SUPERIOR WILL SOON HAVE A FARMERS’ MARKET AT THE FOOD COURT!
As part of the Copper Corridor Economic Development Coalition’s Food Hub project, a seasonal, locally-focused Farmers’ Market will be launched on June 14th at Superior’s newly-renovated Food Court!
This season’s Market will be held on the 2nd and 4th Fridays, June thru Sept, 4pm-8pm.
The Food Hub was created via a grant from the USDA for local Copper Corridor independent farmers and food producers to create marketplaces and opportunities for selling their wares and to educate about healthy food. More info re: the Food Hub:www.goodfoodfindsaz.com.
All local independent farmers, home gardeners, and food producers are invited and encouraged to become a vendor in this Superior marketplace as well as the Farmer’s Market in Dudleyville (1st and 3rd Fridays, 9-Noon).
This retail venue is the perfect revenue generator for small-scale farmers, growers and food producers. If needed, our local Food Hub team can assist you in getting your goods ready for market. The Superior Community Kitchen (SCK) at the Senior Center can be rented as a certified commercial kitchen to prepare items such as jams, jellies, salsas, tamales, and other prepared foods.
A SCK handbook with use guidelines is available at Town Hall.
Come join us as part of the Superior Desert Foods Collective to help the Food Hub set roots in our community, and grow to supply an abundance of healthy food to the entire Copper Corridor!

An Informational Meeting for interested parties will be held May 30th @ 5:00, Besich Park. Market Manager Holly Brantley will be on site to answer questions and accept applications.
