Gilbert, the former “Hay Shipping Capital of the World,” has grown from an agricultural powerhouse into a modern, diversified town just half an hour outside Central Phoenix.

Key Features

Rural with Growth: In just over 100 years, Gilbert has transformed from farmland into an attractive suburban community. There’s still plenty of fresh country air and wide open spaces!

Farm to Table: Foodies know that the best way to ensure the freshest ingredients is to go directly to the source. Holding true to its agricultural roots, the Gilbert Farmers Market provides the best produce around.
