Here’s the most current information I posted about Market on the Move.  I’ll be lazy and just copy if here since many are finding this through a Google search . . . and I don’t want you to have old information!

Market on the move . . . Some weeks can be great and others not so great.  BUT, all in all, it can be an spectacular deal.  The best advice I have for you is to check their Facebook page each week.  They update the page with what varieties of produce they will have available.  They may limit some of them and some of them may be close to expiration.  On the other hand, you may be able to walk away with more than you know what to do with, of your favorite item, and it may be completely fresh.

If you can find a produce buddy and split the cost of the produce, I think that’s the best way to do it. :) Or, you can make many people happy by sharing it. It can be a lot of food!

So, what am I talking about? . . .

Every Saturday, Market on the Move is at various locations around Phoenix and Tucson.  (Locations vary slightly from week to week.)  You get around 60 pounds of produce for $10.  You can bring a laundry basket or boxes or they also provide them.

Remember, they let you know what produce they are expecting on their Facebook page each week. Hopefully, they will list them soon.

Check their website for locations around Phoenix and Tucson.

    So I went this morning. It was very well-organized and well attended. We decided not to stay because from what I saw from other people's boxes there were a lot of tomatoes, cucumbers, melons, but not much else. For $10 I could go to Superstition Ranch market at get most of what I needed. If I canned, it might be worth it. The people were really nice and very helpful, though!

      I had to be two different places this morning that happened to take me very close to both locations.  I ended up checking them both out.  The central Phoenix location was INSANE!!  I've never seen it that busy.  (I arrived about 8:45 and it was less busy about an hour and half later, when I returned — though the selection was slightly less.)  It was very well organized, so I guess that shouldn't be called insane.  :)  I wish I would have known the other location didn't have a wait, though.  (I asked if it was that busy earlier and they told me it wasn't nearly like that.)  Last year, I walked right up both times I did it.  I took my girls to the nearby library and we returned just after our number was called.  It was a good opportunity to spend time reading with them.  :)  By the time I got there, the melon was gone, so it was tomatoes and cucumbers for us!  My sister and I spent a long time making salsa this afternoon.  Yum!  I had found a pickling packet for the cucumbers, on clearance awhile back, so I'm going to give that a try — just a small amount for the fridge.  Then, I'm getting ready to freeze the tomatoes.  I just got off the phone with a friend who dices them and then freezes them, no other prep.  I also thought somebody told me they freeze them whole and then the skins slip right off when thawed.  Either way — I don't mind the skin in chili, soups, or spaghetti sauce.  I think I'll try both ways . . . after giving some to neighbors and others.  It's a lot!  I'm hoping for more fruit in the next couple weeks.  Oh, they did have those containers that are pictured above, but they were the golden, sweeter ones.  My kids are already hooked on them!  Okay — way more than you wanted to know, but I wanted others to know more details, if they wanted to also.  :)  Sorry it wasn't exactly what you were looking for.

      I'm still swimming in tomatoes over here.  I may go next weekend.  I need to get on their website and see where their locations are.  Did you go?
