Southwest Valley farmers’ market enthusiasts who had to travel farther for their weekly produce, vendor and food truck fix when the Peoria Farmers’ Market at Park West moved to Arrowhead Towne Center this summer are in luck; Get Local Arizona Events is bringing a night market to the shopping center Wednesday, Oct. 7.
“We’re thrilled to work with Get Local Arizona Events to bring the Peoria Night Market to Park West,” the shopping center’s business development manager Kelly Price said in a release. “The weekly event is a great way for neighbors and families to get out, do some shopping, support local businesses, and enjoy some entertainment and activities.”
Vendors will vary from week to week, but Southwest Valley vendors including Hope’s Artisan Bread of Litchfield Park, Heart 2 Home - Elderberry of Avondale, Saucy Luke’s Craft BBQ and Sun Tan Honey Farm of Buckeye will be at Wednesday’s market along with a host of others from around the Valley.
Food trucks — including Raimondo’s Catering, Lulu’s Sorbetto, Switch Beignets and Cuties Lemonade — will be on site with food and beverage for purchase. The market also will feature live music by Henry Thompson and multiple kids’ activities.
The Peoria Night Market is free to attend, and vendors and food trucks accept cash and card. Weekly vendor lists are available at getlocalarizonaevents.com/WednesdayMarket or on the Momma’s Organic Market Facebook page.
