One of my favorite things to do on the weekend is shop the farmers markets. I like to get up early, before the crowd hits, and take my time looking at everything. My favorite farmers market is in Scottsdale , but I also like the one in downtown Phoenix (which stays open most of the year, unlike other markets)! Tomorrow I am going to venture to the Biltmore Union Farmers Market because it’s open on Wednesdays, and my Dad and brother are coming over for dinner. In the mean time here is a list of seasonal fruit and veg you can expect to find at the Phoenix farmers markets today.
