Best Farmers' Market

St. Philip's Plaza

Coming from across Southern Arizona, the two dozen vendors at St. Philip's offer a cornucopia of items. In season, there is produce like tomatoes, corn and beans from a grower who drives up from Cochise, where he farms 40 irrigated acres. Rod's KC Barbecue offers delicious chickens and smoked salmon, while a knife sharpener tools his trade. Other choices include nuts, honey and bees' wax, along with homemade breads and foods from both Bolivia and Argentina. There are even unique plants and herbs available for the shopper to take home to grow in their own garden. Held every Sunday from 8 a.m. until noon. Unlike Eliot Ness and his men, the merchandise at this farmer's market is certainly touchable.
