Lots of produce for little dough

Metro Tech High School hosts the Market on the Move from 8 to 11 a.m. the second Saturday of the month in its east parking lot, located off 19th Avenue just north of Thomas Road.

Market on the Move provides a farmers’ market atmosphere at various locations throughout Metro Phoenix where partners and supporters of this program can come on a regular basis and make a $10 minimum donation to receive up to 60 pounds of produce. There is no need to pre-register or pre-donate on line. Donations can be made at the host site.

Every year, members of The 3000 Club, supporters and volunteers help rescue approximately 30 million pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables that was destined for landfills. This produce may be slightly blemished, no longer in season or past date for the grocery stores but all still perfectly edible.
