Weekend Farmer’s Market

Oct 09, 2017 | By New Darlings

One of our favorite things to do when the weather finally cools down here is head to the local farmer’s market in downtown Phoenix at the Phoenix Public Market.  When we first moved to Arizona, one of the first connections we made was with restaurant owner and chef, Aaron Chamberlin.  He is a huge influence in this city and one of the kindest people we’ve had the pleasure to meet and befriend.  He is the owner of Phoenix Public Market Cafe which oversees the market on Saturdays.  It’s so fun to gather with the community, support local farmers and businesses, and enjoy all that the market has to offer.

We always seem to gravitate towards the different breads, fresh produce and baskets.  Everyone is so friendly and what we think may just be an hour visit always turns into several, running into friends and chatting with the vendors. There seems to always be a good vibe, which has been a refreshing way to kickstart the weekend…happy people, outdoors, in the fresh air, many with their dogs and kids. We’re working on getting Henry out there. 😉 Either way, it feels good to welcome in the new season on the weekends here.
We are always looking for fresh food options to cook with at home.  Abby Lee Farms is a great vendor if you’re local and are looking for fruit and veggie options. We stocked up on peppers, tomatoes, and onions…perfect for salads and sauces, which have been easy go-to meals for during the week, lately.

We picked up some fresh fruit, local bread and jam, and spent the rest of the day outside in the yard snacking while Henry ran amuck. The grass just got reseeded for winter grass today, so it was nice to take advantage of the yard and fresh air, because we’ll have to stay off it for a few weeks. We seriously regret not getting a few more loaves of the braided bread with sesame seeds. It’s taking a lot of will power not to dip it in olive oil and eat the whole thing in one sitting…so good!

The market is open every Saturday in downtown Phoenix.  We hope to see you guys there!
