Just because summer is near doesn't mean you have to give up on local produce and grass fed beef. It also doesn't mean you have to go to Whole Foods to get them. There are several farmers markets around town that will stay open during the hot months and we've gone ahead and gathered up a list of their locations and hours.

Here are nine farmers markets that will stay open this summer.

Old Town Scottsdale Farmer's Market

During summer the Old Town Scottsdale market will switch to earlier hours, open from 7 to 11 a.m. every Saturday. Located at approximately 3815 N. Brown Ave -- in the parking lot at the corner of Brown and 1st Street In the Old Town Scottsdale -- this market is definitely one of the biggest and best in the Valley.

Downtown Phoenix Open Air Markets

Ahwatukee Farmer's Market on 48th street and Warner is open year-round every Sunday. Right now, they are open from 9am to 1pm.  Their summer hours start June 1 and it will be 8am to 11am.  Come and check out many great vendors including local produce and products!

Thanks for including Tempe Community Market in the story! It will be open all summer on Sundays from 8 to noon (starting June 8) under the shade of the 202 bridge! For now, it's still open from 8 to 1.

To clarify The Town & Country Market is in deed open year-round. McClendon's last week the last Wednesday of June and he usually returns first week of October. There are lots of greet vendors including produce, sprouts and more that stick around through the summer. Lots of great restaurants and there is a Trader Joe's and Whole Foods at the center.
