North Scottsdale Farmers Market has launched a delivery service where you can order your items online and have them delivered to your door for a very reasonable delivery fee of $3 if you live within 10 miles of the farmers market. If you live outside that radius, a delivery may still be possible for an additional fee and you should contact the market for more details.
I love this idea, because I love having fresh local produce and bake goods, but seem to not be able to make the time to go to the market and pick them up myself. Our office is only slightly outside their delivery area, so perhaps we will get a group of together and have them deliver to the office since there’s almost always someone here Saturday.

Orders must be placed Monday through Thursday for delivery on the following Saturday between 8:30 and 1:30. If you’re not home, they will leave the items but recommend having a cooler outside so perishables don’t spoil (bake?) due to our mild yet slightly warm summers.
On your first order, they will contact you to get your credit card details over the phone so it remains secure, and keep that on file for future orders.
