It may be kicking in a little later than in other parts of the US, but fall is arriving in the Valley. With temperatures finally starting to drop, a variety of outdoor activities start to seem much more inviting. Whether you’re looking for a fun, outdoor adventure or fresh, local ingredients for pumpkin bread and other Thanksgiving treats, read on to see my round-up of the best farmers’ markets in the valley to visit this Fall.

Open Air Market @ Phoenix Public Market

This market operates year-round in Downtown Phoenix, right by the ASU Downtown campus, on Saturdays from 8AM to 1PM. If you can’t make their Saturday event, they host Food Truck Fridays and provide ingredients to the Phoenix Public Market Cafe, open 7 days a week.

Another Downtown Phoenix favorite, the Phoenix Flea sets up in full-force only twice a year! In addition to food, Phoenix Flea is known for selling artisan goods, fine art, and fashion. Stop by on Small Business Saturday, November 26th.

The Camelback Market

The Camelback Market, also known as Vincent’s Market, is not your average farmers’ market. They aim for a “‘European’ flair” by selling both local and imported goods, as well as French cuisine provided by Vincent Guerithault, world-renowned chef and owner of the neighboring Vincent on Camelback.

Uptown Farmers Markets

Another interesting take on the traditional farmers’ market, Uptown Farmers Market has uniquely adapted to Arizona, hosting their market indoors during the hot summer months, using their own token system, and offering a free Veggie Valet service where culinary students prep your fresh fruits and veggies.

Roadrunner Park Farmers Market

09 JUNE 2012 - PHOENIX, AZ: People walk through the Roadrunner Farmers' Market. The Roadrunner Farmer's Market, in Roadrunner Park in Phoenix, is one of the most popular farmers' markets in the Phoenix area. Unlike many of the other farmers' markets, it's open year round. Most of the vendors in the market are local small scale farmers who practice sustainable agriculture. The market is very popular with "locavores," people interested in eating food that is locally produced and not moved long distances to market. PHOTO BY JACK KURTZ

One of the oldest farmers’ markets in Arizona, the Roadrunner Park Farmers Market has been a shopping staple for 26 years. Located in Roadrunner Park, this market is an ideal activity for families and those looking to get outdoors and enjoy the cooler weather.

Old Town Farmers Market

Old Town Scottsdale is one of the best places in Phoenix to spend the day exploring. Next time you stop by, visit this market known for its fresh, organic, and pesticide-free selection and local restaurant stands.
