Find Unique Holiday Gifts at the Santa Cruz River Farmers’ Market

This holiday season Santa Cruz River Farmers’ Market shoppers will find a variety of distinctively southwest gifts to choose from at the weekly Thursday market.  Healthy and locally made gifts include raw mesquite honey, prickly pear jams, mesquite flour mixes, Sonoran plants and more.  If market goers are looking for a more personal gift, on December 15th they will also have the opportunity to make holiday ornaments with their children at the arts and crafts table.  These family friendly craft activities are free and will be located alongside live music and a comfortable grassy courtyard.  Those shoppers preparing for an upcoming holiday meal can also expect to find a great selection of sweet potatoes, green onions, apples, early citrus and a variety of leafy greens and winter squash.

All of the Community Food Bank Farmers’ Markets accept SNAP (food stamps), WIC checks, Arizona Farmers Market Nutrition vouchers, cash, credit and debit cards.  The Santa Cruz River Farmers’ Market runs every Thursday from 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM at El Mercado San Agustin, located at 100.
