Scottsdale's Old Town Farmers Market is back and reportedly going to be bigger than ever. How big? Well, just about double the size of last season's.
Big name local produce growers McClendon's Select, Seacat Gardens, and Maya's Farm will all be selling fresh fruits and veggies at the market, something other farmer's markets have been lacking. The La Vida Locavore truck will also be slinging fresh, local foods. What is a locavore, you ask? Apparently, it is someone who only eats foods produced within a 100 mile radius of where they live.
The market will be open on Halloween morning from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. But we're excited for the following weekend because market organizers are beginning an event where a local chef shops with market attendees for ingredients to one of their recipes. The guest chef will then demo the recipe. The first chef up to the plate is James Porter from Petite Maison, who has decided not to plan a menu and improvise with what's available at the market.
Nothing like an improv cooking class to start your Saturday right!
