This week at the markets…

October 11, 2017

Pears

These gorgeous Starkrimson Red Pears will be at the Uptown Wednesday farmers’ market tomorrow.  I had one and they are incredible, really flavorful and sweet.  We will also have Rosa Lynn apples and these beautiful Mandurian Round Cucumbers pictured below.  These cucumbers are sweeter and crunchier than normal cucumbers with a fuzzy texture that rinses right off.  We are so happy to be back at the markets and catching up with everyone!  See you tomorrow!

Sunrise

McClendon’s Select and Noble Bread are getting ready for the return of the farmers’ markets in October.  Mark your calendars, we will both be back at the Uptown Wednesday market on Weds., Oct. 4th and the Old Town Scottsdale market on Saturday, October 7th.

Sean has been busy cultivating and transplanting at both farms to get ready for the fall harvest.  Onions, beets, carrots, garlic… all are going in the ground.  We are looking forward to having a full bounty ready for you in the fall.

And… both McClendon’s Select and Noble Bread are in need of friendly cashiers to work the farmers’ markets.  Cashiers would be needed every Wednesday and Saturday, starting the beginning of October through the end of the market season next summer.  Requirements and responsibilities for the job include:

-Ability to efficiently ring up customers, identifying items and prices quickly, make change, and carefully bag produce.

-Being at the markets from 7:30am to 1:30pm, to help with both set up and tear down.

-Standing during the market hours, and some light lifting during set up and tear down.

-Provide own transportation to the Wednesday markets at Bethany Home Road and Central Avenue and the Saturday markets at First Street and Brown in Scottsdale.

For inquires and more information about the cashier positions, please send e-mails to info@mcclendonsselect.com.  Please put “CASHIER POSITION” in the subject line.

Thank you.  We look forward to seeing you next month!

Saturdays at Uptown…

June 23, 2017

John’s Amish Country is your summer go-to for fresh organic fruits and veggies for the rest of the summer season.  John’s Amish will have all of your summer favorites from McClendon’s Select at the Uptown Saturday markets.  And with the market now moved indoors, you get to enjoy farmers markets during the summer without the summer heat. Tomorrow at the Uptown Saturday market John’s Amish will have a beautiful selection of heirloom tomatoes at special pricing right now from McClendon’s Select.  The tomatoes are at the height of their season right now and are so wonderfully flavorful.  There will also be a selection of yellow seedless watermelons, fresh basil and cucumbers, along with a whole host of other organic goodies from the farm.  Head to Uptown on Saturdays for your summer shopping!

Last Wednesday of the season…

Tomorrow will be the last Wednesday market for McClendon’s Select for the season.  We will be at Uptown; however, due to the heat advisory, the market will only run until 11:00am.  We will still be bringing plenty of summer goodies with us, including watermelon, heirloom tomatoes, summer squash, basil and the last of the organic sweet corn, along with all sorts of our packaged items to stock up on for the summer.

John’s Amish Country will continue to sell McClendon’s Select produce at the Uptown Saturday markets, which have moved inside for the duration of the summer so you can enjoy the air-conditioning.  The Uptown Saturday market is now in Building B at the North Phoenix Baptist Church.  This is the only indoor farmers’ market in the valley and along with John’s Amish there are a number of other vendors who will be attending, so you can enjoy the full market for shopping.

McClendon’s Select will return to our regular schedule this fall.  We will post our opening dates for Uptown Wednesdays and Saturdays in Old Town Scottsdale on the blog and social media.  We thank you all for your continued support of our farm throughout the season.  You are what makes this possible year after year and we can’t wait to return in the fall.  Until then, stay cool and enjoy your summer!

Yellow watermelon…

watermelon2.jpgTomorrow at the Uptown Saturday Farmers Market there will be these beautiful organic yellow watermelon.  These are so sweet and delicious, and most have few to no seeds. You have to try them.  John’s Amish Country will be bringing these along with a beautiful selection of heirloom tomatoes and organic sweet corn, everything you need for a colorful summer spread.

And good news… the Uptown Saturday Farmers Market will be moving indoors tomorrow.  Just in time to avoid the heatwave, the market will be inside from 8:00am to noon, so you can shop in the only air conditioned farmers market in the valley.  The Uptown market will remain inside Building B at the North Phoenix Baptist Church on Saturdays throughout the rest of the summer.

Come stop by Uptown tomorrow!

Shishitos at the market…

The Shishito peppers are now in season and bigger than before.  These peppers are my summer go to appetizer.  Easy and quick to sautéed or grill, they only need a little sprinkle of sea salt and are then ready to serve.  We will also have a large selection of those wonderful heirloom tomatoes and organic sweet corn that were a hit last week. Stop by the Uptown Wednesday market tomorrow to pick some up!
