Bicycle Tune Up at SCR Farmers Market
New fall hours are 3 to 6 p.m. Tucson’s new temps lends itself to perfect bicycle weather. Today at the Santa Cruz River Farmers Market, the El Grupo Youth Cycling Club will offer free bike tune ups, changing a tire demos, and bicycle maps from 4 to 6 p.m.
Music at Broadway Village Farmers Market
The nationally touring, songwriting duo of Coco and Lafe will perform live at Broadway Village this Friday, October 9, between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. The Vermont-rooted folksingers, Coco Kallis and Lafe Dutton, are making the stop in the Old Pueblo on their nationwide tour of farmers markets. The duo has appeared twice on Conan O’Brien. The performance is free and open to the public.
Friday’s Farmers Market at Broadway Village is Tucson’s only indoor/outdoor air-conditioned farmer’s market, where more than 40 independent Arizona vendors showcase their products, from locally-grown organic produce and grass-fed beef, to baked goods and indigenous plants. Imported certified organic fruits and vegetables, and fresh seafood are also offered.
New fall hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Friday. Broadway Village is located at the southwest corner of Broadway Boulevard and Country Club. Become a fan on Facebook .
Tucson Eat Yourself
The event is really Tucson Meet Yourself but ‘fess up, you all go for the food. Sure, there is plenty of ethnic culture in the form of music, dance, crafts, native costumes, but the magnet is the food presentation and aromas wafting through the air. Eat foods from around the world – Jamaica, Korea, Lao, Hungary, Filipino, Costa Rico, Poland, Persia, and dozens more. It all happens October 9-11 in and around the main library plaza in downtown Tucson.
