BEST WAY TO FIND A LOCAL FARMERS MARKET Phoenix 2007 - www.foodconnect.org
We happen to love the Downtown Phoenix Public Market. We also happen to live in downtown Phoenix, which, we admit, probably has a lot to do with it. No one wants to get up on a Saturday morning and drive 45 minutes for a bag of apples, even if they are organic. The idea behind the farmers market indeed, the whole "locavore" movement is that you should buy your food as close to home as possible. That's why we're so glad we stumbled on foodconnect.org, which links to details about the Phoenix market, but also includes a long list of farmers markets all over the state.
Surprise! There's a weekly farmers market in Surprise. And one in Florence. And several across the East Valley, including three in Mesa. Talk about acting locally.
