My sister and I had been to Singh Farms a few times before and we decided it was time to stock up on some yummy veggies. Two weekends ago we took Mr. Delish to the farm. He had never visited it even though he’s been living in Scottsdale most of his life!!
This is not your typical Scottsdale/Phoenix Farmer’s Market. This is a REAL farm in the middle of the desert! Most Farmer’s Market in the Scottsdale/Phoenix area are held in some parking lot where the vendors set up tents with vegetables in plastic baskets…hmmmm :(. To me that takes away from the experience of going to a “Farmer’s Market”.
Singh Farms is a 20-acre farm located right by the 101 freeway. It’s surrounded by big lush trees so you don’t even know it’s there! Instead of writing about it, I’m going to let the photos speak for themselves. You’ll see why you will feel transported (out of the desert) the minute you set foot on this farm.
The Farm has different areas where you can purchase the goodies they provide. This is their juice station:
Singh farms is owned and operated by Ken & Lee Singh – a husband and wife team. “What I want folks to see is this can be done in the desert, without chemicals,” says Ken Singh.
Here is Mr. Singh talking to a group of people that we joined for a couple of minutes.
You’ll find several very cozy and comfortable areas to take a break or just enjoy the beauty of the farm. I think these folks were having a blast people watching! Aren’t they adorable?
If you get hungry while on the farm, do not panic! There is food available to buy. It changes weekly so you never know what you’re going to get! You only have one option….this time it was Lentil Soup garnished with Daikon and Chili Pepper, salad on the side plus a slice of bread. Sooo good!
The soup was very tasty and it had the perfect kick from the chili pepper. Eating this meal outside surrounded by all the greenery (a rare opportunity in Scottsdale), makes you feel so relaxed and enchanted! I did not want to leave. It wasn’t a lot of food, more like a snack than anything else, but enough to hold you over.
Yep, they even have a giant teepee for the kids to play in!
If you go with your kids make sure to take them to the corral where they keep their horses. The kids love feeding them!
That’s it! I hope you get to visit Singh Farms, get some fresh air and enjoy some wholesome food.
