18. Visit a Farmer’s Market

When you combine locally grown produce, artisans selling their creations, and food vendors all in one place, you’ve got yourself some farmers market bliss.

With a handful of farmers markets around the Tucson area, you’ll likely be able to squeeze one during your trip.

Here are 3 farmers markets that are closest to town, and are easy to work into your sightseeing schedule:

  • Rillito Park: Makes a good stop if you’re headed up to Catalina State Park, Tohono Chul, or over to Sabino Canyon.

  • Oro Valley: Stop here on your way to Catalina State Park.

  • Rincon Valley: Make a stop here on your drive down to Colossal Cave.

We visited the market in Rincon Valley on our way to the Colossal Cave, and while not huge, it was a nice stop to browse some local artists’ work and nibble on kettle corn!

Hours: All the markets listed above have the same hours.

  • Winter Hours (Oct. – Mar.): Saturdays, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

  • Summer Hours (Apr. – Sept.): Saturdays, 8 a.m -12 p.m.

These farmers markets are all put together by an organization called Heirloom Farmers Markets, and you can find more info here.
