In the blink of an eye, dining experiences went from tasting menus to curbside pick-up strategies and culinary conversations shifted from Instagram posts to Instacart orders.

However, support for local industries has remained high — and farmers markets remain key players in the farm-to-your-table movement. Thanks to year-round sunshine and growing seasons, Phoenicians and visitors can shop for farm-fresh goods any time of year.

And, just in time for fall, we’re highlighting the best farmers markets in Phoenix for safely picking up local fruits and veggies, bread, coffee beans, cheeses, treats, and a wide variety of other locally made products.
