This Week: Shop Local, Eat Local for Independents Week

You want to see locally owned restaurants thrive? Put your money where your mouth is.

The folks at Local First Arizona would be happy to help. Once again, they've organized dozens of local businesses for the annual Independents Week -- going on now through July 5. Visit the website, and you can print out a special coupon that'll get you a 20 percent discount at all sorts of places.

There's a considerable food component, including retail spots like Urban Cookies and Pop the Soda Shop, as well as favorite indie eateries such as Uncorked - The Unpretentious Wine Bar, and Duck & Decanter.

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.
