Support your communities by taking part in an outlet for local food production, create jobs, and build family self-sufficiency; the Phoenix Public Market. The Phoenix Public Market consists of open-air markets and food trucks, depending on which day of the week you attend. The market connects local farms and families; promoting healthy food in a vibrant environment.
The Phoenix Public Market is a place created to increase access to fresh, healthy food in an underserved area of Arizona. The Market, also creates jobs, keeps local farmers on their land, and promotes family self-sufficiency; thus giving micro-businesses a chance to get started. The Market helps those micro-businesses gain recognition and builds their capacity. A way to maintain Arizona’s heritage and bounty, Community Food Connections has implemented this “program”. There are seasonal events that the Market hosts such as Phoestivus, Wheel Food/Real Food, and Leafy Greens Week; displaying the harvest and seasonal goods. The Market is held Wednesday evenings, as well as, weekend mornings year round. The location of the market is specific to the Northeast Corner of Central Avenue and Pierce Street.
Some things that you can find, while browsing the Market include flowers, seasonal produce, eggs, and meats. Aside from the fresh foods, businesses display their products such as healthy dog treats, pastries, artisan breads, handmade pastas, and pantry items. On Food Truck Friday’s, you can dabble into the exotic world of food. Restaurants and skilled chefs present their delectable eats; from Indian tacos to Filipino street food to Gourmet hot dogs, there is guaranteed something for everyone to enjoy.
All of the items sold at the Market are grown locally or hand-crafted by the person selling it. The vendors are more than happy to answer any questions a customer may have; whether it be about their product or their growing practices.
