Here is a listing of farmers' markets in the Greater Phoenix area that are open on Thursdays. The growers are mostly organic and pesticide free, are local and the produce is vine-ripe and highly nutritious. In addition to produce, the farmers' markets often feature value added locally made food items such as jams & jellies, salsas, dips, baked goods of all kinds, herbs and handicrafts. Sometimes there are chef demonstrations and entertainment.
Be aware that farmers' markets are not like retailers where you might typically shop. Some vendors may only accept cash. You might want to bring your own bags. You might have to be flexible -- farmers' markets come and go or just change schedules based on weather, holidays or levels of business.
