Here at Chow Bella, we understand how important it is to give (and receive) the perfect foodie gift. So this season, we're helping out by offering 21 food- and drink-focused gift suggestions, one each work day until Christmas, from a local business or provider. You get scads of rock-star ideas, the dollars stay in the Valley, and we get to go shopping -- win, win, win!
4: Locally Made Goodies All in One Place at Phoestivus Market
|Studio Artology's recylced journals made from food packaging are one of several unique gifts.|
Locally made gifts are great, but with Christmas so close, who's got time to run all over the Valley and hope to find the perfect present?
Not many, that's who. Good thing the Second Annual Phoestivus Market is going on tomorrow, December 21, from 4 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., at the Urban Grocery and Wine Bar in Downtown Phoenix.
Just in time for last-minute local shopping, the market will feature locally grown or produced food, drinks, and handcrafted gifts in addition to some Seinfeld-esque activities. Keep reading for additional details and a list of vendors.
At tomorrow's Phoestivus Market, the first 100 attendees will receive a free Phoestivus Goodie Bag, a gift wrapping station will be part of the scene, and if you get the shopping munchies, several food trucks will be on hand to put the pep back in your shopping step.
For more details and a full list of vendors, go here.
