Things to Do in Scottsdale AZ: Another Beautiful Saturday in Old Town Scottsdale
Here is a Guest Post from Joyce Tawes - Associate Broker - Realty ONE Group Scottsdale
Another beautiful day in Scottsdale and a return visit to the Farmers' Market in Old Town Scottsdale
Many of the winter visitors to Scottsdale have headed home as witnessed by the thinning crowds on the streets of Old Town. With that said, there was still a huge turnout for the weekly Saturday morning Downtown Scottsdale Farmers' Market. On this visit, I noted more booths with tantalizing foods for tasting or lunch as well as a larger variety of baked goods.
we strolled through the market we had several opportunities to stop and
chat with the vendors. I enjoy doing this, as I always learn something
new. For instance, a local honey maker showed us an article
on the demise of honey bees due to a pesticide being used on corn that
was developed in Europe. He commented that one of the local growers had
lost his entire colony of honey-producing bees due to the pesticide.
He’s promised to give me a full tutorial on my next visit down with
photos and articles to describe what is going on.
There was also a new booth filled with small containers of succulent plants and cacti.
Susan Tyrrel doesn’t have a store and sells her plants out of her home
and at Farmers' Markets. I thought you’d enjoy seeing some of the
smaller plants in full bloom. They are great to put on a small table,
or transplant into your garden where they will add a little color at
this time of the year.
You can’t go to the Farmers Market without a stroll through the courtyard of Bischoff’s Shades of the West located
across the street. heir gardens are lush and shaded and I couldn’t
resist sharing photos of some of their wonderful sculptures. We
finished off with a quick tour of the Old Scottsdale Schoolhouse and headed home. Another great day!
