Tucson’s largest year-round farmers market is located along the bike trail known as The Loop and nestled in the Southeast corner of Rillito Park. The Rillito Park Farmers Market hosts over 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. The 3 shade pavilions (5,000 sq.ft. of shopping shade), center entertainment circle, public restrooms, and additional pads boasts space for over 80 small businesses. 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. This flagship market has become one of Tucson’s special gastronomy destinations for the community.
