Serve Daily - - BUILDING COMMUNITY - By Clark H. Caras

The Utah’s Own-cer­ti­fied and listed Span­ish Fork Salem Area Cham­ber of Com­merce sum­mer Farmer’s Mar­ket is set to be­gin again this year at 8 a.m. on Satur­day, Aug. 1. The mar­ket, which takes place be­hind the Span­ish Fork City build­ing at 40 S. Main, will con­tinue ev­ery Satur­day from 8 a.m. un­til 1 p.m. through Satur­day, Novem­ber 7.

Fast be­com­ing one of the fa­vorite mar­kets in the area, this year’s of­fer­ings will fea­ture lo­cal pro­duce, meat rubs, honey, cut flow­ers, home­made salsa, jams and jel­lies and herbs as well as ar­ti­san breads, which are al­ways a fa­vorite of both at­ten­dees and those selling at the mar­ket.

“Span­ish Fork and Salem are two of the places in Utah Val­ley that have al­ways been known for the qual­ity of agri­cul­ture pro­duced here,” said Clark H. Caras, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of the Span­ish Fork Salem Area Cham­ber of Com­merce. “And we are very proud to say the her­itage car­ries on and is fea­tured in the goods of­fered fresh in the mar­ket here along Main Street.”

Caras was quick to point out that one of the ex­cit­ing things about the pro­duce is that both the veg­eta­bles and fruits dis­played for sale are lit­er­ally be­ing picked in the fields that sur­round Span­ish Fork and Salem while shop­pers are still in bed. The ar­ti­san breads are just be­ing pulled out of the ovens about the time faces are be­ing washed to wake the shop­pers up.

“We take pride in the fact we fol­low the guide­lines put out by the Utah Farm Bureau in the def­i­ni­tion of what a farmer’s mar­ket truly is and stick to that,” he said. “Shop­pers will see in­cred­i­ble of­fer­ings for Sun­day din­ner or be able to buy in the quan­ti­ties they will be look­ing for in their can­ning to last through the win­ter.”

There are still spots avail­able for this year’s mar­ket. To re­serve a spot, call 801-798-8352. Spots are avail­able for the en­tire run of the mar­ket or on a weekly ba­sis at a lesser cost.
