    Artisans, vendors, food trucks and more will be on hand for free weekly “Country Markets” at Historic Canoa Ranch, 5375 S. I-19 Frontage Road in Green Valley.

    The pilot program will be held every Thursday through Feb. 7 at Canoa Ranch, which is managed by the Pima County Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation Department. Guests also can enjoy music, local produce and much more at the market, which will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

    The vendor fee for a 12 x 12 space is $20.  All vendor fees go toward the restoration of the Tradesman House for a future research/oral history library and gift shop.  Vendors keep their sales.  

    Prospective vendors should contact Valerie Samoy, NRPR special staff assistant, at  Valerie.Samoy@pima.gov, 520-724-5220 or 520-349-5026.

    “If all goes well, we’ll likely test other days and continue throughout the spring and pick up in the fall,” Samoy said.

    The entry gate to Historic Canoa Ranch is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. for access to the newly restored Canoa Lake and the Anza Trail. Guided tours of the historic site are conducted Tuesdays and Saturdays at 10 and 11 a.m. Visit www.pima.gov/canoaranch for more info on programs and other guided tours.

    In 2001, Pima County purchased and began to restore the 4,800-acre Canoa Ranch complex with voter-approved 1997 and 2004 bond funds. Pima County opened the ranch headquarters to the public in March 2013.
