AZ Gives Day
We’re grateful for our resilient local farmers, food vendors, and community! THANK YOU.
Arizona Gives Day, April 5th, is a day of online giving to support local nonprofit organizations. The farmers markets offer vital access to local nutritious food, benefitting our local community, farmers, and food vendors. Save the date to donate to your local farmers markets! You can also click here to make your tax-deductible gift to Heirloom Farmers Markets today. Your tax-deductible donation benefits our mission to increase vital access to the community for local nutritious food, and provide economic opportunity for many local family-owned small businesses. Food access and economic opportunity are both threatened by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has led to significantly increased food insecurity in our community. During this time of uncertainty, farmers markets serve a crucial role in supporting resilient local food systems.
Your donatioN, regardless of amount, FUels our mission and directly supports:
- Access to local healthy food for customers with SNAP/EBT, and FMNP WIC/Senior food benefits who rely on their purchases to be matched with a dollar-for-dollar program. In 2021 distributed over $140,000 in SNAP dollars this year that customers can spend with our local food producers in addition to a matching amount for Double Up Food Bucks spent directly with our farmers on Arizona-grown produce.
- Our mission to keep Southern Arizona growing food. The 30+ farms in our market system sell directly to the community, allowing farms to keep more of their profits.
- The infrastructure for more than 250 local small businesses that otherwise may not survive. At our markets, producers sell directly to customers, and you can truly know your farmer!
