Dates set for February, March and April events with 50-plus vendors serving Midtown patrons on their lunch breaks
U-Haul International invites the public and neighboring Phoenix businesses to the monthly Midtown Farmers Market, now in its second year of offering a vibrant shopping setting while supporting Arizona’s farmers and entrepreneurs.
Dates and times are posted for the February, March and April events.
More than 50 local vendors will be stationed on the U-Haul Midtown Campus along Roanoke Avenue, just east of Central Avenue. Vendors will feature sizzling lunch specials, fresh produce, handcrafted sauces, Arizona-made goods and much more.
U-Haul® organized the farmers market in 2018 after recognizing that Midtown Phoenix lacked such an event. The farmers market aligns with the Company’s endorsement of healthy living and sustainable practices.
“The Midtown Farmers Market hosted by U-Haul has returned for its second year, and we are happy to welcome our neighbors in the name of local food and healthy living,” stated Monique Wantland, U-Haul wellness program manager. “It offers people the luxury of completing their weekly grocery shopping on their lunch breaks.”
