I just did my first farmer’s market gig – Santa Cruz Farmer’s Market – formerly close to Speedway and Grand and now at the Mercado de San Agustin, on Congress just west of I-10. A really mellow gig, in a good way! My favorite part was the kids’ reactions. Little babies lighting up at the sounds of music! Children are so into music in a way that so many of us outgrow.
Whoa, and Google tells me: Eating Well magazine has recognized Tucson’s Santa Cruz River Farmers’ Market as one of “America’s Top 10 Farmers’ Markets.” http://www.tucsoncitizen.com/daily/frontpage/57651.php
I like going out to farmer’s markets anyway and frequent this one quite a bit. So it was cool to be there early and see how full and luscious all the tables are and hear them ring the “open for business” bell. I’m usually late getting there and have to scramble for the last bits of good veggies that might be available.
We had so much fun I’m doing it again:
Thursday, June 23rd
Mercado de San Agustin
just off Congress and just west of the I-10
I’ll be doing two sets somewhere between 4pm – 7pm
Bring some reusable bags and get some great deal!
