Uptown Wednesdays starting next week…

McClendon’s Select is getting ready to return to the Uptown Wednesday market next week on October 7th.  We have a huge selection of beautiful produce ready for harvest at both of our farms.  And, we have a new batch of market totes that we just received that are bigger and roomier than our previous tote bags with sturdy rope handles, but will still be available for just $7.

These bags are made in India from a non-profit business that supplies microloans to women-owned businesses in developing countries.  These bags are lead free, fair-trade compliant, and made from 100% organic cotton.  I love that the bags are helping empower women while also helping save the planet from more plastic bags.  Make sure to get your bags soon, as we tend to sell out of our market totes pretty quickly.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone next week at the Uptown Wednesday market and we will be back in Scottsdale on Saturdays starting October 17th.

Fall Markets coming up!

McClendon's Select

McClendon’s Select has been feverishly planting getting ready for the fall market season.  Every day for the next two months we have all sorts of seedlings going into the ground to get us started at the markets and to carry us through until winter planting. (Fall sweet corn will be making a return this November!) And as the weather finally starts to dip below triple digits, we are excited to get ready to return to the markets. McClendon’s Select will be returning to the Uptown Market at Bethany Home Road and Central on Wednesday, October 7th and will then start back at the Old Town Scottsdale Farmers’ Market on Saturday, October 17th.

But, the good news is that you don’t have to wait that long to start stocking up on organic produce from our farm.  Please look for John at Uptown this Saturday, he will have beautiful summer squash, okra, Armenian cucumbers, arugula and baby mixed greens and baby spinach from the farm.  As well, organic apple season has begun and you can get the first of the season apples starting this Saturday.

As well, we would like to help out our friends at Southern Rail.  Chef Justin Beckett has created a beautiful “farm to bagel” locally inspired breakfast item for the Thomas Hometown Breakfast Battle using seasonal, organic produce from our farm.  Chef Beckett is all about supporting local and wants to help promote Arizona’s farm community nationally.  This bagel looks as delicious as it does beautiful and you can also find the recipe on the voting site.  You can vote once a day at http://tinyurl.com/VoteBeckett.  Voters also have the chance to personally win $10,000.  Give a little voting support to Chef Beckett and his team at Southern Rail!

We can’t wait to see everyone again at the farmers’ markets!!

Saturdays in the summer…

July 10, 2015

For the first time during a summer McClendon’s Select produce will be available at a farmers’ market. John’s Amish Country has been selling our organic produce at the Saturday Uptown markets. During the summer months, the Uptown Market has moved indoors at the North Phoenix Baptist Church off of Central and Bethany Home Road. We are thrilled to be able to continue providing produce to the market during the summer months. Thanks to our partnership with the Cancer Treatment Centers of America and the land we are farming at their site, we have a larger offering now during the summer months than we had previously.

John’s Amish Country has been bringing produce from our farm to the Uptown Saturday markets this past year and has done a lovely job of working with customers. Tomorrow at the market he will have with him a beautiful assortment of heirloom tomatoes, okra, summer squash, cucumbers and beautiful fresh greens, among other summer goodies from the farm.  We are delighted to still be able to provide produce during the summer and hope that you are able to stop by and see John and the other vendors.  The market will be open from 8:00am to noon.

We hope you are having a wonderful summer!

Last market of the season…

Tomorrow is the last farmers’ market of the season for McClendon’s Select.  We will be at the Uptown Wednesday tomorrow from 8:00am to noon with all sorts of beautiful heirloom tomatoes.  The beauty above was picked yesterday and weighed in a three pounds.  (And was… delicious!)  We will also have fresh organic corn that is being harvested as I type, and organic mini watermelons called “Solitaire” that are a beautiful bright red inside and so sweet and refreshing.

During the rest of the summer John’s Amish Country will be selling McClendon’s Select produce at the Uptown Saturday farmers’ market.  For our Scottsdale customers who are unfamiliar, the market is located at the North Phoenix Baptist Church, on the southeast corner off of Central and Bethany Home Roads.  The Saturday market is open from 8:00am to noon and will be moved indoors this summer so you may enjoy the air conditioning while you shop.  John’s Amish Country will have a selection of fresh produce from our farm throughout the rest of the summer.

McClendon’s Select will be back at the Uptown Wednesday market the first Wednesday of October.  We want to thank all of our customers for your continued support of our farm.  We are truly grateful to get to do what we do and we have the best customers who help make that possible!  We hope that you have a wonderful summer.  Stay cool… we will see you in the fall!

Two more left….

Next Wednesday, June 24th, is the last Uptown Farmers’ Market for McClendon’s Select and for the rest of the Wednesday vendors for the season. The market will continue to run thru the summer indoors (with air conditioning!) on Saturdays. And, for the first time during the summer, you will be able to find McClendon’s Select produce at the Saturday Uptown market from John’s Amish Country.

So, with just two markets left in the season, come out early tomorrow for the wonderful sweet corn and the first of the field grown heirloom tomatoes that are coming off of the vine.  These are two of my summer favorites and their flavors are incredible.  We will be open from 8:00am to noon.  If you have insulated bags or an ice chest in your car you may want to bring them, they will keep your produce fresher.  See you at Uptown!IMG_4828

It’s that time of year…

This Saturday, May 16th will be the last market for McClendon’s Select at the Old Town Farmers’ Market location for the season.  We want to thank all of our wonderful Saturday market customers in Scottsdale for your continued support.

We will continue to be at the Uptown Wednesday location at the North Phoenix Baptist Church located on Central Avenue and Bethany Home Road on Wednesdays through June 24th.  As well, John’s Amish Country will be selling produce from our farm at the Uptown market on Saturdays at the same location all summer long.  The Saturday Uptown market will be moving indoors, stay tuned and we will let you know when that happens.  But for the first time our produce will be available throughout the summer at a market thanks to John’s Amish Country.  Please go support him and the other Uptown Market vendors this summer.

McClendon’s Select will return to the Old Town market in Scottsdale again this fall and will post the dates in advance on this blog and our Facebook page.  We wish you all a wonderful summer and hope you stay cool!
