About

The Sunnyvale Farmers Market will be open 12-2 pm, every Saturday, June 9 - October 13, 2018.

What started in 2010 as a small farm stand has expanded into a multi-vendor market offering affordable, fresh food and resources to those in the greater Sunnyvale neighborhood. Every Saturday from 12-2pm the market features locally grown vegetables and fruit and specializes in ethnic crops, familiar to many of the residents in the Sunnyvale neighborhood.  The market also includes a food pantry, free kids lunch and activities, music and is a safe gathering space for all.  

Our goals for the market include: 

  • Improve the variety, freshness, taste and nutritional value of produce available in South Salt Lake City 
  • Provide educational opportunities for producers to test and refine their product and marketing skills 
  • Enhance the quality of life in the greater Salt Lake City area by providing a community activity which fosters social gathering and interaction 
  • Give growers and producers of Utah agricultural products alternative marketing opportunities 
  • Create a place to purchase fresh foods using EBT and other low-income-indicator benefits 
  • Provide an educational forum for consumers to learn the uses and benefits of quality, locally grown or prepared food products 

About the Area 

The park and its surrounding neighborhoods are located in what the United States Department of Agriculture considers the largest food desert in Salt Lake County, meaning there is limited access to fresh food for the neighborhood’s residents, many of whom are low-income. The neighborhood is also home to a sizable number of refugee and immigrant residents whose limited access to fresh food is compounded by the lack of access to culturally appropriate foods; both problems the Sunnyvale Farmers Market is designed to address.
