Farmers Market Offerings
Think of everything you could possibly want at a Saturday Farmers Market… We have it all!
Local Produce and Other Local Foods
You’ll find loads of seasonal and locally grown produce at the market. Check the Downtown Salt Lake City Famers Market website each week for a list of the fruits and vegetables that will be available at the market. Other local farms will set up booths to offer grass-fed meats, fresh eggs, local honey, and other homemade spreads and sauces. Some of Salt Lake City‘s finest bakeries offer delicious fresh-baked breads, cookies, pastries, and other baked goods as well. Munch on a flaky chocolate croissant or a blueberry muffin as you continue your walk around the Salt Lake Farmers Market.
Food Trucks and Other Ready-to-Eat Foods
Down the middle aisle of Pioneer Park, local restaurants and food trucks come to offer Farmers Market attendees made-to-eat foods and fresh drinks. Grab a fresh cup of coffee or a smoothie with your pastry, or show up a little later in the day and try some Japanese or Vietnamese cuisine for lunch. Finish it off with a homemade popsicle, a cold-pressed juice, or a mint tea lemonade (pictured below).
Art and Craft Market
Another part of the Pioneer Market you won’t want to miss is the Art & Craft Market. Along this line of craft booths spanning almost two city blocks, you’ll find handcrafted pieces and unique gifts. Ceramics and pottery, sculptures, prints, paintings, photographs, woodwork, glasswork, handmade jewelry, leatherwork, and even bath products are all available for purchase.
Other Amenities and Tips
A visitors’ information booth, a first-aid booth, Port-A-Potty’s, trash and recycling receptacles, and water fountains can also be found at the downtown farmers market. We’d recommend checking the weather forecast the day beforehand, because even in the morning, Salt Lake City can get very hot. To beat the heat, head out early in the morning, or come prepared with plenty of bottled water, hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen.
Visiting local farmers markets is always a great way to familiarize yourself with a new area and get to know the culture of a new city.
