    After a summer hiatus, “Country Markets” at Green Valley’s Historic Canoa Ranch will restart Oct. 24 under new management and continue each Thursday through April 16, 2020.

    Visitors will find artisans, vendors, food trucks and more on hand each Thursday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the ranch, 5375 S. I-19 Frontage Road in Green Valley.

    Historic Canoa Ranch is managed by Pima County Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation. Guests also can enjoy music, local produce and much more at the market.

    “We got great feedback on these markets, with attendance increasing each week,” Valerie Samoy, NRPR special staff assistant, said. “Not only did visitors have a good time, but vendors were thrilled with the amount of business they conducted. It was a win-win for everyone.”

    The vendor fee for a 12 x 12 space is $25. All vendor fees go toward restoration of the Tradesman House for a new visitor center and gift shop. Vendors keep their sales.  

    Prospective vendors should contact Jo Ream at 520-909-3218 or canoacountrymarket@gmail.com.

    The entry gate to Historic Canoa Ranch is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. for access to Canoa Lake and the Anza Trail. Open hours at the ranch headquarters are 8-11 a.m. on Saturdays when overview tours are scheduled. Visit www.pima.gov/canoaranch for all the tour schedules, programs, events and other info.

    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.
