Bike & Rail to the Phoenix Public Market

Last night my GF and I biked to the light rail stop at Apache & 101, rode it to Central & Van Buren and then biked 1/4 mile to the Phoenix Public Market’s open air market on Central and Pierce. The open air market is open Wednesdays from 4pm – 8pm and Saturday’s from 8am – 1pm. Picked up some great veggies including some heirloom cherry size tomatoes which are tasty enough to eat by themselves. Also made a stop at BreadFruit for some authentic Jamaican food, very tasty. They make the spiciest Jerk chicken I’ve ever had. If you like hibiscus tea, try the Sorrel drink made with hibiscus and ginger.

Two side notes, you can use a credit/debit card at the market, very handy for someone who rarely deals in cash. Also, I still think the bike rack situation on METRO light rail is less than optimal, it’s just not very user friendly and is difficult for the average person to load & unload their bike. I can’t imagine using it when the rail cars are at half capacity or greater.
