The Downtown Farmers Market is in it’s 25th year.

In this episode of Building Utah, we sit down with Carson Chambers, the program manager for the Market, to talk about the Market’s roots, how vendors contribute to Utah’s local food scene, and how you can get involved with this important event.

About the Downtown SLC Farmers Market:

The Downtown Farmers Market is proud to enter its 25th year as Salt Lake City’s most beloved summer tradition for residents and visitors.

The Downtown Farmers Market exists to strengthen and support small local farms and businesses as they bring their products directly to the public. Our farmers and producers offer the freshest local fruits and vegetables as well as a wide variety of grass-fed meats, eggs, dairy, honey, and flora, along with the region’s best locally made sauces, spreads, baked goods and culinary accouterments.
