Farmers Market Fun at Gardner Village

Summer is in full swing, which can mean only one thing... Okay, it can and does mean many things, but one of the most common of those is the annual tradition of farmers markets. Places where farmers, artisans, bakers, crafters, and creators of all kinds gather together to share their wares. And one such place, hosting some of Utah's best this summer is right here at Gardner Village. Every Saturday (June-Oct.) from 9:00 am—1:00 pm, we're delighted to welcome this talented group to our grounds.

Sample some of the season's freshest produce at our various produce stands. You'll find farm-fresh eggs, freshly-cut greens, delicious vegetables and other in-season delights. With the harvest changing weekly, you'll want to visit often to make the most of the current produce available. Your mouth will thank you.

Looking for a unique gift to give someone you care about? We have handmade options to fit all styles and interests. Peruse our booths of baby gear, fragrant skin-care essentials, toys that are sure to entertain, jewelry that sparkles, essential oils, handmade home decor, and much, much more!

Looking for divine cuisine to ether give as gifts or keep for yourself to enjoy? You've come to the right place. The handmade salsa assortment will add some sizzle to any summer party, or you can sweeten things up with locally-made honey that is as good as it gets. Beyond these, there are plenty of other canned and handmade food products to sample and enjoy.

Take a break from all of the shopping and enjoy some free and fabulous entertainment. Local musicians will join us each week to serenade you as you shop (or rest in the shade).

Pick a card, any card. And prepare to be mesmerized by the magical acts being performed.

Put on a happy face. Or a scary one. Or a sparkly one. The choice is yours at the face-painting booth. The line was long for this one, with many happy kids leaving with new looks.

Possibly the most popular of places for young and old alike was the bubble booth. It's easy to see why. After all, how can anyone resist the site of dozens of bubbles floating through the air?

Whether you come early in the morning or arrive later in the day, you'll find plenty of tasty food options to fill up on. From breakfast served by the our very own Naborhood Bakery to local food companies, grilling up delicious options, the hardest part will be deciding what to order.

While you're visiting, spend some time chatting with the booth hosts. Each has great info to share and wonderful stories to tell, both about their products and life in general.

Put your fresh foot forward this Saturday with a visit to the Gardner Village Farmers Market. There is much to see, do and eat. All are welcome. Yes, even your best four-legged friends. (Hello there, Bella!)
