CenPho's very own Phoenix Public Market can officially call itself a foodie destination.
Epicurious.com, the Web site, information hub and social forum "for people who love to eat," has made the Phoenix Public Market it's first stop on their second annual summer Farmers' Market tour. Our very own Southwestern local produce and flair will be added to their list of destination markets in San Francisco, L.A., Chicago, D.C. and Philadelphia.
The Web site, which is partnered with Gourmet magazine, Bon Appetit, Self and a few other Condé Nast favorites, features more videos than the Food Network could air in a day and an absolute library of recipes.
The epicurious folks will be setting up a booth at the southeast corner of Central and McKinley this evening, with the best of the Valley's local producers, from 4 until 8. Stop by and get a free tote bag (the kind perfect for eco-friendly farmers' market shopping) as well as a recipe card geared toward the local fare.
