The Ajo Farmers Market & Café is a social enterprise of the Ajo Center for Sustainable Agriculture. This brick-and-mortar location houses a farm-to-table restaurant, community kitchen incubator, market store, pop-up food sales, and is home to the Ajo Farmers Market and Ajo Food Pantry. We pride ourselves in celebrating local farmers, wild food harvesters, food microbusinesses, and local artisans from Ajo, the Tohono O’odham Nation and the surrounding areas.
The Ajo Farmers Market, located outside of the Ajo Farmers Market & Café, was started in 2009 by the Ajo Center for Sustainable Agriculture. The passion behind the farmers market was a vision that Nina Sajovec, Co-Founder and Executive Director, had of a healthier Ajo, a greener Ajo, an Ajo where cultural foods are celebrated and where everyone has access to good healthy foods. The Ajo Farmers Market provides a marketplace for local microbusinesses to sell and grow through a network of vendors and a space for community gathering.
