There are many great farmers markets across the valley in Utah. The Downtown Farmers Market in Salt Lake City is nationally recognized and was created in 1992 by the Downtown Alliance, and has become a summer tradition for residents and visitors. Located in historic Pioneer Park, the Saturday Farmers Market has infused vitality into the middle ground between East and West neighborhoods.
The mission of the Market is to support sustainable, regional agriculture; to build community gathering places; increase access to nutritious, local foods in urban areas; and to educate consumers about shopping local.
The vendors at the market represent more than one hundred local farms and ranches. In addition to fruits and vegetables, you will find handmade, locally-produced food items, beverages, and works of art. Markets will be held from June 9 to October 20 on Saturday mornings from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
SelectHealth recognizes the local food movement from the farmers market as another example of how Utah Gives Back.
