Farmers’ Market returns to the Hills
Farmers’ Markets are an incredible opportunity. You’re surrounded by the freshest local ingredients possible as well as all local businesses and purveyors. Fresh produce, artisanal and hand-made cheeses, specialty foods as well as flowers, jewelry and various forms of art are all located in the same space; It’s a food lover’s paradise. Often times, the business owners will be present at the Market, so it’s a great opportunity to get to know the hows and whys behind the business as well as to get to know the owners.
The Fountain Hills Farmers’ Market and Art on the Avenue was originally launched in 2008 and has expanded through the past five years. Judi Yates, the co-market coordinator, is currently looking for artists and craftsmen who produce their own original work to participate in the Market on a rotating basis each week. The Market will be open on Thursdays from 11am to 5pm from now until mid-April.
