The Downtown Phoenix Farmers Market: Grilled Breakfast Burritos, Public Market Fresca, and Calendula Flowers By The Bundle

The Market: Between vendors and visitors, every market has its cheerleaders. But few come as loyal as those who frequent the Downtown Phoenix Farmers Market every Saturday morning. It's easy to find, located in the parking lot attached to the south side of the Downtown Phoenix Public Market, the permanent venue that stocks local produce and much of what vendors in the Valley offer all week long, not to mention a breakfast through dinner menu and wine bar. The Parking: The lot just south of the Public Market, across Pierce St., is yours for the parking (and remember, metered parking is still in effect on Saturdays). The market is light-rail friendly, narrowly favoring the Van Buren stop to the Roosevelt stop in walking distance. The Vendors: If you're hunting down what's growing this season, chances are likely that you'll find it at the produce-heavy Downtown Market.
