Explore the Farmers Markets in Sedona Verde Valley
Nourished by the wild and scenic Verde River, Sedona Verde Valley’s lush lands boast a long agricultural history. Early settlers discovered a surprisingly verdant region, and old records mention hay sales to Fort Verde, cattle drives to Flagstaff, and produce sales to miners and smelters in Jerome and Clarkdale.
Keeping this spirit of farming and trading alive, Sedona Verde Valley hosts many farmers markets throughout the summer. With bargain prices and delicious local produce, be sure to stop by these farmers markets!
