Winter wonderland

The Downtown Farmers Market, which started in 1992, has become a summertime staple in Salt Lake City. The open-air market draws tens of thousands of people to Pioneer Park each week between the months of June and October.

Its popularity pushed organizers to spawn pop-up style markets last winter. This winter, the farmers market found a more permanent home.

The Winter Farmers Market debuted at the Rio Grande Depot (300 S. Rio Grande Street) in November, operating every other week. It will run again this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and continue its bi-weekly schedule until April 19.

Here are some of the sites of the patrons, purveyors and artisan products I captured at the market the previous time it was in session.
