DOWNTOWN FARMERS MARKET FINAL DAY OCTOBER 27

Market closes 20th season with Halloween-themed activities and events.

Salt Lake City (October 24, 2012) – The Downtown Farmers Market will close out its 20th season in Historic Pioneer Park on Saturday, October 27. Record-breaking attendance to shop for fresh produce, prepared foods, arts and crafts from over 250 local vendors continues to activate the west side of downtown each day the market takes place.


Activities scheduled for the final market include a "Howl-O-Ween" costume contest for pets that kicks off at 9 AM. Children will be treated to a pumpkin festival with harvest related story-telling and pumpkin decorating the entire day.
It is typical of the final market for vendors to offer fresh products in bulk, so shoppers can preserve foods for use during the winter months. Hard squash and apples, which last several weeks or months, are popular late season buys. A large array of pumpkins and gourds in many shapes and sizes is not to be missed. The final market also provides one last opportunity to buy from local artists at the Downtown Art and Craft Market—more than 90 artists selling 100% local and handmade gifts.


"Thanks to the support of our loyal customers and the hard work of our dedicated vendors, the Downtown Farmers Market continues to succeed in its mission of connecting rural and urban communities," said Kim Angeli, Market Manager. "As we close the 20th season, the pumpkin festival is a great way to celebrate the fall harvest".


The Downtown Farmers Market is open from 8 AM – 1 PM.
