By Lindsay Hansen - Monday Sep 26, 2022
Momma’s Organic Market/Get Local Arizona Events will kick off their 15th season on Oct. 1 at multiple West Valley locations. They will be serving West Valley residents at three locations: Arrowhead Towne Center, Cabela’s in Glendale and Sun City Festival Farmer’s Market. In addition, they plan to continue Food Truck Friday West in Glendale.

“We’re so excited to be partnering with both Arrowhead mall and Cabela’s again,” said Christa Esquibel, owner of the market’s parent company, Get Local Arizona Events. “We’re so grateful to these large businesses who help support local small businesses at the market each week. Our markets have evolved over the past 15 years, and we couldn’t have done it without the continued support from local farmers, fresh foods, food trucks and countless other incredible small businesses in the West Valley. We’re looking forward to a great season!”

The Saturday market is at Arrowhead Towne Center, located at 7780 W. Arrowhead Towne Center, in the upper level Dillard’s parking lot. The market will run every Saturday October-April from 9 a.m. to 1p.m. and features over 125 vendors each week. (This market is operating in September from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the same location,)
