UPDATE – The shop is closed! But go to Cave Creek and Enjoy all it has to offer!
Have you been to Cave Creek Arizona? This small town just North of the Valley is the perfect place for visitors or people wanting to get out of the city and experience something new. Going to Cave Creek does not take a whole day. But you could get lost exploring its charm. One of the hidden gems here is Shop on the Hill. Located right behind the Las Tiendas shopping center this quaint little local artisan market is packed full of Arizona products, art and handcrafted items. If you have ever been to one of the Farmers Markets around the surrounding cities, you will recognize many of them. Shop on the Hill has all of them listed on the Website. I’ll picture and mention a few of my favorites, but it does not even come close to the products on hand. This is the perfect place to get gifts. I’ve already put together a small hostess gift basket filled with all locally made products. They are going to love it!

Big Earl’s Specialty!
No day trip is complete without grabbing some AMAZING food! At least not in my book. Legitimatly withinin walking distance are three great places. Right in the Las Tiendas center is Bryan’s Black Mountain BBQ, more than just your average BBQ. Then across the street is either Big Earl’s Greasy Eats with next level burgers & shakes. Also just across the street and a little West is Local Jonny’s a great chill out spot with coffee food & beer. You are going to love the food & atmosphere so much you will be back sooner than you think.
You should follow Shop on the Hill all over social media to keep up with events and hours. They are only open Saturday currently, but that is subject to change. It’s so hard for us locals to find adventure during the summer. Right now is the perfect time to visit Cave Creek. All the winter visitors and tourists are away and the town is ours for a very short window of time! It’s not THAT hard to find. If you can find the Las Tiendas Shopping Center, just look for the cute little bungalow behind it.
