Created by the Downtown Alliance in 1992, the popular Downtown Farmers Market is located at Pioneer Park on 300 West, 300 South, and has become a summer tradition throughout the Salt Lake valley. (For more information on the Downtown Farmers Market, visit slcfarmersmarket.org.) The market was designed as a way to allow local farmers to bring produce, meats, eggs, cheese, and more direct to the public. It evolved with the addition of the Art & Craft market, bringing local artisans to the park. According to the DFM site, the market currently has a good crop of cherries, as well as summer squash, green beans, chard, turnips, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, kale, beets, arrugula, apricots, onions, and more.
