Sphinx Date Co. Palm Pantry
A Scottsdale institution since 1951, this cute country general store is decked out with white Saltillo tiles and farmhouse lighting. A well-loved purveyor of Medjool dates, dried fruit, and nuts, the Sphinx Date Ranch’s retail shop also offers a host of delicious local treats. Dedicated to farm-produced edible gifts, the pantry shop offers a spread of desert delights like date and prickly pear salsas, jams, spreads, and candies. Save room in your luggage for dark chocolate goat milk caramels and prickly pear taffy. There’s also an intoxicating selection of Arizona vineyard wines, local craft beers, and non-alcoholic sarsaparilla. After shopping, take a break on the charming patio and enjoy a Date Milkshake.
