To many Tucsonans, nothing says “the holidays” like walking around the St. Phillip’s Farmers’ market on Saturday and Sunday mornings. The crisp, sunny beautiful temperatures are complemented naturally by the glorious aroma of freshly brewed coffee, a variety of delicious balsamics and olive oils, hot from the oven breads and pastries, local honey and the freshest, organic local produce.
The architecture and ambiance of the plaza are ideal elements in which to savor all the delicious tastings, experience local art and to take treasured items back home to enjoy with loved ones for the holidays and always.
Tim Keene, market manager of FoodInRoot, says, “Winter visitors are looking for quality organic, locally-grown produce, meats, eggs and prepared foods that represent the best of southern Arizona. By providing information on how to eat better, take can better care of themselves. We also create an opportunity to meet the people that grow the food, care for the animals and make and prepare great local food and personal care products.
