Celebrating themes from Utah's bees to pets to sustainable sweets, the University of Utah's on-campus farmer's market will offer local produce and art beginning this week through early October.
The weekly Thursday market which is open to the public invites local growers and artisans to supply fresh produce, arts and crafts and other wares. The market will kick off Thursday with Sustainability Day, educating shoppers about recycling, solar power and other issues.
This year, U. students and anyone using food stamps can buy two market tokens for the price of one under a new program. The tokens are good for produce and for prepared foods, such as fresh breads and salsas.
