There is a Farmers’ Market that meets every Thursday in Chandler Park. It’s located between Boston Street and Arizona Avenue, Chandler, AZ. The market is open from 3 to 7 p.m., October through May. More than 40 vendors have signed up to sell goods at the market, including fresh produce (organic and non-organic), salsas, apple butter and tamales.
Some of the newest vendors include Made By Bees of Gilbert and Burning Asphalt of Queen Creek. Made By Bees sells raw honey, fruit butters, relish pickles, bee pollen, honeycomb and granola. Burning Asphalt sells barbecue sauces, ketchups, mustards, popcorn seasonings and spices.
I’ve visited this Farmers’ Market myself. It’s a bit pricey, but if you are looking for local fresh produce it’s well worth the expense.
