Market News:

The new market season is quickly approaching.  Great news may be coming your way depending on where you live.

St. Joseph's Hospital will be running their market on Fridays every other week or twice a month?. all I really know is every payday Friday, St. Joe runs a market from 8 to 12:30 p.m. A large selection of vendors will be selling their wares around the front entrance of the hospital. Tonopah Rob's blue tents are set up next to the valet parking desk.  This market begins November 14, 2014.

Saturday is a very busy day for Tonopah Rob.  Several locations will be running at the same time around the valley of the sun. Tonopah Rob's Vegetable Farm in Tonopah, AZ will open on November 1, 2014 from 8 a.m. to 12 noon.  The farm stand will be overflowing with veggies and fruit. Also, beginning in November, the first Saturday of each month at the farm stand, Tonopah Rob will be hosting the Farm-Vendor market. Joe the Fish Man is bringing in his Alaskan salmon, grass-fed beef, fresh breads, jams, home-made products, skin care,  and much more. Details will be posted closer to the fall grand opening.

Squash Blossom at Tonopah Rob's Vegetable Farm

This is a picture of a squash blossom closing up at the end of the day, it will shrivel and die. It is a male flower and all of its pollen was taken away by honey bees. Those bees moved the pollen from the male to the female blossom and 100 days later in the South Forty, next to the farm stand all sorts of pumpkins will be ready for Halloween and Thanksgiving.

Sun City Grand will have its market on the first Saturday of the month from 9 to 1 p.m.  November to April.   Tonopah Rob will be there selling his Nature Grown all natural fruits and vegetables.

Stock Shop Farmers Market has a day and time change.  The new day will be every Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.  This market will begin November 8, 2014.  Bring your favorite pet, on a leash, please.

Goodyear Community Market begins Saturday October 18, 2014 but Tonopah Rob will not be attending until November 8, 2014.  Market time is:  9 to 1 p.m. Every Saturday at the park.  It's a smaller market with a great family oriented atmosphere.

Every Sunday beginning November 2, 2014, the Anthem Farmers Market will begin and continue every Sunday thereafter and the times are 9 to 1 p.m. The Anthem Farmers Market is held at the Veteran's Park.  There are several lakes to practice your fly-fishing, tennis courts, a cute train ride around the park for both little and big people is very popular and fun to do and the vendors line the sidewalks with so many great products too.

Tucson's Farmers Market is a weekly market open all year-long, it rarely closes for anything.  Sunday's from 8 to noon in the St. Phillips Plaza.  This is a really cool location and market.  Many wonderful vendors with delicious high quality products decorate the meandering walk ways. You should come to Tucson and check it out, it is NICE!!!!!!!

On the second Sunday of each month, Creative Living Fellowship and Tonopah Rob team up for a quaint little market on the patio.  It's a beautiful location. Last season Tonopah Rob and the Honey Lady sold their wares together on the meet and greet patio.  The market hours are from 9:30 to 1 p.m.  You are welcome to stay and hear a wonderful service provided by Rev.
