Countdown to the 2010 Farmer's Market

I've been meaning to do this post since, oh, July. So, sorry, everyone. I have really had the winter blues lately. I don't remember feeling this way last winter. I like it when the snow dumps and dumps and it's a winter wonderland, or at least wonderland-ish. But when it is cold and gray and the inversion blocks out the mountains and the moonlight for weeks at a time, I totally get a touch of the S.A.D.

I've also been thinking about the farmer's market a lot lately. Mostly because I've become obsessed with fresh, locally grown food after watching Food, Inc. But the Farmer's market isn't just about waking up on Saturday and moseying on down in the sunshine for fresh roasted Jack Mormon Coffee lattes, gorgeous seasonal produce that I have no idea what to do with, homemade tacos that are incredibly delicious at 10:00 in the morning, and 25 kinds of hummus, it's also about fabulous arts and crafts and housewares.

Here are some of our favorite vendors from the 2009 Salt Lake City Farmer's Market, Park City Farmer's Market, and the Art's Festival. I hope that they will be back this year. You can find many of them on Etsy so you can create a little bit of summer while you bide your time until June 10th when the Farmer's Market officially starts.

XOXO,
Natalie
