An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Saturday, repeating until April 22, 2017
The Winter Market at Rio Grande, a project of Urban Food Connections of Utah, will return to downtown on November 5th at the Rio Grande Depot (300 S Rio Grande St). With more than 60 local vendors (listed at slcfarmersmarket.org) the market is held alternating Saturdays, through April 22, 2017, from 10 AM – 2 PM. Due to warm autumn weather conditions, an abundant harvest of produce will be available at the market. Shoppers can expect many items suitable for upcoming holiday meals such as squash, onions, potatoes, carrots, beets, and several varieties of greens. For the first time at Winter Market, fresh locally-raised turkeys will be available for purchase on site. Also available is a wide array of other local and specialty products, including grass-fed meats, specialty cheeses, 100% wild and sustainable seafood, honey, jam, salsa, spreads and more. This diverse range of products includes baked goods and six local natural meat purveyors featuring beef, lamb, pork and eggs. “The fourth season of the Winter Market at Rio Grande opens with a record number of vendors, ” said market director Alison Einerson. We’re proud to offer the most diverse product mix seen in any previous years, and I am proud to say this is the best place to source locally raised and grown food throughout the winter.” Many of the products available are unique to the Winter Market; the same is true for non-food products as well. Hosting a Winter Market at the Rio Grande Depot also offers an opportunity to provide additional exposure for the programs and resources found at the Rio Grande Depot, which are overseen by the Utah Department of Heritage and Arts. These include the Rio Gallery and The Utah Division of State History. The Statewide Annual exhibit rotates between Mixed Media & Works on Paper; Craft, Photography, Video & Digital works; and Painting & Sculpture: a preview of the upcoming show will be on display at the first market.
