The Saturday Downtown Farmers Market at Pioneer Park has become such a popular destination that the farmers are almosot lost in the crowd of arts and crafts vendors, prepared food booths, buskers and dog-walkers. In other words, it's a huge success.
But I'll be frank. Sometimes finding a parking place and threading a path through dogs, strollers and gawkers is more than I can handle when what I really want is fresh-picked corn and tree-ripened peaches.I don't want a party. I just want some local produce.
So when the Tuesday evening market opens every summer, I'm relieved.The Tuesday evening market has been going on for several years, but it' still not that heavily trafficked. That's why I call it a secret weapon.
August and September are the heights of the harvest in Utah and Kim Angelli, queen of the Farmers Market at the Downtown Alliance, has hand-picked 25–30 farms to sell their produce on Tuesday evenings at Pioneer Park, from 4 until dusk.
Shop in peace.
