HDFB Weekend Recap: Uptown Farmer's Market

Early last week, I stumbled upon an instagram account for a local farmer's market, Uptown Farmer's Market, that is open every Wednesday and Saturday morning. Since I had the weekend off, I talked Andrew into getting up on Saturday morning and heading out in search for some local goods. When we arrived, we were blown away by how many different vendors there were. From local honeys, produce, milk, eggs, flours, kitchen ware, breads, clothing, and even a tamale stand. We may or may not have eaten a red chile pork and green chile chicken tamale for breakfast. The market even has live music by local artists, covered seating with games for the kids, and a bouncy house! We saw plenty of people walking their dogs, where you can even visit a local dog treat maker. Each week they have different vendors, so there is always something new to try. We got plenty of samples from vendors, and left with full bellies and bags full of goodies. My favorite find was a tie between a local hot sauce from Homeboy's Hot Sauce and a bunch of kale, larger than my head, for only 50 cents!! Andrew would argue that the best find of the day was a caramel pecan sticky bun, which we quickly devoured outside of the car on our way out of the market. Hunger knows no limits. So if you are an Arizona local, I definitely recommend that you head on down to the Uptown Farmer's Market on Bethany Home Road and Central Avenue to support local business. Also, don't blame us if you get Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk" song stuck in your head like we did. Andrew's version went a little something like "Uptown Farm you up, I said Uptown Farm you up!". I'm marrying a winner.
