Basket of Organic Red Cabbages: Singh Farms, Scottsdale, AZ

Basket of Organic Red Cabbages: Singh Farms, Scottsdale, AZ

Tucked away behind dense, towering groves of trees, just east of Loop 101 off E. Thomas Road in Scottsdale (actually, it just crosses into the Pima-Maricopa Indian Reservation) is a magical, hidden gem.

Singh Farms is one of the best-kept secrets in the area, and once you’ve entered the 20-acre family-owned farm for a morning farmer’s market event, you will quickly forget that you’re in a large desert city in the middle of the Valley of the Sun. Singh Farms is truly a marvel, an unexpected slice of heaven.

It’s unbelievably verdant and serene here, with groves of shade-producing, overgrown old mesquite and other indigenous trees, patches of organic vegetable, flower, and fruit gardens that thrive in the desert climate. The Singh Farms farmer’s market sells everything from fresh eggs to honey to herbs, citrus to kale to homemade pickles and juices to organic compost. Kids are welcomed (and there is plenty of space for them to run about and explore), but dogs aren’t allowed. Winding dirt paths meander through the flourishing gardens.

The few times I’ve gone (once with my daughter), the place has been bustling, packed with people, and there is often live, local music being played. A penned area on the eastern perimeter has chickens and a peacock, another has goats, and there is a roomy corral with a couple of horses. A cranky, bold rooster has free rein of the property. Through out the market area is an eclectic collection of tables and chairs for just kicking back, many of which are vintage. Tree stumps are also used for tables and seating. There are random antique pots and other cool, rusting outdoor paraphenalia that are artfully displayed in different areas of the property. There is even a secluded yoga area and rustic kiosks and shacks for homemade pizza and local chefs’ demonstrations. Near the market area is a huge fire pit circled by logs for sitting upon, and the smell of burning wood will transport you to childhood camping days in the mountains. But this isn’t up north in the Arizona high country — it’s a stone’s throw from my home in Maricopa County, using successful gardening techniques that transform our usual barren desert into a lush, soul-restoring oasis.

The hours and days that the farmer’s market is open to the public varies through the year, so if you’re thinking of going, check their Facebook page first.

Scottsdale, Arizona

Summary, via Phoenix New Times:
Despite being in the middle of a desert, the greater Phoenix area has a handful of wonderful farms. One such beauty is Singh Farms. Nestled under canopies of mature mesquite trees, the soft ground produces herbs, exotic plants, and tasty vegetables. The farmers market on the premises is open every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. to sell freshly harvested produce, dips, oils, honeys, and jams — and artisanal MJ bread to serve along with it all. The market also carries Hayden Flour Mills products, including the pizza dough blend made from local heritage grains. The 20-acre farm is located just outside of downtown Scottsdale on Thomas Roads. Owners Lee and Ken Singh not only provide the Valley with top-notch local food, but they also take pride in educating the public on the traditions of nutritious food.
