The Sedona Farmer’s Market takes place every Friday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Airport Mesa lookout. I visited it for the first time last week and was super impressed with the incredible selection of fresh produce and a million other goodies. I took home some yummy tamales, vibrant sunflowers, “ta die for” homemade banana bread from Lisa Dahl of Dahl & DiLuca and scrumptious red potatoes from a local farm. I also tried a Chocolate Peanutbutter Crepe at the Crepe Stand and the best vanilla milkshake I’ve ever had in my life. The offerings change up every week so read ahead for the latest Press Release from the Farmer’s Market on what to look for tomorrow morning! Hope to see you there!
