The award-winning Farmers Market Ogden is back for another season full of summer Saturdays. Last year, Farmers Market Ogden was awarded the Indie Ogden “Best Place for Family Fun” title and this year there will be more local produce, community activities, live music and pop up art.
With over 200 vendors spanning three full blocks of Historic 25th Street and businesses welcomed to display their wares on the sidewalks, summer Saturdays offer a day out for shopping local, stocking up on fresh produce and connecting with the community.
Outdoor yoga with And She’s Dope Too will be offered inside the Ogden Amphitheater at 9:00 a.m., and an additional four community activity spaces will switch out weekly offering new ways to engage and learn about the community. Live music performances occur throughout the day and the lineup is posted weekly.
As a platform for vendors and businesses to thrive and the community to mingle, Farmers Market Ogden acts as a preview of a much larger community movement to support local businesses.
“We have been here as a Boba shop for about 6 years and the market affects us greatly, a lot of people come down and we get a lot of exposure from it,” shares Henry Liu, owner of Pearl Milk Tea Club on Historic 25th Street, “I believe why we are still here is because it brings so many people down here it actually made us keep going.”
Ryan Tippetts of Sunshine Family Farms says, “When we go back to the idea of supporting our local community- we think Farmers Market Ogden. Everyone is friendly, and we make a lot of friends and connections with local people by chatting to everyone. It’s a great resource to share, they do a lot for consumer and farmer.”
Farmers Market Ogden has also announced its first line of branded merchandise printed locally at Stone Mountain Press. The line will be available for purchase every Saturday at the Farmers Market Ogden stand by the Ogden Downtown Alliance info booth at the corner of 25th and Grant.
