Farmer’s market slated to open in Tempe

File-This file photo combo of file images shows U.S. presidential candidates Donald Trump, left, and Hillary Clinton. Trump wants to spur more job creation by reducing regulations and cutting taxes to encourage businesses to expand and hire more. He also says badly negotiated free trade agreements have cost millions of manufacturing jobs. He promises to bring those jobs back by renegotiating the NAFTA agreement with Canada and Mexico, withdrawing from a proposed Pacific trade pact with 11 other nations, and pushing China to let its currency float freely on international markets. Clinton has promised to spend $275 billion upgrading roads, tunnels and modern infrastructure such as broadband Internet, to create more construction and engineering jobs. Trump has said in interviews he would spend twice as much. (AP Photo/Mary Altaffer, Chuck Burton, File)

TEMPE, Ariz. — There’s a new place to get fresh food for many in the southeast Valley. The Tempe Community Market is on the brink of opening.

“The idea is to support local farmers, growers and micro-businesses,” said Cindy Gentry, the Encore Fellow Market Manager with Tempe Community Action Committee. “Bring community together around opportunities to live sustainably, access healthy food and contribute to the local economy.”

The new market will be open every Sunday, starting March 2, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“This idea is it will be an affordable venue, and an educational venue,” she said. “So we’ll have information and people there doing classes and demonstrations on how to grow your own.”

It’s located under the Loop 202 bridge at 620 N. Mill Avenue.
