Farmers Markets Return To Utah
it’s that time! Farmers Markets and yard sales go off weekly around Salt Lake City and Park City in the summer. If you’ve never experienced the community of these outdoor “marts”, make it happen this year. There’s no better way to feel a part of your surrounding than browsing oddities, crafts, used goods, baked goods, and giant zucchinis along with your neighbors.
Drive any street on Saturday morning and you’ll see handwritten, fluorescent signs with arrows littering light and street poles. Or head over to the Sunday monthly Urban Flea Market at 600 South Main Street in downtown, SLC. The vendor tents that line the streets put all the junk in one space. No more cruising. Salt Lake City’s biggest -and pretty much only – regular flea market is a great place to find all your white-bread treasures a good Mormon county would have. You can also sell your own schtuff if you don’t mind dragging it to 600 South between Main Street and West Temple, across from Little America Hotel.
Antiques, vintage, secondhand and locally made treasures will be on display 9 a.m.- 3 p.m., July 10, August 14, September 11, and October 9. Food trucks and music will round out the day and each flea market will feature a different animal rescue with animals for adoption.
The market is free and open to the public and there’s plenty of free parking.
