Uptown Farmers MarketOpen every Wednesday and Saturday from 8 a.m. until noon, the Uptown Farmers Market is part market and part community gathering. Residents come from all over the Valley of the Sun to shop 160 vendors, whose goods include everything from Arizona-grown produce and microgreens to local eggs, dairy, ice cream, and even small-batch cocktail mixers. It’s a good market to hit up if you’re renting a room or a house and want to cook some of your own meals with local flavors, but snacking on items you buy as you browse the stands can count as a standing picnic! Depending on the season, the market sometimes hosts live music and other special activities.
