Are YOU ready for a sweet adventure ? I certainly was as I made my way out to the Phoenix Public Market after I finally managed to get a Saturday off from work. Unfortunately, it was unbelievably “musty” outside to the point that personally, I did not stay as long as probably would have if it was a cooler/more clear day out. Nevertheless, I did manage to hunt down some sweet goods that I wanted to share here – imagine me saying this in my wanna-be animal explorer-like voice-. Let’s just delve right into this adventure sweetplorers:
Peanut Butter Americano: as much as I am sure most of us are used to the typical creamy or crunchy peanut butter sold in our groceries stores, Peanut Butter Americano takes the peanut butter game to an whole other level. I mean Cinnamon Honey…Choco Blanco…yes we are talking about kinds of peanut butter!
Main Squeeze Lemonade: I had visited this place last year ( so, I want to say) and I just had to revisit and try some of their Strawberry Lemonade again. They specialize in lemonade that is natural & yes, delicious. They have Watermelon, Old Fashioned, Strawberry, Pineapple AND MANGO -woo-
Heavenly Bites: I had never seen this place at the market before but it has been forever since I have gotten a chance to come so that’s no surprise. This place makes sweet things that not only taste good but that is good for you ( Organic & Healthy) :
Next, the Arizona Bread Company ( based in Scottsdale, I want to say) is a vendor that I have visited before and frankly, one can definetely appreciate their prices. Today, they had doughnuts and I kid you not, the largest cinnamon roll ( and one of the best deals) I have ever seen. I just picked up a buttermilk glaze ( so good & thick) doughnut for 1.75!
I noticed a place called Breezy Pops when I entered into the Phoenix Public Market and apparently, they offer natural ice pops; ” Latin American style”. From their Juicy Strawberry to their Sweet & Sour Lemon to the Creamy Horchata, it reminded me of Paletta’s Betty but a different spin, of course.
For me, the BEST part of the Phoenix Public Market is open not just when the market is open but every day, the Phoenix Public Market Cafe. I had visited it for the first time a few weeks ago and I was really impressed with their portion sizes ( huuge), quality of food and the unique environment. Upon walking in the side door, I was greeted by these delicious looking cinnamon rolls and then a beautiful array of bakery cookies, cake, Macaroons, homemade poptarts and more! Unfortunately, their treats are a bit on the pricier range but every once in a while, I am sure it is worth paying for!
Overall, I love the idea of supporting local businesses which is why I can always appreciate the Farmer’s Market. Unfortunately in the heat and due to the musty conditions today, I could not fully enjoy it to it’s full potential ( that and another reason that I won’t mention) but if I can revisit, I surely will. There were more vendors there that I am sure I could have taken note and I am sure many more of a variety of vendors that come depending on the Saturday that one goes but this is what I got when I went 🙂
Hope you guys enjoyed this little short, but sweet adventure. See you on Wednesday!
