A New Foodie Trail in Arizona

Travellers seeking to tantalise their taste buds should hit the road and enjoy nearly a dozen culinary-focused attractions on the new Fresh Foodie Trail in Arizona, the United States.

Developed by Visit Mesa, the destination marketing organization for Arizona's third-largest city, Mesa, and its surrounding regional communities, the Fresh Foodie Trail is a new self-guided driving route that guides visitors on their food-filled road trips in the Greater Phoenix metropolitan area. Stops include a citrus grove, olive mill, peach orchard, dairy farm and even a flour mill, all offering tours and tastings paired with education on locally-grown Arizona goods.

The Arizona Fresh Foodie Trail is presented in a new Agritourism Guide for those heading to the southwest of the US. The guide maps out each of the culinary attractions, highlights farmers markets, food truck events, and includes a local dining section with restaurants that feature locally-grown and locally-sourced items on their menus. The guide also includes information on food-inspired events, the area's craft brewing scene, and a seasonal guide to u-pick produce.

Stops on Arizona's Fresh Foodie Trail include Superstition Dairy Farms, a fourth-generation farm featuring a milk bar and cheese and ice cream tasting; The Orange Patch, one of Arizona's original citrus growers; and Queen Creek Olive Mill, Arizona's only family-owned and operated working olive mill and farm.

As the area's attractions are open year-round, visitors can time their visits to experience multiple harvests, a variety of culinary events, festivals and food-related happenings, and to enjoy various produce at different times of the year, including citrus in January, peaches in May, and olives in October.
