Support Your Local

If you’re buying products not made by local businesses, you’re pretty much handing your money straight to The Man. And you really have no excuse for that, when the Certified Local Fall Festival brings more than 100 local vendors together for a day of shopping, eating, and dining.

On Saturday, November 9, local vendors, restaurants and food trucks in downtown Phoenix will celebrate all things Arizona-made. Expect live entertainment from Arizona musicians, as well as performance artists, crafts and activities for kids, a raffle and silent auction. Participating businesses include Frances boutique, Le Grande Orange Grocery, The Parlor Pizzeria, and Zia Records.

Celebrate local businesses at 10 West Portland Street, between Third and Central avenues, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission to the festival is free and food samples will be available for $1 tickets, while beer and wine tastings will cost $2 each. For more information, visit
