This is Derek Miller, Speaking on Business. For more than 30 years, the Salt Lake City community has welcomed the Downtown Farmers Market that includes more than 100 Farms and ranches from several Utah counties. Carly Gillespie from the Urban Food Connections of Utah is here with more.
32 years ago, Salt Lake’s Downtown Alliance started the Farmers Market at Pioneer Park. It is now a beloved summer tradition every Saturday 8am-2pm, June through October.
In addition to fruits and vegetables, vendors offer locally made food and beverages alongside our arts and crafts market. We think of the Farmers Market as a gathering space for Utah farmers, food entrepreneurs, and consumers which strengthen our communities.
The mission of the Market is to support sustainable, regional agriculture; to build community gathering places; to increase access to nutritious, local foods in urban areas; and to educate the consumer about shopping local. With your support, we’re achieving the goals and ensuring that our community always has access to delicious, local food.
We feature fresh vegetables, honey, local meats, savory salsas and sauces, bountiful baked goods, and delicious dairy products. We believe in knowing where your food comes from and how it is produced and vet our vendors so you can trust their products are made and grown in Utah.
The Downtown Farmers Market at Pioneer Park is open every Saturday 8am-2pm. You can visit slcfarmersmarket.org to learn more!
