We are excited to announce the Grand Opening of our Uptown Growers Market on September 26th!
Uptown Growers Market is an exciting new extension of the Uptown Farmers Market. We have partnered with Greg Peterson of The Urban Farm, Kari Spencer of The Micro Farm Project and Jim Dennis of Farm Phoenix to offer our community a place to celebrate gardens and learn how to grow your own food.
Our intent is for the Uptown Growers Market to act as a “Pop-up Nursery”. With the closing of our beloved neighborhood Baker Nursery, we have found that many gardeners are in need of a place to educate, and many customers don’t really know where to turn for growing and gardening advice.
Our Uptown Growers Market will be open Saturdays and will operate seasonally, with our first session running September 5 through October 31, 2015, and our second second season running from February 6th through April 30th, 2016.
The Growers Market will run directly alongside the Farmers Market on Saturdays while in Season: Year-round, Rain or Shine. 9a-1p October – April 8a-12p May – September
The Uptown Growers Market will be here to help you with all aspects of your urban farm and garden cultivation!
