Locally Made Arts and Crafts added to El Pueblo Farmers’ Market

On May 7th, El Pueblo Farmers’ Market will expand to include local arts and crafts, making it the perfect destination to find that special Mother’s Day gift as well as fresh fruits and vegetables.  Shoppers can find jewelry, paintings, decorative crafts, cookware such as aprons, and personal care products, all created by local artists.

After the initial Mother’s Day event, shoppers will continue to find arts and crafts at El Pueblo Farmers’ Market every 2nd Saturday of the month.

With the summer season quickly approaching in June, El Pueblo Farmers’ Market will also soon be carrying some of its most popular produce including squash, chilies, cucumbers, watermelons and tomatoes.  Shoppers can look forward to a summer full of delicious produce, ongoing events and entertainment at this exciting new market.

All of the Community Food Bank farmers’ markets accept SNAP (food stamps), WIC checks, Arizona Farmers Market Nutrition vouchers, cash, credit and debit.  El Pueblo Farmers’ Market runs every Saturday from 9 AM – 12 PM in the El Pueblo Adult Learning Center Parking lot, on the SW Corner of Irvington Road and South 6th Ave.

The El Pueblo Farmers’ Market is part of the Communities Putting Prevention to Work (CPPW) initiative to prevent or reduce obesity through increased opportunities for improved nutrition and physical activity.  Led by the Pima County Health Department, CPPW is funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
