Brookfield Residential’s Alamar, in Avondale, is celebrating its one-year anniversary with a public Farmers Market celebration next month.
The market will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 9 at Alamar’s Hay Moon Park, 11750 W. Broadway Road, Avondale. The event will run in conjunction with the city of Avondale, which is celebrating its own 75th anniversary.
The free family-friendly market will feature live music, entertainers, food trucks and beverage carts, carnival games, interactive exhibits and demonstrations, and public outreach booths from local partners. A selection of vendors will be selling organic produce, popular products and arts and crafts.
In addition to the public activities, the Alamar Community Association will be hosting VIP experiences for Alamar residents within Alamar’s Community Pool area.
“This is going to be an event to remember, and one that hits at the heart of what it means to be an Avondale resident,” Brookfield Residential Vice President of Marketing Garilyn Bourgeois stated in a news release. “We hope to capture the spirit of Avondale’s history, while celebrating Alamar’s early success, guided by the community’s focus on contemporary agrarian heritage.”
Brookfield Residential and the city of Avondale worked together to break ground on a new 40-acre regional park known as Alamar Park, which is expected to open to the public in early 2022. Once open, the park will feature baseball/softball and multi-use fields, tennis and pickleball courts, playgrounds, a lake, splash pad, amphitheater, dog park and more.
“Much of the growth that is happening in Avondale right now is taking place at Alamar,” Avondale Mayor Kenn Weise stated. “We are excited to see this quality development continue to expand, and we look forward to celebrating its first anniversary.”
Brookfield has also donated a 21-acre elementary school site to Avondale’s Littleton Elementary School District to build a K-8 school, which is scheduled to open in the near future.
Alamar is the largest masterplan to open in the Valley since 2013 and will feature a total 3,695 homes once all phases are complete. The first phase of 461 homes are nearly sold out, and the next phase of 346 homes are expected to open to the public later this year.
