Momma’s Organic Market in Peoria

So the wife grabs the local paper this morning and on the cover was a small little sticker advertising a local organic market. She opens the paper and starts to read about this market and all the wonderful things it has to offer.

Park West, a fairly new “open-air” shopping center, is home to “Momma’s Organic Market” every third Saturday of the month from September to April from 9am to 2pm. It offers locally grown organic fruits and vegetables, local mechants, and companies showcasing green products. They’re extremely kid friendly as well offering a petting zoo, a “bounce house”, story time, and face painting. The market spreads across the length of the shopping center giving plenty of room to sit and people watch; which is always a fun past time for adults. Park West itself is a fantastic place to shop, dine, and hang out at as well. From

The open-air center is anchored by a 14-screen Harkins Theatre, 9 sit-down restaurants, more than 50 specialty retailers and two beautiful parks. The center’s western resort feel includes relaxing “Bali” lounges, reflecting pools and wood shutters. The picturesque center also features outdoor fireplaces, unique art pieces, canopy-lined walkways and beautiful landscaping.

Overall I think Momma’s Organic Market has a really cool vibe with or without the kids and the fact that most of the vendors there are locally owned businesses makes it worth the time to check out each month. For more info check out or their blog at

Phoenix Mercury Win the 2009 WNBA Championship

For the second time in three years the Phoenix Mercury rise to the top of the WBNA. With the championship series tied, the Phoenix Mercury returned home for the final game against the Indiana Fever and won 94-86 to finish with the trophy. It was a sell out crowd of 17,313 and Diana Taurasi, the league and finals MVP, didn’t disappoint scoring a game high 26 points during Friday night’s game.

Congratulations to the the ladies of the Mercury and to the city of Phoenix for another championship win. To celebrate, the Mercury will be holding a championship rally at 6pm Monday at the U.S. Airways Center Pavilion.
