  • Applications for the Downtown Farmers Market in Pioneer Park open Feb. 7. If you are interested in becoming a new vendor, you can follow this link to find more information about what is required of vendors and the market's policies and procedures. 

  • Urban Food Connections of Utah microgrant opportunities are now open for existing commercial farming establishments dedicated primarily to the production of fruits and vegetables using ecologically sustainable agricultural methods. The intent of the Local Food Microgrant Program is to increase the amount and diversity of sustainably grown produce available to Utahns receiving SNAP benefits by assisting local small farmers to access technology, education, tools and equipment to support more sustainable growing practices. UFCU has been able to grant over $175,000 to Utah farmers. The minimum request is $500, and the maximum grant request is $5,000. Deadline to apply: March 15. Click here to apply now.

Red Acre Center's Symbria Patterson and former state lawmaker Marc Roberts. Both were back on Utah's Capitol hill keeping an eye on legislation affecting the agrihood. 

  • Thursdays: Politics & Pastries during the legislative session. Look for them from 9:30-10:30 a.m. every Thursday in Room 160 of the Utah State Capitol Building, 350 N. State St., SLC. "It’s a busy session with bills to discuss, support, and oppose. Please join us in helping to build local food economies by being part of the legislative process. We need you whether you are a seasoned veteran or have never stepped foot on the grounds."
