The Downtown Farmers Market in Salt Lake City is one of the most successful community markets in the western United States. Since its creation in 1992, the market has been used to provide citizens with fresh, local products that include produce, cheese, flowers, and eggs. Today, Salt Lake City has four different markets throughout the year, including two farmers markets, an art and craft market, and a winter market. It's a great place to take your child to teach them about healthy foods and listen to live music, plus your shopping trip will help support local businesses!
