This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. The Downtown Farmers Market in Salt Lake was created in 1992 to bring fresh Utah products to the city. Allison Einerson, Executive Director of Urban Food Connections of Utah, shares more.
The Downtown Farmers Market features more than 100 farms and ranches from within 250 miles of Salt Lake City. In addition to farm goods, area vendors offer handmade, locally produced food, beverages and crafts. Our motto is “Make it, bake it, grow it!”
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.
Our markets feature fresh vegetables, grass-fed meats, honey, savory salsas and sauces, bountiful baked goods of all kinds, as well as products for pets and more.
The Winter Farmers Market is open every Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm at The Gateway downtown. You can visit slcfarmersmarket.org to learn more.
The Farmer’s Market is a non-profit and an extension of the Salt Lake Chamber and Downtown Alliance. It helpis small farms and businesses bring their products directly to the public. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, Speaking on Business.
