Granary Row @ Granary Row

Granary Row is a pop-up market and festival space. It’s a community space, as well as a breeding ground for local businesses.

Granary Row is the very sort of “big idea” that it hopes to foster — a bold urban venture aimed at inspiring and fostering the entrepreneurial ambitions of Salt Lake City’s creative class. At its core, it’s an experiment in ware-steading the Granary with microventures that will make the District their home — in turn sustaining the neighborhood as a place where makers live, work, and play!
