Although the Downtown Farmers Market is in its final days of the season, another farmers market is on the horizon for Salt Lake City residents.
Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker and the Downtown Alliance recently announced the arrival of a new Winter Farmers Market that will take up residence in the Rio Grande Depot.
Opening day is scheduled for Saturday, November 9. The Winter Farmers Market will take place every other Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. through April 26.
Officials are heralding this as an important step towards a year round market, similar to those seen in Seattle, Portland and Madison, Wisconsin.
Roughly 50 vendors are slated to participate, offering fresh produce, meat, bread, honey, eggs and other items.
