Heirloom Farmers Markets Teams Up with Local Chefs Every Sunday

Chef at the Market! is in full swing at Heirloom Farmers Markets. Every Sunday, chefs from Tucson’s top restaurants will be at the new Rillito Park Farmers Market offering yummy food made with local produce and products.

“Our new farmers market space allows us to connect with local restaurants to provide them with a great chance to promote their food,” said Heirloom Farmers Market Executive Director, Manish Shah. “It also gives the chefs an opportunity to see what’s available at the markets for them to use in their kitchens. And of course the customers love how they can taste so many different ways market ingredients can be prepared.”

This new partnership is a great way to get fresh ideas for your own home cooking adventures, as well as a chance to explore many of the delicious restaurants around our sprawling desert town.

Look for a different chef each week.

Heirloom Farmers Markets operate three urban, green markets that are open 52 weeks a year. These markets provide a direct connection to more than 90 vendors with deep roots in Southwest Arizona including farms, nurseries, bakeries, meat and seafood providers, cheese makers, specialty foods producers and many more. The markets are open from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the summer months and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. the balance of the year. For more information visit the website at www.heirloomfm.com
