Farmers markets or local produce in Tucson?

Am going to be in Tucson for a long weekend and would love to check out a farmers market or alternatively find a good source for local produce. We're staying with family and would like to do some cooking. Am hooked on blood oranges this time of year, so would love to find those for juicing.

We'll be driving all over the area, so any locations welcome. Any suggestions from the locals?
Thanks!

      Celery...

      I have routinely excellent shopping at the St. Phillips Plaza farmers market on Sundays... just finished sucking on a terrific blood orange I picked up there (messy).

      Here's a link to all of the markets in Tucson. I've also heard good things about the Plaza Palomino market.
