Flagstaff’s annual community market is back. Beginning May 26, every Sunday from 8 a.m. to noon, the farmers of the surrounding Flagstaff area will sell their goods to the public.

Various vendors sell their goods to people who enjoy eating organic foods not infused with hormones or shipped halfway around the globe before reaching the dinner table. The festivities begin bright and early at 8 a.m. in the City Hall west parking lot on the corner of North Sitgreaves Street and Route 66.

Rain or shine, people gather outside to converse and shop for groceries. The regulars usually become friendly with the vendors as well and it’s a great way to ask questions about how each vendor grows their food and prepare their personal recipes.

If you are in Flagstaff for the summer and hope to get out of the house, visit the community market. Even if you don’t buy anything, it’s a perfect way to connect with other Flagstaff residents.
