Holladay - Holladay is now going to host a farmers market! Holladay City Mayor Rob Dahle and Holladay City Council are pleased to have the first open air market on the Holladay village plaza this summer. The Wasatch Front Farmers Market (WFFM) operates farmers markets along the Wasatch Front. These markets include the Wheeler Farm Farmers Market on Sundays, and their newest addition, the Holladay Farmers Market on Saturdays starting June 4. The city is looking forward to serving its residents with fresh produce and local products that will also bring in customers from neighboring cities. Saturday mornings will be filled with an even more lively crowd, with fun activities and more great food options.
The WFFM was founded in 2011 by Maryann Alston. The markets are producer only, which means their farmers and producers may sell only what they grow, raise, or make. Farmers and producers generally come from the Wasatch Front area and are limited to Utah.
The markets have become a weekly gathering for several communities. Week after week, the markets burst with energy: live music fills the air, various interactive activities are scattered throughout the market and people show up each week to sell their homegrown goods and to support each other.
Holladay City Council wants to let people know that Laney Avenue (between Holladay Boulevard and 2300 East) will be closed during the market. Parking is available at Holladay City Building and along the street by the park. Patrons are encouraged to ride their bikes and walk to the market. There will also be a Market Kids Club each week from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. that includes cooking demos, crafts and more.
Whether it’s a fresh peach you are after, a loaf of artisan-made bread, a handcrafted apple pie or a pony ride, you’ll find it at one of their markets!
