Spanish Fork Salem Chamber Farmer’s Market Set to Begin August 1st
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.
