Tucson Foodie • By Matt Sterner • Posted December 12, 2017

If you’re looking for unique gift ideas this holiday season, it may be better to shop locally.

For its third year, the Heirloom Farmers Markets is offering a few shopping opportunities from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Wednesday, December 13 – Sunday, December 17.

The series of farmers markets has a little something for everyone as it celebrates the flavors from more than 200 farm, food, and art vendors, along with holiday deals, gift ideas, and live music.

On the very last day, featured executive chef David Soloranzo of Lodge on the Desert will be whipping up creative holiday dishes.

So, stray away from buying that boring pack of socks or personalized coffee mug for your loved ones this year, and make it down to one of these holiday farmers markets.
