Tucson: New Rosemont neighborhood market
The first Rosemont West Neighborhood Market happens this Saturday, November 12 from 10 am to 2 pm at the Rosemont Community Church located at 5005 E. Winsett Street. Not to be confused with Rosemont Copper, the neighborhood has about 800 homes with boundaries of Broadway Blvd to the north, Swan Rd to the west, Eastland St to the south, and Rosemont Dr to the east.
The market includes collectibles and antiques, lamp work glass beads, art deco, Navajo rug weavers, local produce from High Energy Agriculture, locally-made products, live entertainment (French Bossanova), and food — Sonoran hot dogs, Mexican sweets, and Kettle Korn.
High Energy Agriculture hopes that interested shoppers will want to start a CSA (community supported agriculture) or a food buying club. I have to check out the latter as I’m not familiar with that concept. If anyone has experience with it, please post a comment.
Like Tucson neighborhoods, the market will have an eclectic appeal. The event is hosted by the Rosemont West Neighborhood Association and the Rosemont Community Church.
Their goal is to have the neighborhood market once a month. It’s a great idea — I hope it soars.
