Tucson’s largest year-round farmers market is located in the Southeast corner of Rillito Park, along the bike trail known as The Loop. The Rillito Park Farmers Market hosts farmers, ranchers and artisan food purveyors featuring local produce and fresh cuisine. After years of marketing at a local shopping center, Heirloom Farmers Markets worked in collaboration with Pima County and the Rillito Park Foundation to build this state-of-the-art, permanent farmers market space. This flagship market has now become one of Tucson’s special gastronomy destinations for the community. The four shade pavilions (5,000 sq.ft. of shopping shade), center entertainment circle, and public restrooms provide space for a variety of small businesses. However, we are currently functioning at half capacity due to Covid-19.
Customers can enjoy Heirloom’s weekly helping of food literacy Taste of the Market sponsored by Arizona Complete Health, just look for the bright orange tent. Plus, Rillito Park offers quarterly chef demonstrations, seasonal food events, bicycle-friendly events, and market music. **Please note: Taste of the Market, and all events, festivals, and entertainment are postponed until further notice.**
