Your Guide to the 10 Best Farmers Markets in Phoenix

Over here at The Phoenix Review, we’re huge fans of farmers markets. We absolutely love them; and frankly, we think they’re one of the best parts of sunny weekend mornings.

Plus, you get to experience the friendliness and joy of being involved in the spirit of community. What’s not to love, right?

Across the valley, you’ll find several pop ups of farmers markets selling a wide variety of products. Even if you come just to look around, we still think it’s a great free thing to do in the city.

Address: 720 N 5th Street, Phoenix, AZ 85004

Hours: (May to September) Saturday, 7:30AM–11:30AM; (October to April) Saturday, 8AM–1PM

Among the most popular farmers markets in the city is the Downtown PHX Farmers Market. It’s a comforting thought that it’s open year-round, rain or shine.

It’s operated by Community Food Connections, a non-profit organization whose goal is to strengthen the sustainable food systems of the local community. 

Here, you’ll be able to get your fill of the seasonally-grown, local food and products. They’ve made it a point to partner up with local farmers who happily display their harvest.

Expect to find a myriad of fresh fruits and vegetables, grass-fed meats, organic eggs, freshly-baked bread and pastries, jams, honey, peanut butter, and more. 

There are also a few stalls that sell homemade flours and mixes, along with ready-to-eat meals with gluten-free and vegan options. You’ll find several stalls that sell delicious drinks, too, which include coffee, slushies, and fruit juices.

For those who love collecting handcrafted products, the market sees no shortage of this. There are various local artisan wares and interesting woven items that you’ll find here.

Admission is free and there’s often live music playing in the background. Don’t forget to bring cash and a reusable market bag when you come!

2. Tempe Farmers Market

Address: 805 S Farmer Ave, Tempe, AZ 85281

Hours: Monday to Sunday, 8AM–11PM

The Tempe Farmers Market is more similar to a grocery than a row of stalls and concession stands. It’s open daily and year-round, too.

What we like about this place is how varied the selection of goods are. And, everything in the store is locally-grown and -produced in Arizona.

Take your pick among vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free options, and more. There are also a lot of organic smoothies available and local coffee and tea selections.

If you come visit, don’t skip out on the confection aisle. They have a great selection of freshly-baked breads, cakes, and pastries delivered first thing in the morning everyday.

They’re got some great vegan deli items to go, too, along with pasta and salad dishes. Consider them an everyday farmers market.

3. Uptown Farmers Market

Address: N 2nd St, Phoenix, AZ 85012

Hours: Wednesday, 9AM–1PM; Saturday, 8AM–1PM

Uptown Farmers Market is all about handmade food and handcrafted goods. It’s operated by a small, local crew who are passionate about helping Arizona farmers and makers.

They’re in partnership with over 200 local producers and artisans. Quite impressive, if you ask us.

Most of their goods are fruits, vegetables, eggs, and other food staples, which are all delivered just a day or two prior. The best part is that the producers themselves are the ones manning the stalls, so you get to talk and engage with them.

Every Saturday, they have an online marketplace, too, where you can place your order and have it delivered straight to your home. This is such a convenient way to shop, especially for those who don’t have the time to head out.

Among our favorite stalls here is Danzeisen Dairy, which is available every Wednesday. They’re a family-run dairy shop that was the first to offer dairy in glass bottles here in Arizona. 

Another is Dr. Hummus, which offers some delicious hummus spreads. They were even part of Phoenix Magazine’s “25 Tastiest Local Buys” some years ago.

And we have to give a special mention to Love Acai + Ahi Poke Bowl. Everything they serve is fresh, colorful, healthy, and seriously good.

Even though it’s located in an open area directly under the Arizona heat, hundreds of visitors come to take a look around. Besides, there are a ton of ice cream, juice, and cold drinks stalls available around.

4. Gilbert Farmers Market

Address: 222 N Ash St, Gilbert, AZ 85234

Hours: (October to April) 8AM–12PM, Saturday; (May to September) 7AM–11AM, Saturday

Every Saturday, you’ll find Gilbert Farmers Market within the shadow of downtown’s iconic Gilbert Water Tower. It’s relatively small, with just a little over 60 vendor partners, but they do have quite a wide selection of goods, too.

They’re best known for the assortment of food trucks available in the market. Among the ones people line up for are Genuine Fresche for delicious smoothies, Casita Coffee for specialty coffee, and Rolling Cones for gourmet snow cones.

Apart from that, there are also a lot of homemade pies, chocolates, and nut butters that visitors can buy. Make sure to try a few out, along with all the farm-fresh produce available.

Pets are also welcome and there are a couple of fun stalls for kids. There’s even a face painting booth that’s really popular among the young ones.

Even though the market gets quite busy, there’s ample parking around and restrooms for optimum comfort. Still, we suggest coming as early as you can to get the first pick among all the goods available.

5. Chandler Farmers Market

Address: 3 S Arizona Ave, Chandler, AZ 85225

Hours: Monday to Friday, 8:30AM–5PM

The Chandler Farmers Market is run by Downtown Chandler Community Partnership, a local non-profit organization. Contrary to usual farmers markets, they’re open during the weekdays.

Here, over 30 vendors come together weekly to showcase their fresh produce and homemade products. You’ll find garnishes, too, and tamales, salsa, relishes, honey, and more.

The market may be relatively small, but they do have a good assortment of available goods. Also, it’s a fun place to visit as they often have live music and games. 

We love this place because of how tightknit the community is. Everyone seems to know everyone, and the vendors are really friendly and nice.

The products sold here are mostly reasonably priced, too. Not that we mind paying a bit more to support small businesses, but it seems that they regulate prices here so that a lot of consumers can try everything.

We suggest coming at breakfast time and having a go at the freshly-baked breads and artisan coffee. It really is quite the experience, especially during the colder Phoenix months.

6. Old Town Scottsdale Farmers Market

Address: 3806 N Brown Ave, Scottsdale, AZ 85251

Hours: (October to April) Saturday, 8AM–1PM

Old Town Scottsdale Farmers Market has been a go-to for local residents for 14 years and counting now. And, they’ve grown their community to over a hundred vendors.

The thing about this market is that you’ll only find food and farm produce. They offer a wide variety of organic, pesticide-free produce along with seasonal specialties.

Among these are cider, apples, flowers, and all varieties of meat. You’ll also see an array of free-range chicken eggs from local farmers. 

But what makes the market most popular is their vast assortment of cheese. There are stalls upon stalls of locally-made cheese that you can perfectly pair with artisan bread, jams, and a lot more.

You can even taste some delicious wine from a couple of vendors. Cheese and cold cuts are best paired with wine, after all.

Pets are allowed here, too, so feel free to bring your fur babies. It’s probably one of the busiest farmers markets in the area so we suggest that you come early to avoid the crowds.

Sadly, the market is closed during the summer. So during the months of October to April, don’t miss the chance to drop by! 

7. RoadRunner Park Farmers Market

Address: 3502 E Cactus Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85032

Hours: (June to September) Saturday, 7AM–10AM; (October to May) Saturday, 8AM–12PM

The RoadRunner Park Farmers Market is a neighborhood one, in our book. We love it for its reliability and consistency in offering topnotch fruits, veggies, and produce every week.

Families love coming here not just for the selection of goods, but also for the place itself. Since it’s located inside a park, there’s a playground, a small fishing pond, a pool, and a soccer field within the premises.

You can bring your pets, too, and admission is completely free. And, all stalls accept Arizona Farmers Market Nutrition Program (AZFP) vouchers, as well as Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB) ones.

As for the goods, they’re pretty much what you’ll find in any other farmers market. Baked goods, honey, nursery stock, meat, and handcrafted items are just a few of them.

RoadRunner Park Farmers Market Wellness Booth

We also appreciate that there’s a wellness booth nearby. We don’t see this in a lot of farmers markets, so we like that they put a lot of thought into making the place safe for everyone who comes here.

However, there aren’t a lot of table setups nearby where you can sit and eat. Our tip is to just bring a picnic blanket and settle under one of the many pretty trees and palm trees for shade.

8. Ahwatukee Farmers Market

Address: 4700 E Warner Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85044

Hours: (June to September) Saturday, 8AM–11AM; (October to May) Saturday, 9AM–1PM

Since 2004, the Ahwatukee Farmers Market has been in full-swing. It’s one of the local markets we know that has a dedicated and loyal community following.

Because of how in-demand the market is and how many visitors they see each week, they were able to extend it to a year-round operation. This is just a testament to how well-loved the vendors are by residents and visitors alike.

While you’ll find local and seasonal produce alongside herbs, flowers, and meats, you’ll also find an assortment of fresh seafood here. We don’t see a lot of farmers markets with such, and it’s one of the reasons why we frequent this place.

After shopping around, visitors love exploring the many ready-to-eat meals available. There are chicken sandwiches, burritos, and our favorite vegan grilled cheese.

Come hungry. We mean it when we say that there are a lot of mouthwatering dishes you’ll want to try when you visit.

The selection for arts and crafts goods are bigger than most. There are also some all-natural cleaning and homemade supplies here that you can get refilled once you run out.

In hindsight, it’s a nice neighborhood farmers market. You’ll practically find everything you need here and more.

9. Farmers Market North Scottsdale

Address: 9201 E Happy Valley Rd, Scottsdale, AZ 85255

Hours: Saturday, 9AM–1PM

Farmers Market North Scottsdale is probably the newest one on our list and in town. It just opened in September of this year, but it’s already gaining a loyal following.

There’s nothing entirely unique or different about this market, but that’s not to say that what they have aren’t of excellent quality. In fact, most of the visitors say that they’ll be coming here every week as they truly enjoyed the freshness of the produce and meats.

Farmers Market North Scottsdale Thingamabobs

Apart from the food, we also saw a lot of pretty thingamabobs – crystals, beaded jewelry, home decors, and more. There were even some craft materials for crocheted things and rugs.

People were lining up at the food trucks, too. While there was a good selection of vegan and vegetarian options, they had delicious meaty meals around, too.

There aren’t a lot of stalls yet, but they keep growing every week. We also noticed the diversity among what vendors offer; there weren’t too many options for one thing, so everyone had a bunch of interested customers. 

We really think that this market is worth the drive. Everyone was super friendly, too!

10. Momma’s Organic Market

Farmers Market North Scottsdale

Address: 7780 W Arrowhead Towne Center, Glendale, AZ 85308

Hours: Saturday, 9AM–11AM

Over west of the valley, Momma’s Organic Market is a local favorite. This is because there are a ton of vendors offering the usual things you’d find, and some more.

We will say that they have some of the most fresh and organic produce around. The fruits, especially, are freshly-picked and delivered just a day before.

You get to meet the farmers, too, and other local artisans. We had a lot of fun talking and getting to know a few of them.

Breads, salsa, jams, and honey were a common sight – all homemade, all freshly-baked, and all really delicious.

We were also pleased to find that they host a variety of family-friendly events. Sometimes, there will be yoga classes, petting zoos, pet adoptions, and even food demos.

And for the kids, there’s typically a bounce house, a face painting stall, and a mini train. You’re allowed to bring your pets, too!

It really is a well-rounded and nice farmers market. We only wish they were open longer than just 2 hours every week.
