For all you folks that love the fresh produce or handmade crafts found only at the Ogden Farmers Market, don't hang up your hats just yet, because the market is not going anywhere for a while. Blessed by the excessive amounts of moisture we received this summer, there is a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables still being harvested late in the season. Consequently, Downtown Ogden Inc. has announced that the Ogden Farmers Market's figurative doors are to be kept open throughout the month of October, instead of shutting them for the season at the end of September.
This market is normally stocked with 150 local farmers and artists selling their unique products. You can find anything from fresh food, to handmade crafts, to flower arrangements. Just bring your cash and curiosity when you go. There are a lot of interesting items for sale, each with a unique history. Prepare to spend some time getting to know the sellers, as they will give you their unique insights about their products. You'll find these folks are some of the friendliest, most down-to-earth people around. Even if you don't find anything you want to buy, you will at least come away with a few new friends.
This market will be running at the Ogden Municipal Gardens in downtown Ogden every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The market extends from the Gardens to Historic 25th Street so be sure you don't miss a stand.
