Hours:Closed - Coffee shop and open air markets will continue to operate.
The Phoenix Public Market was a non-profit organization created to help local farmers, ranchers, and food producers to have a community venue in which to sell fresh and healthy food. Unfortunately, their Urban Grocery and Wine Bar (which only sold products produced in Arizona) has closed. The closure impacts over 130 vendors from agriculture, to baked goods, to crafters, and ranchers sell their wares at the market. Most products are grassfed, free-range, hormone free and naturally grown. Instead of taking the easy route and just heading to your local Fry's, please take a moment and check the websites of the local producers to see where else you can buy their products and continue to support our local economy!
The Grocery was a gathering place for many Phoenicians, but if you're grocery shopping on Wednesday or Saturday, the Public Market's Open-Air Market continues as it always has in the parking lot at 721 N. Central, Phoenix, AZ 85004. The Open-Air Market has been a neighborhood tradition since 2005, and has craftsmen, local farmers, music, and hot food vendors. Wednesdays the market takes place from 4pm-8pm, and Saturdays it starts at 8am and goes til about noon or 1pm.
The Market has several partnerships with food vendors and the Royal Coffee Bar (there are two locations: one at the Market and one at the Biltmore) continues to operate despite the closure of the Urban Grocery. The coffee bar is open M-F 7am-6pm, Saturday 7am-4pm, and Wednesday til 8pm. It has free WiFi, and a clean neighborhood feel. On Fridays from 11am to 1:30pm, in the parking lot adjoining Phoenix Public Market and Royal Coffee Bar is the weekly
Food Truck Friday
event featuring local non-competitive food trucks. Several community events take place at the market throughout the year - they host a chef's series, partner with Devoured around a variety of food competitions, and highlight various local breweries and wineries in AZ through special food pairing evenings.
