Nirvana can be achieved just off Hwy 101 and Thomas Rd., at the rich, shaded 20 acres of Singh Farms. Every Saturday from 8am to 1pm, Ken and Lee Singh open up their farmers' market to the general public. Otherwise, the couple sell to individual hotels and restaurants the rest of the week when not farming.
"What I want folks to see is this can be done in the desert, without chemicals," says Ken Singh.
Check out the slideshow of the farm and its fresh produce.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
