Mercado Weekly Walks & The Santa Cruz River Farmers’ Market
March 5, 2020 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm
*Market hours are from 4:00 – 7:00 PM May – Sept
3:00 – 6:00 PM Oct – Apr
Join your community for a BEYOND guided walk that departs at 5:00 PM as we get to know each other better and meander through Tucson’s west side neighborhoods and historic birthplace over to the amazing Mission Garden (at least once a month) … and Beyond!
Check out the local favorite Santa Cruz River Farmers’ Market hosted by the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona that feels more like a block party than a place to buy green things. Live music and cooking demos, seed exchanges and gardening classes engage the community with all things ultimately edible. It’s not the biggest, fanciest market in town, but it has won the hearts of its community. Feel free to check out Mercado’s wide variety of merchants and eateries; the Mercado District is sure to have something for everyone.
This weekly Walk is a good time to sign up and get your Beyond Challenge Card completed and after your 5th walk, earn a $5 token to spend at the Santa Cruz River Farmers’ Market!
BEYOND encourages community members to adopt a comprehensive approach to their physical and mental health through four pillars of health and wellness:
Get outside and explore nature;
Make good nutritional choices;
Engage in enjoyable physical movement;
Strengthen community connections.
