Bullhead Farmers Market

Bullhead Farmers Market
We have been hoping to hear that the proposed Farmers Market in Laughlin (at the Regency Casino) would happen.  Still no word on whether it will or won't ever come to be.   Having come from the East Coast a few years ago, we miss the abundance of good locally grown produce available at Farmers Markets.  Recently we heard that once a month a Farmers Market is held in Bullhead City, AZ.  Bullhead is a short hop over the bridge (just past the Riverside Resort and Casino) from Laughlin.   The market takes place on the third Saturday of the month.  

We dropped by around just after 9am.  They are open from 8am to noon.  However, even at 9am there was already a lack of items left.  There are about a dozen different vendors selling everything from spring mix, Swiss Chard, spinach, beats, grapefruit, oranges, tomatoes, beets, salsa, trail mix, baked goods, pickled items, peppers, jams, and other miscellaneous farmers market type items.  Triple Farms was the most popular one with items still left (such as the beets pictured below). 


We were lucky to pick up some lettuce and greens but not so lucky in that most of the other items we wanted were already sold out.  The market seems very popular and next time we plan to get there when it opens at 8. 

A band supplies some entertainment while you shop.  Overall it was a pleasant experience.  One which will be even better if the vendors can have a larger supply or we get their earlier next time.


Come buy and support your local area.  Buy Locally!
