Man turns Tempe golf course into a farmer’s market
PHOENIX — Where people used to drive carts on the grass and take divots out of the ground is now where people are selling things they grew from other ground.
Ken Singh leased the land where a former golf course used to reside and turned it into a farmer’s market, according to KJZZ.
Singh rented 63 acres of land north of the Loop 202 in 2014 that used to hold the Rio Salado Golf Course, wanting it to just be a place that was nice and peaceful. He told KJZZ that he wanted it to be simply “nothing.”
Over the course of the past few years, Singh has turned the land into a farmer’s market that has produce from his own Scottsdale farm, among other things.
The new place, located at 1490 E. Weber Dr., is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
