Growth Potential

West side, represent.

In 2008, sisters-in-law Christa Esquibel and Emy Porter saw the need for "fresh and local" west of I-17, so they took a good idea and grew it. What started as hocking eggs in a front yard has become the monthly Momma's Organic Market, featuring 60 to 100 vendors such as Pinnacle Gardens, Crooked Sky Farms, the Barn Goddess, One Step Beyond catering, Molly's Tamales, and more handmade goods than you can shake a dreamcatcher at. Momma says to hang around all day for story time, a bounce house, face painting, live music, and the Remington Deaf Ranch petting zoo.

Saturday is the last chance to shop the monthly farmers' market before it closes for the summer (a smaller version of the market is open Thursday evenings from 4 to 7 p.m. through April).
