***SHOP LOCAL at the market this holiday season!***
It takes community support to keep small, local businesses running !
Thank you for supporting our local farmers and vendors! Buying produce and other products from a local vendor is a better choice than going to a store chain. We hope that you stop at the market first before heading to the store to pick up your items. Shopping at local markets like Momma’s Organic Market, will directly support these businesses and the money is going right back into your community. Did you know that when you shop locally, about $45 out of every $100 spent will stay in the state compared to only around $13 if it is spend at a national chain. That is a big deal when it comes to jobs and the local economy. Thank you for appreciating the businesses that come out each week to provide you with great products! Hope to see you at the market!
EVERY SATURDAY ~ now through the end of April:
Peoria Farmer's Market at Park West (9a-2p)
9744 W. Northern Ave, Peoria, AZ 85345
