Small but lively!

That’s how I describe last night’s opening of the Sugarhouse Summer Farmers Market and Street Festival. It poured rain and it’s too early for produce, but several vendors and organizations held the event along the sidewalk on Highland Drive in Sugarhouse where a steady stream of shoppers stopped by. Everyone had fun and is looking forward to see this grow.

The Desert Greens Green Party of Utah provided recycling containers and boxes for donations of non-perishable food items for Utah’s Food Bank.

Vendors that were present included:
Free Speech Zone – organizer of the Festival
Cloe Hines of Elemental Inspirations
Sugarhouse Candle Co.
Home Strung Jewelry by Dena

Opening Day of new street festival

Tonight will be the opening of the Sugarhouse Farmers Market and Street Festival in Sugarhouse, SLC, UT from 5:30 – 9pm. The festival will be held each Friday through August 25th.

The Desert Greens Green Party of Utah is providing recycling containers for plastic and paper, aluminum, and glass, as well as launching a summer long food drive for the Utah Food Bank. Containers for non-perishable food items will be strategically placed throughout the festival and will also be available at the Free Speech Zone shop in Sugarhouse during the week.

Please drop by and say hi – I’ll be at the Desert Greens table.
