Woo-hoo, fall's here! Time to wander out from our air-conditioning-stifled homes and into the fresh, autumn air to score some locally grown goodies at our favorite farmers markets.
And, according to Arizona Community Farmers' Markets, there's a lot going on this season. Which is why you're gonna need a schedule.
For starters, Carefree Farmers' Market is celebrating its 10th anniversary and will host a celebration later this fall, Old Town Farmers' Market is opening on Saturday, October 20, with a whopping 85 vendors, and the Avondale Farmers' Market plans on featuring a monthly collection of heritage farm implements and demonstrations.
Now get your farmers market on.
