Arivaca is a small quiet border town in the middle of nowhere but at the center of everything. Struggling to maintain a normal rural lifestyle while recovering form the preverbal border war zone, Arivaca has its hidden gems. Contrary to mainstream media sensationalism the people of Arivaca have a unique comfort and acceptance of multicultural and quiet varied political views. Magnified in the various community projects Arivaca locals are always ready to support area functions with a warm and friendly welcome to visitors
The small farmers market that grew over the years from two women sitting under a tree selling their eggs and cheese is now grown to a budding farmers market called “Marian’s Market.” Open from 9am to noon every Saturday the local produced products and organic produce are worth the drive. For more information visit the Arivaca on line news and directory
Nestled in the hills of the high Sonornan Desert Arivaca has a lot to offer. Before the market as you are coming into Arivaca is the Cafe Aribac for a great cup of coffee or breakfast. After visiting the market, try the Arivaca Artist Co op and The Cactus Rose Gallery or a cold one at the Cantina. Opening soon is Sweet Peas Cuisine, Cafe and Catering, offering 3 great meals a day. The Arivaca Mercantile will surprise you and the drive to Arivaca Lake or through the 117,000 acres of the Buenos Aries Wildlife Refuge is a rewarding experience. Area Links
