  3. I love the farmers market because what better way to try new things, see new things or hear new things? My wife and I have made plenty of meals from what we bought at past markets. The energy is so amazing, the laughter and smiles are awesome. I love the farmers market because no matter my budget for that week, I’m able to leave with something pretty neat, and tasty.

  4. Treasures! I love the treasures I find at the Farmer’s Market! Once I found an outdoor flower ornament made from spoons and the base is a brake disc, it even came with a cute lady bug! My regret is that I didn’t buy more than one, or I would have a bouquet. I also found the coolest fold into wooden chairs that are so comfy around a camp fire or just to hang out with friends on a summer night. I loved them so much I went back for a rocker set and mini table! A tradition is to get a loaf of cranberry orange bread and then on Sunday I make French toast for breakfast! Not to be forgotten is the homemade peach salsa, oh yum! Yep, loads of treasures make the Farmer’s market a must do!

  6. I am 18 years old & still look forward to my Mommy & Daughter dates to the Ogden Farmers Market…
    It started out so simple, just a beautiful sight to see our local community support one another, but now it’s even bigger than that it’s a TRADITION.
    Waking up at 9 am excited and ready to take on the day & find new treasures to take home. First stop is ALWAYS going to Great Harvest Bread Co. and splitting a HUGE cinnamon roll with chocolate milk & then finally getting to see new or old smiling faces in every booth!
    Man I love this city of mine <3

  7. Where is the farm section? We asked numerous times to bring our baby goats and we were told no. We run a booth and business @Beehive Naturals.
