Farmers Marks Offer Fresh Produce At Many Spots Around Utah
If you enjoy fresh, vine-ripened, locally grown or locally produced foods, you should stop by one of Utah's many farmers markets. Many items reach sales tables just hours after being harvested. Some markets also offer local craft items and baked goods.
Of of Utah's products have become quite famous. For example, you won't find better watermelons than those grown in the Green River area in SE Utah. And for fresh apricots, plums, peaches and such, stop at one of the many stands along “The Fruitway” (Hwy. 89 running through the communities of Willard, Perry and Brigham City in northern Utah).
Many of our farmers markets are now open for the season and others will open withing the next week or two. There are markets in every part of the state.
The Deseret News has this current list of know markets, including large markets in the Salt Lake City area and smaller markets throughout the state. Take a look and then plan stops as you travel the state.
