Wigwam Farmers Market

Sundays 9am-1pm, November-April 2014 ~ Wigwam Resort, Litchfield Park, AZ          

The Wigwam Farmer's Market offers an ideal opportunity to purchase certified organic produce directly from local farmers while enjoying a Sunday morning on the beautiful grounds of the historic Wigwam Resort in Litchfield Park, Arizona. The open-air Farmer's Market takes place every Sunday from October through April and has become a gathering place where locals and visitors alike can experience the vivid colors, joyful sounds and tantalizing aromas while shopping for fresh cut flowers, freshly harvested produce, fresh baked goods and a vast assortment of cottage edibles.Details & Info:The high quality of produce and the open-air experience top the list of patron's reasons for shopping at a local Farmer's Market. People get hooked on grower markets for all kinds of reasons, but one of the most basic is that they offer the freshest food you can get, next to harvesting it yourself. They allow the Farmer's to pick produce at the peak of flavor, preserving the nutritional content of fresh produce.

In addition to the many social and economic benefits that accrue to the communities in which they occur, Farmer's Markets give Farmers a chance to experiment with new and old-fashioned varieties of fruits and vegetables not grown commercially. Moreover, Farmers can afford to wait until fruit is tree-ripened, before picking and bringing to market. Ripe fruit is unacceptable to commercial produce-brokers, because it won't withstand the stresses of shipping and storage as it passes through commercial marketing channels.These markets have become direct outlets for many home based businesses and cottage industries such as jellies, honeys, sauces and baked goods. Buying locally works to sustain a thriving economy for local farmers, ranchers, and small businessman. Many communities are finding that promoting local markets is good for economic development and tourism.
