The Big O

O is for organic of course!  In an attempt to find fresh organic produce to make homemade baby food for my son, I have been shopping at the Momma’s Organic Market in Peoria, AZ.  The idea of a “winter” farmer’s market is still quite novel to me, but this market runs the third Saturday of every month from September to April.  They have some of the most beautiful fruits and veggies I have ever seen.  If you have ever cooked with local produce you know the difference, and the same goes when making baby food.   This organic market has a little something for everyone, and is a supporter of local small businesses.   In addition to their outstanding organic selection, they feature live music, food vendors, homemade goods, a book exchange, and story time for the kids.  It’s a really great way to spend your Saturday morning.   The Momma’s Organic Market is open from 9 am-2 pm.  For more information check out their website at
