As a part of the exciting Phoenix revival that areas of downtown have been seeing in the past few years, the sprawling Desoto Central Market building was constructed in 1928 and has maintained its urban historicism ever since. Exposed brick walls, an open-beamed ceiling and industrial furniture only serve to cater to Desoto’s vintage feel, and patrons can expect to see only the finest and freshest in farm-to-table choices from any of the market’s eateries. Favorite vendors include DCM Burger Joint, Adobo Dragon for Latin American and Asian-inspired fare and RADish for cold-pressed juices and salads that take “healthy” to a new level. Desoto Central Market’s space is utilized for a variety of events and happenings, including free yoga by Urban Yoga on Saturdays at 10 a.m. as well as dance classes and events nearly every weekend. Market hours vary daily, with the space open to the public Monday through Thursday from seven a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from seven a.m. to midnight and Sundays from seven a.m. to nine p.m. Desoto Central Market always has something exciting for any Phoenician to try, see and do, most of which is listed on the website’s regularly updated blog. desotocentralmarket.com.
