Summer Farmers' Markets, 2014

We’re reaching that time of year already. You know, that time where the temperature gauge ticks slowly up and up and up? Yeah. In case you didn’t notice yet, it’s summertime. The Arizona economy slows down during the summer, so it is more important now than ever, that we continue to support our local farmers' markets! Warmer weather means fewer people making their way outside, which can unfortunately, significantly decrease the traffic at our valley’s farmers’ markets. This leads many markets and vendors to close up shop, or to change their hours. It varies from market to market, so I thought we’d go ahead and do an info roundup on which LFA Member markets are open!

First off, here are the markets that stay open for the summer, and their temporary summer hours:

Unfortunately, the following markets will close during the heat of the summer (check back though—most markets open back up in the early part of October). So, if one of these is your weekly market, you might have to switch to a new one, just until we hit fall.
