The Perfect Day to Eat Your Veggies!

17 June 2017
It’s ‘Eat Your Vegetables’ day today, and how better to do that than at the Prescott Farmer’s Market?

The Prescott Farmer’s Market is celebrating 20 years in the community, offering fresh, local produce and goods. Booths are set up at the Yavapai College parking lot on Saturdays from 7:30 - Noon during the summer. 

If You Go:

What: Prescott Farmer’s Market
Who: Local ranchers, farmers, artists and craftsmen
When: Saturdays 
Time: 7:30 - Noon (May - October)
Where: Yavapai College Parking Lot (May - October)
Cost: Free admission, but be prepared to purchase yummy local produce and goods

In addition to amazing - and often unusual - vegetables and fresh fruit, the Prescott Farmer’s Market brings local meats, baked goods and artistry. Typically, there is also live music. 

According to the Prescott Farmer’s Market website, the vendors are “producer-only” which means that they must grow or raise everything they sell within Arizona. For those offering processed foods and crafts, everything sold at the Market must use a certain percentage of Arizona-grown ingredients. Farmers and ranchers from Yavapai County are given preference.

Can’t get to the Prescott Farmer’s Market? No worries. Prescott Valley’s Farmer’s Market is held on Tuesdays from 2-6 PM at the Harkins Theatre; and Chino Valley is held on Thursdays at Olsen’s Grain from 3-6 PM. Specific locations and times can be found on their website. 

The times and locations provided are for the summer markets.
