Duncan’s Trading Company
The beautiful produce that emerges from Duncan’s Trading Company is not the ordinary beets, radishes and fennel that you find in commercial markets. Heirloom varieties are grown in unexpected colors and unusual shapes and sizes with distinct, profound flavor.
While some of Duncan’s Trading Company vegetables are familiar, many are uncommon, the result of experimentation with the Valley’s often unforgiving growing conditions, and “gentleman Farmer” Pat Duncan’s refusal to use greenhouses or other props favored by other local growers.
Duncan’s produce is referred to by unique names – baby Solar Yellow carrots, Red Beard scallions, Sparkler radishes, Graffiti cauliflower, Bright Lights Rainbow chard, and baby Flashy Trout Back lettuce. Choices range from beets, lettuces, tomatoes, beans, eggplant, bell peppers, peas, exotic melons, watermelons, squash, and dozens of other herbs, salad and braising greens.
Pat plants everything personally and supervises a team of a half dozen pickers through harvest. He hand-delivers to each of his restaurant clients, including Arcadia Farms.
Crooked Sky Farms
“Farmer Frank” Martin started farming in his back yard and selling his produce at the Prescott Farmers’ Market in 2002. Today Crooked Sky Farms has expanded and grows fresh produce for several Farmers’ Markets and CSAs throughout the state of Arizona. Crooked Sky Farms produce is “Certified Naturally Grown”, and committed to sustainable farming using organic methods and regionally appropriate crops, resulting in delicious and healthy produce.
Crooked Sky Farms consists of several small fields in Glendale, Waddell, Duncan, Phoenix, and Young, Arizona. The locations of these fields are in different climate zones, which allow for year round farming, and great produce diversity.
Crooked Sky Farms is now offering a Saturday market on the farm from 8am to noon! A great way to spend your morning and pick your fresh, local and organic produce for the week!
