What We Bought:
Heather Hoch We got plenty of bang for our buck straight from the farm this week.
Singh Farms' weekly market is usually a great stop to load up on farm-fresh veggies and get away from urban burnout without really leaving the city. The whimsical little flora-filled farm off of Loop 101 at Thomas Road feels like a step into another time and place. This weekend, some of our favorite grabs were seasonal artichokes, which were 50 cents apiece or $8 for marinated chokes. We also had to get some oranges, which were $10 for 10, and a loaf of gorgeous fresh-baked marble rye bread for $5.
Greens, such as kale, spinach, chard and arugula, were a steal at $2 per bunch, and no farmers market that we've seen offers cheaper eggs than $3 per dozen, which is what Singh offers. Finally, we grabbed some super-huge bunches of fennel and leeks, which were also only $2. In terms of value, ambiance and quality, Singh Farms has got to easily be one of the top markets in Phoenix -- plus they're open through the summer!
