Saturday: Go Indie at the Certified Local Fest

By Michele Laudig

If you're all about eating and shopping locally, then this party's for you. It's Local First Arizona's fourth annual Certified Local Fall Festival, happening this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Duck & Decanter (16th St. and Camelback).

There will be free food, shopping, live music, and kids' activities, with a heavy presence of great food-centric businesses. Look for everything from high-style restaurants (Postino, Cowboy Ciao, Tapino, and more) to funky specialty shops (including The Pickle Lady from the downtown market, Schreiner's Fine Sausage, and Pop the Soda Shop).
