It is a tradition for me during the summer and fall months to attend the Downtown Farmer's Market in Salt Lake City, Utah. It is so fun to listen to the music being played by the street musicians and to sample the wares of the vendors. There is something there for everyone. Handmade soap, fresh flowers, honey, jams, jellies and a variety of fruits and vegtables. Many of the varieties of fruits and vegtables are organically grown and some are labeled as heirloom varieties. There are artisan breads and many ethnic food vendors. Arts and crafts booths round out the vendor list. There really aren't words to describe the sights and smells of the early morning Farmer's Market. If you don't live in the Salt Lake City metro area, you may consider checking out a farmer's market in your area. Be sure to get there early for the best selection and be prepared to stick around for the entertainment.
