The Sunnyvale Farmers Market (SFM) is located in Sunnyvale Park (4013 South 700 West, Salt Lake City, Utah, 84123.) The market is open 12-2 pm, every Saturday, from the second week of June through the second week of October. The market offers a discount to those customers who are eligible to receive EBT, SSI or WIC benefits. The SFM also operates a food pantry that distributes primarily unprocessed food staples from 12:30 p.m. on Saturdays, while supplies last. Additionally, kids can access a free lunch on Saturdays in the park from 11-12 a.m. The SFM also proudly partners with the Green Urban Lunchbox to often offer customers gleaned fruit at no cost, throughout the summer.

About Sunnyvale Park

Sunnyvale Park is located at 4013 South 700 West in Salt Lake City. It's home to the Sunnyvale Farmers Market from June until mid-October, each year. 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.

When not hosting the market, the park is used by the Granite School District as one of many sites hosting a Summer Meals Program (SMP). The SMP is designed to bridge the hunger gap faced by the many children who go underfed during the summer months when they don’t have access to their school’s lunch program. In 2017, the SFM extended Granite's Summer Meals effort by implementing a Saturday meals program to serve kids during the school year.

As one of the only public green spaces readily available to neighborhood residents, the park is also home to a youth soccer league coordinated by the Sunnyvale Neighborhood Center.
