Enjoy a festive Sunday at Rillito Park Farmers Market with live music, a children's puppet show, and real local food!

Heirloom Farmers Markets joins markets across the country in celebrating National Farmers Market Week from August 6 – 13. We’ll be culminating the end of the National Farmers Market Week on Sunday, August 13th at the Rillito Park Farmers Market from 8am to 12noon. We have live music from Rudy Cortes and free farmers market swag (limited quantities). PLUS, a special children's puppet show about farmers markets from Hansel & Friends (Showtimes: 9a & 10a)!

As demand for local food continues to grow, so too have the opportunities for America’s farmers to market fresh food directly to the consumer. According to statistics recently released by United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), farmers markets and farm stands account for roughly $2 billion of the $3 billion that Americans spend annually on farm-direct products. This revenue, in turn, supports the livelihoods of more than 165,000 mostly small and mid-sized farms and ranches.

“Farmers markets play a vital role not just in generating real income for farmers, but in forming healthy, prosperous food systems,” says Jen Cheek, Executive Director of the Farmers Market Coalition. “By providing the opportunity for farmers to connect directly with consumers, markets serve as education centers. Vendors are teaching customers about agriculture and sharing recipes and new foods with their neighbors. Markets are making people and communities stronger and healthier.“

Thank you to our customers for their continued support and for the 200+ vendors in our system!
