Holladay Farmers Market

 June 4 – October 29

Holladay Village Plaza 

2300 E. Murray Holladay Road


Holladay, Utah - For the past six years, residents of Holladay and the surrounded area have enjoyed spending their summer Saturdays perusing the wares at the Holladay Farmers Market. Held from June 4 to Oct. 29 at the Holladay Village Plaza at 2300 E. Murray Holladay Road, the goal of the market is to capture all of the seasons of farming in Utah.

“From early greens in June to corn in July, tomatoes in August, peaches in September, and lots of pumpkins in October,” Maryann Alston said, who is one of the managers of the Wasatch Front Farmers Market, a collection of farmers markets around the county including the Holladay Farmers Market.

Alston said the Wasatch Farmers Market was approached by Holladay City to start a small farm and food-focused market on their new village plaza.

“The goal of both Holladay City and the Wasatch Front Farmers Market was to create a weekly community gathering place highlighting local farmers and food artisans,” Alston said.

The Holladay Farmers Market hosts approximately 40 to 50 local farmers and food artisans each week with anywhere between 500 to 1,000 in attendance. Along with the market, a local musician also performs at the market from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. each market day.

“The market boasts lots of fresh produce, lamb, farm-fresh eggs, jam, salsa, barbecue sauce, hot sauces, spices, fresh Alaskan fish, grass-fed beef, baked goods and pies,” Alston said. “We also have a petting zoo sponsored by the Farm at Gardner Village.”

Since the Wasatch Farmers Market for the past six years, the markets have been able to develop a significant vendor pool.

“However, we do have a few newcomers to the local food scene: Nova Granola, Olsen Lamb and Wool, Brownie Brothers and Dira’s Sauce,” Alston said. “We are still looking for more farmers and unique food artisans. We welcome home gardeners to the market, as well. All farmers and gardeners can attend our markets for free.”

When it comes to the Holladay Farmers Market, one of the more unique aspects of the market is the fun location.

“We are centered between dozens of other small, locally owned businesses. You get a one-of-a-kind shopping experience at this market. Drink a cup of coffee at 3 Cups Coffee, shop at the farmers market and cap off the day with lunch at one of the unique food establishments on the plaza,” Alston said. “And, last but not least, the Farm at Gardner Village brings their ponies and farm animals for the public to visit at the market.”
