and music. The music department, however, is the most intricate, including a band and a professional-grade recording studio.

Meet Tom Taylor in this multimedia slideshow by UA School of Journalism student Michael Palazzolo.
