It was lots of fun visiting the Farmers Market at Wheeler Historic Farm earlier this year and chatting with the vendors. If you are in the Salt Lake City area during June – October, this is an event not to be missed!
Millcreek Venture Out is a fun event held every Friday evening during the summer (June through August) in the East Millcreek neighborhood of Salt Lake City, UT.
I visited this evening at around 7:00 pm, mostly for the Farmers Market where I got some pesticide-free tomatoes, and a bag of apricots. The apricots came from a fruit share program operated by Green Urban Lunchbox. They’re a non-profit program “that focuses on issues pertaining to urban agriculture, sustainability and food security.” Their mobile greenhouse was pretty cool.
The Farmers Market also featured arts and crafts, food vendors (I highly recommend the Nutella crepes), henna tattoos, a petting zoo (with cute baby goats!), and live music. A different movie is shown every week at dusk.
The complete schedule can be found here. If you’re in the area, it’s worth checking out.
