Del Monte Market has been a staple corner store, complete with hitching post, since 1908. Located at 2659 W Dobbins Rd.Phoenix, AZ 85041, it's was probably the only store for miles until recently (last 10 years or so) when the building and development in the area boomed. They carry a little of everything, and have a blue mailbox in front as well as a volleyball court to the back of the market. Today they were also selling Indian Fry-Bread at a small stand to the back. Neat place.
In the background you can see the Estrella Mountains, which are in mid-SW Maricopa County.
