It's artichoke season, y'all, which means we're looking forward to peeling and devouring as many 'chokes as we can get our hands on.

This weekend Singh Farms in Scottsdale will be getting in on the artichoke action with their Aritchoke Extravaganza on Saturday, May 4.

In celebration of artichoke season they're offering fresh-picked artichokes for $.50 a pop. And in case you're intimidated by all those leaves, they'll also have a chef on-site to help guests figure out how to grow, harvest and prepare the veggie.

If you're not looking for artichokes (for some crazy reason, because it is, after all, an artichoke event) they'll also have Boho Farm's spectacular lemon curd and jellies, Goldwater Mercantile's hot sauces, musical guest Roman Orona, and local artist Hugo Medina.

The following produce/products will be available:

green onion i'itoi onion giant onion chard red mustard rosemary beets turnips carrots thyme curry sage arugula oranges mulberries parsley celery kale raw honey
