Hey, Tempe! You're getting a new farmers market.
On Saturday, October 10 the Clark Park Farmers Market will debut at Clark Park Community Garden located at 1730 S. Roosevelt Street in Tempe. The weekly market will feature about 20 vendors selling local produce, handmade crafts by local artists, and prepared food and coffee and will run each Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon.
Here's a list of participating vendors so far:
· Maya’s Farm
· Double Blessings Goat Products
· Absolutely Delightful AZ Honey
· Heavenly Desserts
· Doc’s Artisan Ice Creams
· De Cio Pasta
· Ceramics by Judith
· Bike Saviours
· King Coffee
· Blood Brothers Bloody Mary Mix
· Four Dogs Bakery
· Abby Lee Farms
The market is being organized by Tempe neighborhood volunteers and Tempe Community Action Agency. You may remember the TCAA also organized the short-lived Tempe Community Market. That market only lasted about 9 months before shutting down last September; the organizers said the location under the Mil Avenue bridge "limited [the market's] schedule and proved not ideal to vendors."
