A new farmers' market is opening at a one of Tucson's local loves, The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.
On Saturdays, the market will take over the new outdoors patio area to the east of the main building. Hours are 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Local food farmers and gardeners will be featured including local honey from the Tucson Honey Company; produce from Breckenfeld Family Growers and Local Roots Hydroponics; raw macaroons and crackers from R’s Raw Kitchen; eggs from ZenHens; lasagna from Lasagna and More; canned goods from Iskashitaa Refugee Network; spices from Spice Smith/Solar Cooking; raw ice cream from Tonic Sustenance; fair trade/organic coffee from Café Aqui; plants from Dream Flower Garden; cotton candy from Fluff It Up; power bars from PHOD; salsa from Chilttepica Salsa; and seed bombs from Green Fire Arizona, along with organic produce, baked goods and cold salads from Food Conspiracy Co-op. Topping it off, there's free organic popcorn available for all attendees!
Also each week, along with all the great local food being sold, they will offer live music, food demonstrations, short films, and other activities. There will also be three tables for other non-profits to use, free of charge, to promote their organizations.
