Arizona Local Produce

I don’t know about your home, but in our house, finding produce that (a) the kids enjoy and (b) don’t break the bank can be a difficult task, but there is nothing I like more than supporting local produce growers, saving money, and buying local.

Here you can find Arizona Local Produce including “U Pick” Produce Farms, CSA’s, and other local produce programs in the East Valley and throughout Arizona.

  1. Thanks for the great list! We love the backyard farmer too, he is under the produce delivery option. They have lots of other local food items in addition to produce as well like meat, beans, honey, etc.
