We’ve got plenty of individual markets specializing in health food, European, Middle Eastern, Asian, and, of course, Mexican. But for originality and scope, it’s tough to match the 17th Street Market. Besides the organic produce and fresh fish, it’s got hard-to-find Asian goods—like 150 types of noodles. Farmers’ markets? We love Sunday at St. Philip’s Plaza, a gathering of fresh produce, cheese, honey, eggs, butter, and meat from farms, ranches, and apiaries in southern Arizona. It even has a wormery.
