What this is.

Hi All!
We are entering our 21st year at Roadrunner Park, we are officially the longest consecutively running farmers market in the state of Arizona!  Through our years we have grown, contracted, dealt with many issues as we forged a path for all markets in the valley.  As we have grown, you, our favorite people, have grown as well.  Parents who brought their children in the beginning now bring their grandchildren, kids now bring their own kids, even some of our vendors shopped the market as kids!  
It got us to thinking, now that we are entering our third generation of marketgoers, it's time to start collecting your stories.  We would love to hear about your memories of the market, how attending a market in your youth shaped you, how you view food, farmers, farmers markets, the contributions you have seen the farmers market bring to your community, etc.  
Have Fun!
