The new FarmRaiser session starts this Thursday, April 4 at Concordia Charter School - visit the home page to learn more! And FarmRaiser has expanded - to the Capitol Farmers Market on Thursdays, and the Downtown Chandler Farmers Market on Saturdays - increasing the produce choices available at both these community markets!

Litchfield Elementary School District continues to put local food on the plates of their students' lunches each week. Relatively new customers include Discovery Triangle's Farm Express - https://www.farmexpress.org/farmexpress.html and Best Farmers Market, which participates in Maricopa County Public Health's Healthy Retail initiative.

The Co-op is proud to be sending fresh produce to Pivot Produce in Pima County each week as well. Started by a chef who wanted to support local producers, Pivot is sourcing from southern and central AZ growers to increase volume and variety of fruits and veggies available.

We also wanted to share with you what is available the next two months, from the Co-op's Harvest Calendar, a listing month by month of what is available, designed by graphic artist Ericka Cero Wood. The list shows a pretty amazing diversity of product that is available from Co-op farmers throughout the year!
