Page 3 of 3

The People: The people come in groups, many from neighborhoods surrounding the park, whether with family members or a set of friends. Often, they're also accompanied by dogs. We know dog walkers are nothing at new markets, but the park setting boosts canine attendance ten-fold.

Best Taste: The cheese and crackers from Rainbow Valley Farms are a treat, and they bring several kinds to try. There's nothing like orange slices on a warm morning, and San Tan Groves shows Arizona citrus off right. They're constantly cutting up slices of lemons, navels, Valencia oranges, blood oranges, Arizona sweets, and pink grapefruit.
