September Events in Park City


Farmers’ Market at Canyons Resort

Farmers’ Markets have become a popular venue in the Park City area, and if you’re looking to stock up on heirloom tomatoes, purple onions, cloves, fresh tomatoes, corn, and cauliflower, Park City is the place to do it.

Held at the Canyons Resort in Park City (off Highway 224), the farmers’ market takes place every Wednesday through the fall between 12:00 noon and 6:00 p.m.

Support local farmers and vendors who display their wares at the market. Enjoy a great assortment of fresh Utah fruits and vegetables that you won’t find anywhere else.

Enjoy live music, fun, food, fresh breads, and local produce. You can find the farmers’ market in the big resort parking lot, located right off Highway 224.

As a Park City tradition, The Farmer’s Market in Park City opens for its 13th season this year. The market originally started at the Park City Mountain Resort, but moved to the Canyons Resort before the Winter Olympics stared in 2002.

Volker Ritzinger has kept the market alive since 2002. He started the market at Park City Mountain Resort; however the resort shut down just before the Olympics. Since then, authorities told him they didn’t have room for the venue. Two weeks later, he moved the Farmers’ Market to a convenient location at the Canyons Resort, and the tradition lives on.

Follow that tradition and take a drive to the Canyons Resort, located about 20 minutes from downtown. Find some great deals on produce while enjoying live music, art and jewelry displays, and new people to mingle with.
