Ag To Art Farmers Market

Farmers markets are a perfect fit in Yuma’s warm and sunny climate. Starting your day out with a quick visit to get fresh bread or veggies for dinner, or strolling between the booths in a more leisurely way, it’s all up to you. Fresh citrus, fruits and vegetables, baked goods, spices, dried fruits, jewelry and unique clothing and crafts are the hallmarks of Yuma’s markets.

The Tuesday, Saturday. and Sunday markets are put on by Crossroads Mission, and the proceeds go to assist with their programs to help the homeless. You can find the market at Yuma Palms Regional Center on Saturdays and Sundays, while it is set up along Main Street in downtown on Tuesdays. Check their website for when the markets begin for the season.

Visit Yuma created a once-monthly market that brings together both the best of agriculture and art! Farmers and local producers bring in their fresh bread, local honey, fresh eggs, melons, Medjool dates, citrus and vegetables from right around Yuma. The art and artists are all “locally sourced” as well, including visual arts, soaps, jewelry and natural products which come from this area. Check here for market dates and information.
