A quick drive from Vive is a destination that offers locally grown produce and so much more.
We're talking about the Gilbert Farmers Market, and it's nestled just west of the iconic water tower.
It's open every Saturday, and vendors include:
Blue Sky Organic Farms
When David Vose started working as a chef, he also wanted to farm. After spending years in the kitchen learning about quality ingredients, he established Blue Sky Organic Farms in 1995. It's certified organic, and all of the produce is cultivated in accordance to federal standards. Depending on the season, the selection may include artichokes, cucumbers, and strawberries.
Crooked Sky Farms
It was in 1994 when Frank Martin quit his trucking job to pursue his dream of becoming a farmer. That's how Crooked Sky Farms was born, and he embraces the teachings of his father who was a Native American migrant farm worker. Frank's offerings include kale, heirloom tomatoes, and Purple Majesty potatoes.
AZ Fine Swine Mangalitsas
AZ Fine Swine Mangalitsas is owned by a fifth generation farm family, and their mission is to offer the world's tastiest pork. They are the only Mangalitsa breeder in the state, and their products are known for having a tender texture and buttery flavor.
After Carolyn Feller retired from teaching, she decided to make preserves. Her friends enjoyed her creations, and she soon began selling them at farmers markets. She produces the jellies and jams in a commercial kitchen, and her husband is her only employee. He helps with jarring and labeling, and flavors include merry berry, kiwi, and fig.
