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!

Tomorrow will be our last Scottsdale farmers’ market of 2015.  Come early to stock up for all of your holiday cooking.  The market will be closed on December 26th, but we will all return on Saturday, January 2nd.

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!

Boy Scout Carry Out!

December 11, 2015


This is a lot going on around both farms right now.  This beautiful Rainbow Chard was just picked at our farm in Goodyear.  And check out all of the seedlings in the greenhouse in Peoria…


All sorts of baby celery, cauliflower and salad greens starting to come up.  These will be going in the ground soon.



Starting this weekend at the Old Town Scottsdale Farmers’ Market, Aidan McClendon will be working with friends from his Boy Scout troop to offer Boy Scout Carry Out for our customers.  Aidan is raising money for his Eagle Scout project to provide kids in the Arizona foster care system with duffel bags and personal items including toiletries, pillows and blankets.

The scouts will be helping shoppers getting their produce and groceries from the markets to their cars.  They will be at the following markets over the next few weeks…

Old Town Scottsdale Farmer’s Market
Saturday, December 12th 8:00am – 1:00pm
Saturday, December 19th 8:00am – 1:00pm
Saturday, January 9th 8:00am – 1:00pm

Uptown Farmers’ Market
Wednesday, December 23rd 8:00am – 1:00pm

To learn more about Aidan’s project, you can read about it on his GoFundMe page, the link is here.  Have a Scout help you out!


Uptown this Wednesday!

November 24, 2015


McClendon’s Select is so very grateful for all of our loyal market customers and the wonderful restaurants that have supported us through out the year.  Thanksgiving is a special time for us since it is a day about sharing food with those you love the most.  It speaks to the heart of what we do and we are grateful to be a part of so many Thanksgiving dinners.

Tomorrow McClendon’s Select will be at Uptown Wednesday market bright and early opening at 8:00am with everything you need for your Thanksgiving dinner.  There will be a full selection of potatoes, yams, squash, greens, carrots and cranberries, along with so much more, including beautiful herb bundles Marsha has put together to help with your cooking.   We are also bringing freshly harvested Extra Fancy Jumbo Organic Medjool Dates, which have become a favorite snack around here.  They are so sweet – and would make a nice addition to a cheese plate or appetizer before your meal.


Make sure to come early. If you have been to our market before Thanksgiving before then you know that it is one of our busiest.

We will not be at the Old Town Scottsdale Farmer’s Market this Saturday, November 28th in order to allow our employees to enjoy time with their own families; however, the market will still be open and we hope that you visit and support the vendors while out doing your holiday shopping. We will return to the Old Town market on Saturday, December 5th.

We would like to wish all of our customers a truly wonderful Thanksgiving and to say a sincere thank you for your continued support.

Happy Thanksgiving!

The McClendon Family

Veteran’s Day tomorrow!

November 10, 2015


Tomorrow, Wednesday, November 11th, the Veteran’s Day Parade will be held on Central Avenue at 11:00am.  However, the preparations for the parade will be beginning much earlier and the staging will be held in the parking lot of the North Phoenix Baptist Church.

The Uptown Wednesday Market will still be held tomorrow during the usual hours of 8:00am to 1:00pm; however, to accommodate the parade preparations, the market will be moved to the northeast section of the parking lot, where it is normally held on Saturdays.  Central Road will be closed off at Bethany Home Road; although east-west traffic will still be able to drive along Bethany Home Road.  The market will be accessible from the Bethany Home Road entrance.

We hope to see you tomorrow and while you are in the area make sure to check out the parade and honor the veterans who have served!

Sweet Corn tomorrow!

October 23, 2015

Sweet Corn

McClendon’s Select will be back at the Scottsdale Old Town Famers’ Market tomorrow from 8:00am to 1:00pm and will be bringing the first of our fall sweet corn.  The corn is so sweet and delicious.  We are excited to be able to harvest it earlier than expected.  Make sure to get to the market early, sweet corn never lasts long.
