Urban Food Connections of Utah’s Farmers Market Winter Holiday Guide

This holiday season, give the gift of good food while supporting local farmers and food crafters. At Urban Food Connections of Utah’s Winter Market at The Gateway, you’ll find the makings for wholesome winter feasts, along with unique gifts that nourish the body, the earth, and our local community.

We’ve gathered some ideas for delicious and distinctive stocking stuffers and host gifts, as well as fixings for creating a sustainably sourced goodie basket. These are gifts with real people and stories behind them. At the farmers market, you can meet the makers, learn about their crafts, and know that you’re helping family farmers and small food businesses thrive. We’ve also included online ordering options when available.

As the days turn cold, farmers market vendors count on loyal customers like you to help sustain their businesses year-round. In this time of gratitude, we thank you for supporting Urban Food Connections of Utah  and our market community throughout the year.
