McClendon’s Select will be at both the Uptown Saturday market and the Old Town Scottsdale Farmers market tomorrow morning.  At our Scottsdale market we are bringing this beautiful organic Purple Passion asparagus, which is sure to be a hit at your Easter brunch. Purple Passion asparagus is a rare variety that is sweeter and more tender than the green, and truly one of the most beautiful things that we grow.  There will also be plenty of green asparagus at both markets.  That it is ready for harvest just in time for Easter makes it all the more perfect!

See you tomorrow at the markets and have a wonderful weekend!

Rainbow Chard

This beautiful Rainbow chard is from our second planting.  The color is so beautiful and the sweet, earthy flavor is a bit milder than spinach and goes so well with any number of dishes. With big tender leaves and crunch, colorful stalks, our organic Rainbow Chard is a stand out this spring.

I’itoi Onions

Our organic i’Itoi onions have amazing quality this spring.  They have a mild, shallot-like bulb and slightly spicy green.  They first propagated here by Tohono O’odham people, these onions have a long history in this region and pair well with local dishes.  These bunch onions were brought to this continent by the Franciscan Padres from Spain in the 1600’s and are listed on Slo Foods Ark of Taste.  Use the green tops as well as the bulb bottoms.  Genetically they are natures cross between a shallot and a green onion.

Orange Blossoms

Spring is here and with it comes the orange blossoms.  The bees are making the most of the season, working through our citrus groves to make their wonderful orange blossom honey.  Local honey has so many health benefits from countering pollen allergies to working as a powerful antioxidant, that it tastes so much better than anything you can buy in the store almost makes it too good to be real.

See you tomorrow at the markets!

St. Patrick’s Day Cabbage…

March 16, 2018


Tomorrow for St. Patrick’s Day we will have this beautiful organic cabbage ready for you, along with plenty of potatoes, carrots and onions for any celebratory dishes you may be making.  There will also be an abundance of sugar snap peas available.

We are also bringing our new organic lavender soap to the market.  This newest addition to our soap line is a new formulation and is really nice.  The smell of lavender is pleasant, but mild enough so that it is not overwhelming or too cloying.  I have been loyal to the peppermint for years, but this is my new favorite.  Try one for yourself tomorrow.

See you at the market!

Tomorrow at Uptown…

March 13, 2018

See you tomorrow at the market!

Sugar Snap Peas…

March 9, 2018


The Sugar Snap Peas have just begun harvest today and will be at the Old Town Scottsdale farmers market tomorrow morning.  This first picking is wonderful.  They are tender and lightly sweet and, if history serves, will be wildly popular tomorrow morning.  So make sure to come early to pick some up.  We will also have some beautiful baby mixed colored carrots and baby round carrots, along with baby Batavian lettuce heads.  See you at the market tomorrow!
