Downtown Farmers Market

The Downtown Farmers Market exists to strengthen and support small local farms and businesses as they bring their products directly to the public. Our farmers and producers offer the freshest local fruits and vegetables as well as a wide variety of grass-fed meats, eggs, dairy, honey, and flora, along with the region's best locally made sauces, spreads, baked goods and culinary accoutrements.

Protocols for customers are:

  • Do not attend the market if you are feeling unwell
  • Maintain 6 feet of social distance 
  • Wear a mask or face covering
  • Wash or sanitize hands often
  • One shopper per household
  • Use a credit card, debit card, cashless app or exact change when possible.
  • No gathering 
  • No pets (with the exception of service animals that are trained to respond to a specific medical condition)
  • Observe one-way traffic flow (signs and arrows posted)
  • Reusable bags are allowed

Farmers Market at Murray Park

Utah Farm Bureau operates the Farmers Market on Fridays and Saturdays from July 25th to October24th from 8am to 2pm at Murray Park.  The purpose of the market it to connect the consumer to the farmer, and to give out Utah farmers direct to consumer sales. 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.

Strut Your Mutt

As COVID -19 continues to bring uncertainty, Best Friends is taking every precaution to keep both people and pets healthy and safe. Because there's no way to predict the full extent or impact of the virus's spread, we've made the decision to cancel our live Strut Your Mutt event in Salt Lake City this year. But you can still step up to save lives from the comfort of your home. Strut Your Mutt Day is the virtual walk and fundraising event that since 2011 has been raising crucial funds to save the lives of dogs and cats in communities across the country.

When you register for Strut Your Mutt Day, you can virtually raise funds for Best Friends Animal Society or for the participating local network partner of your choice. It all culminates on Strut Your Mutt Day, October 24, when animal lovers across the country are encouraged to get outside and walk their dogs, stay in and snuggle their cats or donate to help pets in their communities. Although we can't be face-to-face, we're going to have more fun that ever with a calendar chock-full of brand-new engaging events hosted virtually on social media. You'll be able to join us for events like "pig yoga," Advocacy Day, the Bow Wow Film Festival and much more. More announcements are on the way, so be sure to check the event calendar regularly throughout the season. Though live events may not be happening, we can still make a huge difference for dogs and cats in shelters. Together, we can step up and Save Them All.
