One of our favorite things at the Market is the fact we get to meet the growers and producers, ask questions and learn how our foods and products are grown and made. Traceability is important, we should know where our food comes from just the same we like to know it’s organic. We should be able to see and understand the food chain and what we’re buying and consuming.
Look our new for the Locally Sourced badge at the Market!
Vendors offering products featuring more than 50% locally-sourced ingredients are being awarded “Phoenix Public Market Approved” badges. In addition to the nutritional and health benefits, choosing these products keeps even more money in the local economy, leading to a healthier sustainable community.
We have power as consumers and where we choose to use our spending power makes an impact! When you choose to shop local you support.
