Just to recap my first post about the opening of the Downtown Salt Lake City Farmers Market, this event runs every Saturday morning from June to October at Pioneer Park, operating from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. This farmers market has been a great summer attraction to both tourists and locals alike for over 20 years.
For all you college kids looking for something to do this summer, this farmers market is a great choice for a date or just to hang with your buddies. I brought my boyfriend along with me on my visit and it turns out that this was his first ever visit to the SLC farmers market! We both enjoyed taking the stroll around the park and exploring the newest tastes and talents. If you and your date just want a grab a bite to eat and relax, be sure to bring a blanket for relaxing picnic in the park or grab a couple of chairs near the main stage and enjoy the music entertainment of the day!
Be sure to check out the Market Info table if you're a first-timer for information on the variety of vendors and what's new in the community! This booth is a great tool if you're looking for something specific at the market and you don't want to waste time wondering the whole park. Save time and get all the details in one stop!
For all you mamas and pops out there who want a fun activity for your kids on a Saturday afternoon, "Hoops O' Funn" performs within the last half hour of the market's operating hours. They also provide hula-hoops to just play around with nearby their booth where they sell a variety of accessories of all sizes. Bring the kids and show them your moves!
SLC Farmers Market encourages both vendors and customers to clean up after themselves in an easy and simple way. Do your part in keeping Pioneer Park clean and waste-free by throwing away your trash at these "Recycle & Landfill" stations that are located all around the park. Everyone can make a difference!
