is bringing a new weekly farmers market to the heart of Downtown Phoenix. Open every Wednesday from 4-8 p.m., the new Arizona Center Farmers Market is kicking off later this month on Wednesday, Jan. 23.
More than 40 local small businesses and farmers will congregate in the center’s lush Grotto space, offering fresh produce, specialty food items, prepared foods, crafts, and body care items. Vendors include Arizona Bread Company, Big Red’s Hot Sauce, Doctor Hummus, Fluffy Vegans, Los Muertos Salsa, Midtown Microgreens, Pink Honey Candle, Sun Tan Honey Farms and more.
“We are excited to bring a midweek farmers market to the heart of Downtown Phoenix,” said Matt Root, CEO and managing partner for Parallel Capital Partners, owners of Arizona Center. “We’re proud to host some of the Valley’s finest craftsmen, farmers and artisans and look forward to enjoying the best local culture with the many Phoenix residents who live, work and play downtown.”
Arizona Center is an ideal location for a farmers market, due to its central location on Third St. and Van Buren in Downtown Phoenix. Patrons can enjoy shopping for local goods in the unique open-air urban oasis, making it convenient for all those who live and work nearby to replenish their groceries midweek and find unique, handmade items. Parking is available as well for those who don’t live within walking or biking distance.
“We are thrilled for the opportunity to team up with Arizona Center to provide the local residents, students, and tourists the best vendors in the Valley. We look forward to serving the downtown community,” said Salomon Aliser, market organizer for Arizona Center Farmers Market and founder of Pinnacle Peak Farmers Market.
In addition to the midweek farmers market, Arizona Center is also hosting monthly pop-up markets with unique local vendors. More information about these pop-ups is coming soon.
