Mesa Market Swap

It’s basically a farmer’s market but with clothes, accessories, decorations and other unique finds, a lot of them handmade. Starting in September this outdoor market is open each Saturday and Sunday. Come hungry, as there’s a restaurant on-site that offers a great breakfast special if you come early! Learn more about the Mesa Market Swap here.

Outdoor Malls:

Get your Vitamin D while shopping – true multitasking! Whether you’re making purchases or window shopping, enjoy a beautiful stroll around SanTan Village in Gilbert. Little warm? No problem! There are misters to keep you cook as well as a kiddie splash pad! 


Farmer’s Markets:

Enjoy fresh produce from local farms and gardens. Depending on what fruit and vegetables are in season, the selection of produce differs. Along with produce they also sell hand-made craft products and locally made lotions and soaps. It’s fun to find things you can use to make dinner the same night as you’ve shopped—true farm to table!
