Nestled at the base of the Catalina Mountains’ Pusch Ridge along the Northwest Oracle Road corridor is Steam Pump Ranch where the Oro Valley Farmers Market sets up every Saturday morning in the early dawn hours. Since 2004, the Oro Valley Farmers Market has become a meaningful community event in support of local farms, ranches and small food purveyors. Friends, families and neighbors stroll the grounds where historic preservation of the buildings, farming artifacts and heritage gardens are showcased. The Oro Valley Farmers Market operates 52 weeks of the year offering the seasonal bounty from the surrounding farming communities as well as supporting special events at the Ranch including Second Saturdays at Steam Pump Ranch and its fun-filled activities. Visitors will find local fruits and vegetables as well as ranch-fed beef, pork and farm fresh eggs carrying on the ranch’s agricultural traditions.
