Easter Weekend…

March 25, 2016


McClendon’s Select will be at the Old Town Farmers’ Market tomorrow with a huge selection for your Easter brunch.  There will be a rainbow of colors from the farm to liven up your table.  We will have a beautiful organic strawberries, a wonderful selection of fresh greens including baby spinach, baby lettuces, arugula, kales and chards, and medium-sized bunches of beets with gorgeous tops in red, gold, white and striped.

And, also good news, we checked and there will not be a home spring training game at the Scottsdale Stadium, meaning that the parking will be much easier than some of the previous weekends.

Come early and enjoy the gorgeous weather – and have a great weekend!  See you tomorrow!

No Scottsdale Market this week

February 12, 2016


There will be no Old Town Farmers Market tomorrow in Scottsdale.  Due to the Parada del Sol parade the City of Scottsdale has closed the market this weekend.  John’s Amish Country will be selling McClendon’s Select produce at the Uptown Saturday Market at the North Phoenix Baptist Church off of Central Avenue and Bethany Home Road from 8:00am – 1:00pm.  You will also be able to find Noble Bread at the Uptown Saturday market as well.

We will be back to our normal market schedule next week.  Have a good weekend and Happy Valentine’s Day!

The Farmer’s Table

February 2, 2016

Quiessence at The Farm at South Mountain is presenting “The Farmer’s Table” dinner on Sunday, February 28th for a farm-to-table celebration of Arizona’s bounty.  The evening will include a five course menu from Chef Dustin Christofolo featuring proteins from Two Wash Ranch and produce from McClendon’s Select paired with Arizona wines.  Chef Christofolo wanted to present the beautiful items we grow and give those attending a chance to talk with the farmers and learn more about the seasonal items prepared.  We will be attending along with two of our favorite people, Dave Jordan and Nikki Buchanan, from Two Wash Ranch.

If you have not yet had a chance to visit Quiessence, this would be a perfect opportunity.  Long heralded as one of the most romantic restaurants in the Valley, Quiessence is a quiet respite far removed from the louder tempos of the city.  Nestled in a pecan grove near South Mountain, a visit to Quiessence feels like you have been transported.  The restaurant was formerly a farm house from the 1920s that has kept its historic Arizona charm while offering world-class dining.  Sean and I have celebrated anniversaries there and can attest that it is the perfect setting for a special occasion.

McClendon’s Select is honored to be part of Quiessence’s “The Farmer’s Table” and hope that you will be able to join us.  The evening will begin with hors d’oeuvres during sunset at 5:30pm with the five course dinner to follow at 6:00pm.  For more details about the event and a preview of the evening’s menu, you may visit Quiessence’s website here.  Reservations are limited, to reserve your seats please call 602.276.0601.

Rain or shine…

January 6, 2016


There will be light showers tomorrow; however, rain or shine we will be at the Uptown Farmers Market.  How can we not?  Look what we were picking today for you.  See you tomorrow at market!


Back to the markets…

December 29, 2015


McClendon’s Select is back to our normal market schedule this week.  We will be back at Uptown tomorrow morning and at the Old Town Scottsdale market on Saturday.  We are bringing truckloads with us to help you make good on those clean eating New Year’s resolutions.  There will be beautiful, organic broccolini that have stems that taste as good as the florets.  The organic spring garlic is a very mild, fresh garlic that can be used in a number of ways from raw to roasted.  We will also have all sorts of beautiful fresh picked greens and plenty of citrus right from the trees.

Happy New Year to you and yours!




Merry Christmas!

McClendon’s Select will be at the Uptown Wednesday farmers’ market tomorrow morning with everything you need for your holiday cooking.  We will be bringing a huge selection and Noble Bread will be with us as well, so make sure to stop by and stock up on any breakfast pastries you may need too.

The Old Town Scottsdale market will be closed this Saturday, but we will return to our normal market schedule next week.

We will also have the Boy Scouts with us for Boy Scout Carry Out tomorrow to raise money for Aidan McClendon’s Eagle Scout project.  We have had two wonderful Saturdays with the scouts helping customers in Scottsdale and they are excited to come to the Uptown market.  Aidan has been so grateful for all of the support and it has been fun having the scouts with us at the markets. So if you are loaded up with everything you need for your holiday cooking tomorrow have a scout help you out.  They are ready to work!

We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow and we wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

And don’t forget, tomorrow we will have Boy Scout Carry Out again to support Aidan’s Eagle Scout project.  Thank you for all of the support last Saturday.  The boys had a great time and Aidan truly appreciated the kind words and support from our customers.  We have the best customers.  The boys will be there again tomorrow morning to help you carry out your produce and groceries.  Put those kids to work!

Merry Christmas!  We hope you have a wonderful holiday and we look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
