11/23 GRAND OPENING – Tucson’s 1st Food Pavilion
Grand Opening of Tucson’s First Permanent Farmers Market Pavilion at Rillito Regional Park
Heirloom Farmers Markets is thrilled to announce the grand opening of Tucson’s first permanent farmers market pavilion on Sunday, November 23 at 10:00am.
The event will feature live music and remarks by Heirloom Farmers Markets co-executive directors Manish Shah and Roxanne Garcia, along with Pima County supervisor Sharon Bronson. Local dignitaries and influential Tucsonans will be among the estimated 2,000 patrons shopping 80+ of Baja Arizona’s finest local food vendors.
A joint endeavor between Heirloom Farmers Markets and Pima County, the pavilion is based on a shared vision for a year-round weekend farmers market that will enhance the local food economy. Designed to be an anchor destination in the community, the pavilion will showcase the bounty of food in the region and directly support the economic vitality of local food producers and proprietors.
The pavilion is conveniently located in the southeast corner of the park, just off The Loop path, providing a public space where people can shop, stroll, eat, and be entertained. Measuring the length of one city block, the pavilion is comprised of three 110-foot-long ramadas shading a 12-foot-wide paved path that will be flanked by vendors.
“It’s over 600 feet of flavor,” commented Heirloom co-executive director, Manish Shah. “You will taste the best of the best of local food.”
Hope to see you there!
