Mesa Market Place Swap Meet

Firstly, the Mesa Market Place Swap Meet is a great place to visit if you'd like to see hundreds of merchants and over 1600 different shops. The variety and the largeness of it are honestly staggering!

The website of the Mesa Market Place Swap Meet says itself:

"We’re probably the largest market place in Arizona! There is more to see here than anyone can see in one day! A single breezeway covers a mile and a quarter of shopping lanes. In High Season. 900 merchants stock 1600 shops. The place is enormous. The pace is relaxed, the merchants are friendly, and there are lots of places to sit and people-watch, too."


"Whether you are an avid shopper, or just want to slow down and enjoy the ambiance, there’s plenty to do. You’re welcome to listen in on some great live music in the Food Court in the middle of the market. Enjoy a beer, a meal, a sandwich, or a smoothie there, too."

Are you intrigued yet? The market is handicap accessible, and there's a food court as well. All in all, this market is a great place if you'd like to explore all the different shops, but it's also an amazing place for a family trip. You can all get together here in Mesa and eat some amazing food.

The Mesa Market Place Swap Meet is located at 10550 E Baseline Road in Mesa.

Superstition Ranch Market

The second market that's definitely worth visiting when you find yourself in Mesa is the Superstition Ranch Market. You get to buy produce from local farmers and therefore support them while becoming a part of the strong community.

To quote the website of the Superstition Ranch Market:

"Our families and employees invite you to come and shop in our locally owned and operated stores that truly care and support our local community. The strong relationships we have built with our local farmers and vendors in our 50 years of business and our commitment to our community is what we proudly hang our hat on."

The market actually has two different branches, and the one in Mesa can be found at 4755 E. Main Street in Mesa. The other branch is located at 7 N 114th Street in Apache Junction.

There are different departments that you can explore at the market, for example, Produce Department, Grocery Department, Bakery Department or Wholesale Department. There are also Deals of the Month!

What's more, the website of the market offers some delicious recipes that you can make at home yourself. It includes a Summer Cucumber Salad or Quick & Easy Cheesy Asparagus. Yummy!
