Located in the heart of Tucson’s East side at the north entrance of the expansive 173-acre Morris K. Udall Park, the Friday Udall Park Farmers Market is an ideal place for locals to connect with their farmers and food producers each week.
The Udall Park Farmers Market brings the best of local food to Tucson’s east side, with over 20 vendors offering local and organic produce, farm-fresh eggs, Arizona grass-fed beef, local honey, fresh locally roasted coffee, baked goods, salsa, tortillas, freshly roasted vegetables, pet products, soaps and more. The Friday morning farmers market is clearly visible from Tanque Verde road and can be easily accessed by both the SunTran and Udall Transit system. The Udall Park Farmers Market welcomes SNAP/EBT customers and encourages them to participate in Double Up Food Bucks AZ. This accessible and inclusive family-friendly market is the perfect place to enjoy fresh food and one of Tucson’s greatest parks.
Thanks to partnerships with the City of Tucson’s Parks and Recreation, Councilperson Paul Cunningham, and Trail Dust Town, HeirloomFM has run a Friday morning market for over ten years. The east side market started briefly at Udall Park in 2009 before moving to Jesse Owens Park and then later to Trail Dust Town – a charming courtyard with an ‘Old West’ feel. In late 2019 the Bureau of Land Management completed the transfer of the land on which Udall Park sits to the City of Tucson. As a result, state law now permits HeirloomFM to return their Friday morning farmers market to its original location at Morris K. Udall Park.
“One of the reasons I wanted the city to get full use of the park from the Bureau of Land Management is so that we could bring back the Farmer’s Market,” said Ward 2 Council member Paul Cunningham. “People in the area were always asking about it. It will be a great asset for Udall Park and the east side in general.”
