One Day Only…Prickly Pear Fruit Products at Tomorrow’s Market!


A Taste of What’s Local in Arizona!
Formerly from Media, Chris and Anne-Marie Hansel have been living in Tonto Basin in the northern part of Arizona since 2005, and raising and harvesting prickly pear cactus on their acre and a half for most of that time. This vibrant desert plant has been used for food and medicine for hundreds of years. With a taste similar to watermelon, high in fiber, antioxidants, and carotenoids, it is a completely natural renewable food, with no need for chemicals or pesticides to grow them.

Chris and Marie are visiting the area and will be at Media Farmers Market for one day only tomorrow, with a wide assortment of their prickly pear products: jams, jellies, syrups, and straight prickly pear juice. Come out and say hi to Chris and Anne-Marie and find out more about prickly pears and Arizona!
