Salt Lake City Farmers Markets 2017

by Maggie McCormick

When you think of summer, what is the first thing you think of? Warm weather, long days, and fresh fruit and vegetables are a few that come to mind. This summer is no exception! We are excited about the many farmers markets that are opening this week here in Salt Lake City.

Some of these markets are familiar summer sights (the Downtown Farmers Market has been around since 1992!), while others are just getting started (welcome Liberty Park Market!)

The increasing number of markets is encouraging; making fresh, locally grown produce more accessible to all residents of the City.

Farmers markets create a sense of community and are a great way to support local farms and businesses as well as to shop and eat locally and sustainably.

There’s going to be a lot of great markets this season, we hope you can go out and enjoy them (and don’t forget to bring your reusable bags)!
