Saturday is a day the homeowner tends to go shopping, particularly if there's a special place to do it.  And there is.

Sited in a parking lot at Yavapai College, the Prescott Farmers Market is large and very popular.

Locally home-grown vegetables from small farms are the main draw.

But you can also buy your own herb plants here.

Or how about this: artichoke blooms.

There are also products to satisfy your sweet tooth.

You can buy flowers here.

Or consider adopting a dog.

Or just spend your time people-watching.

(Those two colorful costumes caught my eye.)

If this all gets to be too much for you, you can even get a relaxing massage.

The farmers are a bit secretive about their various growing techniques.  One even had a slogan for it.

No day at an event in Prescott is complete without a little music.  So here you go.

Hey, maybe I'll see you next week at the Farmers Market!


  1. It looks like a lovely day and a great place to while away a few hours.

  2. Everything looks so good. Is "Molly's Tamales" wagon back this year? Her pork burritos are possibly the best in town.

  3. What a sweet piece of Arizona! Farmer's markets are a wonderful part of a community. Lovely.

  4. That is one very big Farmer's Market. Crooked Sky Farms sells down here too!

  5. That's one fine set of edible produce, and canine and human interest.

  6. It all looks glorious and delicious. I love a good market.

  7. The market seems huge as huge as the radishes! And I have never been patient enough to wait for the artichokes to bloom, we always ate them before due time.
    Lucky you!
