There are quite a few reasons we spend our weekends in Scottsdale, not the least of which would have to be the weekly Saturday morning farmers market in Old Town.
From Essence bakery's flaky croissants to a giant variety of fresh, local produce, this open-air extravaganza makes waking up on the weekends something to look forward to - and good news, they're back up and running.
As of Saturday, October 20th the Old Town Scottsdale Farmers Market has resumed its weekly showing of local vendors.
The opening weekend featured familiar faces such as B Naked Chocolates, Dr. Hummus, McClendon's Select and Two Sky Farms as well as first-timers like Constantino's Kitchen, Brat Haus and Hot House Naturals.
The market, characterized by its upscale selection of food growers and specialty food vendors, welcomes dogs and offers plenty of treats for pooches as well.
As always, you can find the farmers market in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale, in the city parking lot at the corner of Brown and 1st Streets. The market opens at 8 a.m. and will close at 1 p.m.
