Summer Time :)

The kids have been out of school for a few weeks...but the weather seemed too nice to call it summer yet :) is, now, officially starting to get HOT and we can say it's summer!
I am sure you all know that our market takes a break from our outdoor event in the summer months, but that doesn't mean that you can't still get your hands on great produce!! Arizona has some wonderful summer produce (such as melons and squash to name a couple). Don't miss out on fresh, local produce!
***Sign up for a CSA or co-op box pick up from one of our WONDERFUL farmers!!***
Go to our website at and look at the "wonderful vendors" page. Get in touch with a farmer by looking on their website or giving them a call and see where their pick ups are. I know that Pinnacle Farms has a co-op box pick up in Peoria. For only $25 a week, you can pick from 2 different boxes online. It is at the Dodge dealership in Arrowhead on Saturday mornings.

ALSO...some news for you about next season! :) I was hoping that we would get to do our market every weekend when our new season started, but that won't end up happening this year (fingers crossed for next though!) :)....SO we will still be going strong at Park West on the 3rd Saturday of each month starting in September. Mark your calendars for September 17th!!!! Hope to see you all there! Bring a friend or two or three :) There will be perks for bringing a friend too! We will have special things for people who support us and get the word out. Make sure to stop by the information booth at the markets to see what we have for you! :)

Make sure to follow us on facebook for updates and special things that you will only hear about there. If you haven't liked us on facebook yet, please go to and check it out!

(shhh...little secret...we are looking to start up one or two new markets on the west side so follow us on our blog and on facebook to keep updated on that too!) :)

Thank you for supporting us and for supporting the wonderful vendors that make our market great. We appreciate your desire to support local businesses and eat fresh AZ produce.

See you soon! And have a WONDERFUL summer!
