The transition from summer to fall brings a lot of changes. Unfortunately, one of these changes is the end of great farmers markets in Salt Lake and its surrounding cities. These markets offer fresh produce and other homegrown goods from local vendors. We at Christensen & Hymas are proud residents of the Salt Lake area, and want to highlight some of our favorite markets before they close for the season. Since our clients come from throughout the Wasatch Front, we list markets in several different cities. Find the one closest to you, or make a trip out of it! But act quickly — most markets will close by the end of October.
Farmers Markets in Salt Lake (and Beyond)
Here is our list of the top farmer’s markets in Salt Lake. Enjoy!
Downtown Farmers Market
Located in Pioneer Park in downtown Salt Lake City, the Downtown Farmers Market is a longtime favorite. This year marks its 25th anniversary. The market runs from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturdays.
Fortunately, a Winter Market was started a few years ago in the Rio Grande Depot across the street from the park. Now, you can enjoy the market’s offerings nearly year-round.
Wheeler Farm Farmers Market
Located at the Wheeler Historic Farm in Murray, this Sunday market is fun for the whole family. The Farm offers wagon rides, and is an operating farm, so there are animals for the kids to look at. Additionally, the market offers a “farm-fresh breakfast using all locally produced ingredients” from 9 a.m. until 12:15 p.m on Sundays.
The Farm offers other fun fall activities, including “Pumpkin Days” and a “Festival of Scarecrows.”
Provo Farmers Market
The Provo Farmers Market takes place on Saturdays at Pioneer Park in Provo. The market runs from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Another option in Provo is the Lavell Edwards Stadium Farmers Market, held in the parking lot of the BYU football stadium on Thursday afternoons from 3 until 7 p.m.
The Farmers Market at the USU Botanical Center
The Farmers Market at the Utah State University Botanical Center in Kaysville is a great option. Shop for local goods in a beautiful setting and enjoy events such as ice cream and root beer tastings. This market ends relatively early in the year, however, so get there soon!
