We're less than a week away from our move from Colorado to the Phoenix area. In fact, I'm writing this from a hotel lobby while my husband is still asleep. First let us observe a moment of silence for my gas cooktop; our new home is in an area where natural gas isn't available, boo hoo.
I know some things will change when I'm in my new kitchen:
1) Everything I learned about baking after moving from Atlanta to Denver I must now unlearn.
2) I'm leaving behind a wonderful spice shop in Littleton CO. It's something like Penzeys but with about a zillion individual spices and herbs available by the ounce in addition to spice mixes by the bottle. Is there anything like that in the Phoenix area?
3) I'm looking forward to fresh local produce all year round, in contrast to Colorado's growing season of about seven minutes. Any recommendations for farmer's markets? (We'll be just west of Goodyear.) I've already read about the Glendale evening farmer's market and that sounds as though it's well worth the drive. I've also done some research on localharvest.org but tell me if there's one resource that's your very favorite.
