One of my New Year’s resolutions for 2023 was to put down the phone, walk away from the computer, and shut off the television. Are you sensing a theme? I’ve been trying to limit my screen time – and even though I’m using a screen to write this note, I’m happy to report that I’ve been doing a great job so far! How are your New Year’s resolutions holding up?

March is the perfect month to get outdoors and enjoy all of the things our neighborhood has to offer –farmer’s markets being one of those things. We’ve got a list of Valley farmer’s markets inside this edition and a spotlight on a new business that promotes checking in with your mental health and wellness. 

Of course, it wouldn’t be a

March edition without a shout-out to

March 17. This year’s “Greenest Day in the Desert” is brought to us by the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Faire, an event celebrating 40 years in the Valley. 

We also checked in with one of Arcadia’s favorite mailmen, Robert Emery, who kicked off his 2023 with a winning submission to the Tucson Film Festival for his film “Bottled Up Poison.” 

Arcadia News is happy to present the 2023 Arcadia Home & Design edition, where readers will find stories about mocktails, spring cleaning and The Shady Dell, a trailer court that transports guests to the past – with a little present mixed in. We are so excited to share it with you.

Keep an eye out for next month’s edition. We’ll be sharing the Arcadia News Summer Camp Guide with some fun stuff going on this summer. Happy March, and thank you for reading Arcadia News!
