This Year-Round Indoor Farmers Market In Arizona Is The Best Place To Spend Your Weekend
Farmers markets abound here in Arizona, but sometimes the weather doesn’t want to cooperate. Between bitter cold winters, monsoon season, and scorching heat, our plans to stock up on fresh, homegrown goods are often foiled. Tempe Farmers Market has changed the game by setting up shop indoors, ensuring locavores can get their fix rain or shine.
Borrowing elements from grocery stores and farmers markets, this Tempe institution is the best of both worlds. Rain or shine, you can stock up your favorite on local products all year long.
Seasonal, homegrown fruits and vegetables fill the market’s shelves. They’ll even make you an organic smoothie with some of the produce, in flavors like açaí, ginger, and even greens for all the tree huggers out there.
Artisan jams and jellies, nut butters, hummus, bread, meats, and cheeses are just a few of the items offered regularly. You can also stop by for a cup of morning joe made from locally-roasted coffee beans and served with your choice of regular or non-dairy milk.
Stumped on where to head for lunch? The market’s deli serves delicious wraps, salads, and other light fares perfect for a quick on-the-go bite.
We couldn’t forget about dessert! You’ll find cupcakes, donuts, and tons more sweet treats, all made with wholesome ingredients you can actually pronounce. Who knew healthy could taste so good?
You’ll find Tempe Farmers Market at 805 S. Farmer Ave., Tempe AZ 885281. It’s open daily from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.
For more information, you can visit the market’s
