Farmers Market Drawing Record Crowds

(KCPW News)  Salt Lake City’s Downtown Farmer’s Market opened June 11th with record-setting attendance, an estimated 11,000 people.  However, 19 years ago when the Downtown Alliance started the Farmers Market, they had to recruit farmers and coax them to come to the city.

KCPW’s Janice Evans spoke to Director of Special Events Kim Angeli of the Downtown Alliance, and several vendors, about what makes the market a favored destination in Salt Lake City on Saturday mornings for this audio postcard.
