Market on The Move
J.D. Fitzgerald/The Explorer

You may have heard about the Market on The Move in Tucson and wondered what it's all about.

In short, you give $10 donation, and get up to 60 pounds of produce, per person at the varying locations. It is so much produce, that you will end up sharing it with your family and co-workers.

What you get varies from week to week, but last week I hand my hands full with a big box of Roma tomatoes, grapes tomatoes, and green beans.

Check it out this Saturday, April 26 from 7-10 a.m. at these locations:
