Find Farm-Fresh Produce at the Phoenix Open-Air Market

April 17, 2017 8:00 am

Each Saturday, the Phoenix Open-Air Market invites city residents to venture downtown and stock up on farm-fresh food. Instead of requiring shoppers to actually leave the metropolis in order to secure this freshly plucked fare, the nonprofit behind the Phoenix Open-Air Market helps out both consumers and farmers by creating a space for the market in the heart of Phoenix.

Check out the upcoming market on April 8th to experience everything that your local farmers and artisans have to offer. Abby Lee Farms, for instance, sets up shop with tomatoes, cucumbers, and eggplants, whereas Absolutely Delightful offers up honey and other bee products. Chili Acres sells gluten-free foods alongside goat cheese and fresh eggs, and Crooked Sky farms fills its tables with a rainbow of crisp produce. There's so much more to see at the Phoenix Open-Air Market, so make sure to mark your calendar for an upcoming Saturday.

Take a Tour of Chase Field This Spring

April 1, 2017 6:00 am

Chase Field is more than just a place where the Arizona Diamondbacks—2001 World Champions—come to face off against opponents. The contemporary Major League Baseball stadium is a sight to be seen even when there's not a game going on, which is why the tour at Chase Field promises fun any time of year.

There's a tour date coming up on Saturday, April 1st with tours departing at 9:30 and 11 a.m. as well as 12:30 p.m. Tickets are $7 for adults and $3 for young children (between ages 4 and 6), which is a great deal considering everything you'll get to see over the course of your tour. Stop by one of the in-stadium eateries like Friday's Front Row or The Draft Room, learn all about how the retractable roof provides shade on sunny summer days, and gaze at the dbTV—one of the MLB's biggest high-def scoreboards. Will you be attending a tour this spring?
