With National Farmer’s Market Week in our rear-view mirror we felt it appropriate to share some pictures from our Pop-Up Farmer’s Markets last week!

We launched the Pop-Up Farmer’s Market program in 2016 and introduced it to you, our readers, last August in a blog post titled “Farmer’s Markets are Popping Up Everywhere”. We expanded the program for 2017 and now offer three markets a week at different senior centers around Salt Lake County.

Our amazing Master Gardener volunteers assist with harvesting, delivering and disseminating fresh fruits and vegetables to markets where seniors benefit from receiving FREE locally grown produce! How did you celebrate National Farmer’s Market week?  Leave a comment and let us know!
