Epicurious.com, the web magazine for people who love to eat, is making the Downtown Phoenix Public Market a stop on their second annual farmers’ market tour this summer.

On Saturday, July 18 and Wednesday, July 22, stop by the Epicurious.com booth at the market anytime during its operating hours, and pick up a free eco-friendly tote bag, a recipe card with the perfect dish to cook up that day, and other great give-aways.

The tour is sponsored by Newman’s Own, Stacy’s, McCormick, and World MasterCard.

The Phoenix Public Market, 721 N. Central Ave., is an outdoor market open every Wednesday evening from 4pm to 8pm and every Saturday morning from 8am to noon, whether rain or shine.

The market, established in February 2005, features specials on Arizona grown produce, fresh baked goods, local arts and crafts, live music, and more. It is a unique outlet for small local food-related enterprises to create opportunities for small businesses that cannot afford typical retail space costs to market their products.

The Phoenix Public Market has provided the city with access to affordable and nutritious food, and is working to establish a permanent several-day-a-week grocery store in the heart of downtown Phoenix.

Urban Grocery and Wine Bar will be at 14 E. Pierce St., adjacent to the current open-air market. It is expected to open in mid-September and will operate Tuesday through Saturday from 11am to 8pm. It will offer high quality, affordable groceries, perpared food to eat in or take out, flowers and plants, wine and beer, bath and body products, household and pet items, and crafts, with priority given to those made by local artisans or produced in Arizona.

In addition, Royal Coffee Bar, located at 2nd Ave. and Jackson, will be opening a second site, Royal at the Market, at the store.
