Where to buy organic produce
Almost every day of the week, visitors and residents alike descend on farmers markets throughout Arizona for just-picked-from-the farm organic produce, fresh-baked breads and desserts, organic herbs, flowers and fun crafts items.
Bob McClennan’s farm produce is the big star here. A former pharmacist turned organic grocer, Bob provides some of the freshest produce in town, all grown without pesticides. He supplies many of Arizona’s most exclusive restaurants with first-rate, organic ingredients, so you know you’re getting the very best.
