The popular Santa Cruz River Farmers’ Market on the corner of Speedway and Riverview boulevards is relocating next month to the Mercado San Agustin at 100 S. Avenida del Convento.
Organizers say the market needs more room due to a steady increase in vendors and visitors, and that the Mercado San Agustin offers more shelter from the elements.
I always marveled at how this farmers' market brought that barren gravel lot on Speedway Boulevard to life once a week. It will surely be a wonderful addition to the numerous things going on at Mercado San Agustin.
The market will officially open at the new location on Thursday, June 16.
