We are about to move from St. Louis to Phoenix. I've recently gotten into TF, and at a great farmer's market here, I have been able to buy pastured eggs for $2/dozen, pastured chicken leg quarters for $1.10/lb, grass-fed butter for $4.50/lb. I also found out about a good source of raw milk for $6/gallon but never got on their list because I knew we might be moving soon.


I'm wondering if all these things will be a lot more expensive in Phoenix. If you live there, what do you usually pay for staples of your TF diet?


What are the best local farms, markets, stores, etc.?


I've never been to Phoenix, never been to the southwest at all, so I have no idea what to expect!

Welcome to Arizona. We live in Tucson so I can't answer your questions. The farmers' markets in Tucson I've been to are getting better, but historically they were mainly craft fairs with one or two produce stands. We shop at Trader Joe's, Sprouts, and Whole Foods.


If you are moving soon, you are moving at the worst time of year. Phoenix is 5 degrees hotter than Tucson and that's a huge difference.



oops gotta go.

Created an instant family (7/89 and 5/91) in 1997. Made a baby boy 12/05 adopted a baby girl 8/08. Ask me about tandem adoptive nursing. Now living as gluten, dairy, cane sugar, and tomato free vegetarians. Homeschooling and loving it.

Welcome! I live in Flagstaff- but used to live in Phoenix.  There are a few places to get good food- Sprouts, Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Fresh and Easy, and even some of the standard grocery stores have good foods.  Try and stay cool!! This has been a crazy hot summer.  Oh, and there are tons of farmers markets in Phx.  It is a great agricultural town.
