You may think that the Arizona desert doesn’t have much to offer when it comes to fresh produce and locally grown food, but a visit to one of the valley’s many farmers markets will have you thinking otherwise. Each market offers something unique, but at all of them you will undoubtedly find fresh locally grown seasonal fruits, vegetables, herbs, flowers and plants, artisan baked goods, and meats like natural pork, beef and fish. And why not make it a family outing? Farmers markets are the perfect family-friendly atmosphere and some will even let your four-legged family members tag along!


Check out the list below for some of the area’s best farmers markets*. With over a dozen in multiple locations almost every day of the week, you’ll never run out of options when it comes to reaping the desert’s bounty.
