Wasatch Community Gardens will hold its first-ever Love Local Holiday Market on Saturday, December 3, from 3-8 pm, at Wasatch Community Gardens' Campus (629 E 800 S, SLC). This event will be a celebration of local food, gardening and our vibrant community, and we are seeking vendors and artisans who embody that joy and local emphasis. If you create art, products or food with a focus on gardening or locally sourced materials, please apply to be a vendor here. Vendor applications are due Monday, October 10, at 5 pm.
For background, in conversations with community members during 2020 and 2021, it became clear that there was a strong desire to support Wasatch Community Gardens, a local, grassroots nonprofit, and businesses that are locally owned or using locally sourced ingredients. The idea for our Love Local holiday boxes was born, and we worked with Salt Lake Valley partners to create gift collections chock full of locally made goodies.
The Love Local Holiday Market builds upon this idea of showcasing our local partners. Community members will be invited to join us in-person for holiday cheer and to shop local, directly from participating vendors. Guests can bundle up and enjoy warm beverages, live music, local food, artists, artisans and more.
We hope you'll consider participating in this new community-supporting event!
