Because of our unique mission the market is food-only, meaning we don't offer space to any crafts, musicians, clothing, etc. This makes for a unique shopping experience focused entirely on Utah farmers and the great fresh produce that is available during our growing season! Vendors also sell other pantry staples: fresh bread, jams, salsa and tamales. We want YOU to make a connection with your local farmer.
