Tucson, AZ, serves up the best of its farmers' fare at the Santa Cruz River Farmers Market. Recognized by Eating Well magazine as one of “America's Top 10 Farmers Markets,” the market features farmer staples like fresh fruits and produce, as well as baked goods, flowers and canned goods. But the River Market goes above and beyond to benefit low-income families by accepting food stamp benefits as payment. The market also plays host to various events like Earth Day Sonoran Supermarket, which seeks to educate community members about healthy foods that grow in the Sonora Desert, and Eggstravaganza, an event that teaches attendees about the benefits of raising their own chickens.
