Announcement

Flower Fly Farm will be taking a hiatus from selling at the Gilbert Farmer’s Market for a while. 


Due to the growing pains of a young agroforest-based farm and other forces, Flower Fly Farm will focus on the growing part of farming while taking a break from selling at the Market. You have been great customers and I regret needing to take this step; but feel that it is the right step to ensure the long-term health and survival of Flower Fly Farm.


Rest assured that Flower Fly Farm is still here and will be back to sell our high-quality, diverse produce at the Market.  Please feel free to e-mail any questions or comments you have.


Our last day at the Gilbert Farmer’s Market was December 2018.
