Prescott Farmers Market -Saturdays @ YRMC Miller Valley Lot
Oct 24 @ 7:30 am

Name of Event: Prescott Farmers Market

Where: YRMC parking lot, 900 Irons Springs Road, corner of Iron Springs Road and Miller Valley Road

When: Every Saturday through October, 7:30AM – 12:00PM

Beginning Saturday, September 5, 2020, the Prescott Farmers Market (PFM) will move from Yavapai College to its new location in the new parking lot at Yavapai Regional Medical Center at 900 Iron Springs Road, at the corner of Iron Springs and Miller Valley Roads (next to True Value). This is where YRMC staff parks during the week. It’s vacant on Saturdays and the perfect spot for us to conduct the market.
*This is NOT at the YRMC hospital lot on Willow Creek Rd, nor the backside of YRMC by YMCA where the market was a few years ago.
PFM Saturday hours will remain the same from 7:30AM to noon through our Summer season, ending October 31, 2020.
Due to the continued risk associated with COVID-19, PFM has implemented safety measures to help protect the health of customers and vendors, including hand-washing stations and booths spaced to allow for physical distancing. PFM requires its staff and vendors to wear face coverings and requests that customers to do so as well. As always, no pets are allowed in the market.
Summer is an exciting season in northern Arizona. Customers can find a variety of fresh summer vegetables, grass-fed beef, eggs, flowers, baked goods, ice cream, coffee, and prepared foods like burritos, tamales, and samosas, and other local goods. All markets run by PFM are producer-only farmers markets, meaning every item sold is either grown or produced by the seller here in Arizona. The majority of goods come from within a 30-mile radius of Prescott, though some vendors do travel from other parts of Yavapai County and Maricopa County.
At all market locations, customers can swipe their SNAP/EBT, debit or credit cards to receive tokens at the information booth. Double Up Food Bucks are unlimited for the time being. This means that households can double any amount of SNAP benefits when purchasing fresh vegetables and fruits at PFM markets. All vendors accept cash. Participants of the WIC and CSFP programs are able to receive Farmers Market Nutrition Program checks for immediate use at all market locations as well.
As a vital part of the economy, the mission of PFM is to support and expand local agriculture, cultivate a healthy community and increase access to affordable local food.

Warm for the Winter
Oct 27 @ 3:00 pm

Like many other Events during the Covid-19 Pandemic, Warm for Winter looks different this year.   But, that could be a good thing.   Instead of two days in October as was done last year, the Prescott Church of the Nazarene, 2110 Willow Creek Road, will hold Warm for Winter each Tuesday afternoon, from Noon to 3:00 pm, by appointment only, from Tuesday, October 20 through Tuesday, January 26, 2021 with breaks for Thanksgiving  and Christmas/New Year’s Holidays.

To protect those in need and volunteers, health and safety guidelines will be implemented.  Therefore, low income, homeless and needy individuals and families will be required to make an appointment at the Church (928-445-1136), wear a mask (adults and children), and bring proper identification to ensure residency in Yavapai County.   Examples of identification accepted are:  school identification, vaccination record, local library card, state insurance card, state identification card, passport, driver’s license, utility bill.

The need is there, even if the Event isn’t the same.  Providing hats, coats/jackets, scarves, gloves and blankets for low income families, the homeless and needy in Yavapai County has been a staple in this community for some time.   Prescott Church of the Nazarene and its H.O.P.E. Ministries continues this tradition.   For more information, contact Pastor Dora Carter, Director, H.O.P.E. Ministries at 928-445-1136.
