Musicians & Artistic Services


Market Musicians (formerly Busker program)

Due to unforeseen circumstances related to the COVID 19 pandemic, the Market Muisicians and Artistic Services portion of the Downtown Farmers Market is postponed for the 2020 season. We are taking this action to protect the health and safety of our patrons and vendors. We continue to communicate with Utah’s COVID 19 Task Force, as well as our local and state officials. We appreciate your understanding and support at this time, and we are just as disappointed about this as you are. Working together, we will be able to come together in the future and to support our artist community once again.

NOTE: Face painters, cartoonists, caricature artists and balloon twisters must register as an Artistic Services Vendor, NOT as a Market Musician.

Artistic Services

The Artistic Services category is limited to balloon twisters, face painters & caricature artists. Preapproval is required for any other discipline/talent.

NOW REQUIRED STARTING SUMMER 2019 SEASON: Face painters and bodywork professionals are required to provide a Certificate of Liability Insurance in the amount of one million dollars ($1,000,000) or greater for each market attended. Downtown Farmers Market/Urban Food Connections of Utah must be named as an “Additional Insured” on the Certificate. If you have insurance, speak with your agent about adding UFCU. If you do not currently have insurance, please plan to get insurance before the start of the season.

An option for bodywork professionals acquiring insurance: Beauty and Bodywork Insurance
