Market Updates

This week’s CSM cardholder special is $5 off all bottles of Dos Cabezas wines. Dos Cabezas makes some of Arizona’s most unique and complex wines from grapes grown in Sonoita.

T-Day special: $1 off recycled wine glasses with the Phoenix Public Market logo. Refresh Glass repurposes wine bottles into slick 12-ounce glasses. Eco-friendly, great for local business, and yes, pretty swanky as well.

First Friday: Acoustic Desert will perform in the Urban Grocery & Wine Bar from 7 to 11 p.m.

A note about eggs: Chile Acres, Dave the Eggman, One Windmill Farm, Golo Family Organic Farm and Arizona Homegrown Solutions have fresh, cage-free eggs each week at their booth outdoors — you know the farmer, and they know their chickens! The Urban Grocery offers fresh, cage-free eggs from Conchita’s Farm in Central Phoenix, as well as Hickman’s cage-free eggs from happy chickens in Central Valley, CA.

Wednesday @ the Market

Let the pouring begin! Dos Cabezas will be sampling their Red, El Norte and Aguileon wines in the Urban Grocery & Wine Bar from 5 to 7 p.m. The outdoor market features Wei of Chocolate, Bread Basket Bakery, Dr. Hummus, the Tamale Store, Short Leash Hot Dogs and the market’s farm stalls: Arizona Homegrown Solutions’ Community Exchange Table, Horny Toad Farm, One Windmill Farm, Hungry Baer Troyer Poultry and Hartill Enterprise’s Beefalo meat.

Saturday @ the Market

Stop by early for Somali Bantu Farms’ okra, squash and melons, as well as Addey Farm’s melons grown on the nearby Gila River Indian Reservation. Maya’s Farm is providing the sweet pears — we’re getting into the juicy season! — and Gigi’s Original Cobbler Factory will have plenty of luscious cobbler.
