Saturday: Go Indie at the Certified Local Fest

By Michele Laudig

If you're all about eating and shopping locally, then this party's for you. It's Local First Arizona's fourth annual Certified Local Fall Festival, happening this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Duck & Decanter (16th St. and Camelback).

There will be free food, shopping, live music, and kids' activities, with a heavy presence of great food-centric businesses. Look for everything from high-style restaurants (Postino, Cowboy Ciao, Tapino, and more) to funky specialty shops (including The Pickle Lady from the downtown market, Schreiner's Fine Sausage, and Pop the Soda Shop).

KEEP PHOENIX NEW TIMES FREE... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
