New Marana Farmers’ Market Opens Next Tuesday

Posted By on Fri, Sep 2, 2011 at 10:00 AM

The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona is moving the farmers’ market at the Marana Heritage Farm to the new Marana Health Center at 13395 N. Marana Main St.

The move is in response to greater demand for a more central location, which is music to these ears. It seems like one of the only ways out of the obesity epidemic plaguing this and other countries is making more healthy stuff available to people. I’m no expert or local-food nut, but I am from small-town America, and it can be difficult to eat well when there’s little but processed foods and Super Walmarts to choose from.

The new market takes place from 3 to 6 p.m., every Tuesday. Melons, apples, pears, pomegranates, squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, basil, peppers, eggplant, okra, onions, garlic, sweet potatoes and much more is in season right now.
