The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona and Marana Health Center are partnering to open a new Marana Farmers’ Market!  The new market will be open Tuesdays from 3-6 PM, starting on September 6th, at the new Marana Health Center (13395 N. Marana Main Street).  The weekly market will feature fresh, local fruits and vegetables, eggs, honey and garden seedlings.

The Community Food Bank has operated the Marana Farm Stand on Mondays at the Marana Heritage Farm since 2008, but increased demand for local produce has led CFB staff to consider more central locations in Marana.  The last day of the Marana Farm Stand at the Marana Heritage Farm will be on Monday, August 29th, 3-6 PM.

Local summer produce selections at the Marana Farmers’ Market will include melons, apples, pears, pomegranates, squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, basil, peppers, eggplant, okra, onions, garlic, sweet potatoes and more!

The Marana Farmers’ Market accepts credit and debit cards, SNAP (food stamps), cash, Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Cash Value Vouchers for fruits and vegetables, and AZ Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program coupons for WIC and senior Food Plus participants.
