This is the Gardner Village location of the Wasatch Front Farmers Market that happens on Saturdays during the summer. The Wheeler Farm version, which takes place on Sundays, has its own listing found here: Now that that's cleared up... Every farmers market is different. Each has its own flavor, its own vibe, and its own crowd. And know what? I welcome them all. The hustle, bustle and pure richness of character at the Downtown market. The no-nonsense produce approach at Murray Park. And the something-for-everyone feeling at the Wasatch Front Farmers Market at Gardner Village. At its core, it's a community market. A community of food enthusiasts, growers, artists, crafters and folks who just like to be out on a Saturday morning. You're still going to find the produce from local growers. But there's just so much more, and it's all packed into the shops at Gardner Village. There's a $5 farm breakfast each week, which is a nice way to reward yourself for getting out of bed on a Saturday. Pancakes, sausage, all the good stuff. And there's a small stage where the live music jams. This market typically opens earlier than most of the others, so just know that the first few weeks the produce selection sells out early. That's just Mother Nature helping you appreciate good, local food when it's in season. Rest assured that as the weeks pass the produce gets packed in. This morning I saw just about every great summer veggie and some fruits in the different vendor booths. Parking is plentiful. You can park either on the west side of the property, or on the northeast. There are signs guiding you in. There really is something for everyone. I usually see more families here than anything, but there are shoppers of all ages. You can take your time--and spend some time--while you shop the booths, village shops, bakery, candy store, and restaurants at the Wasatch Front Farmers Market at Gardner Village.
