Last weekend while taking care of all the random errands that just don’t happen during the week, we drove by an indoor farmer’s market that I’d seen a few times, but had never actually passed on a weekend when it’s open. I squealed a little and Ryan looked at me like I was crazy because he was on the phone. It happens.
As soon as he got off the phone I told him that we had to turn around. The idea of a farmer’s market in Utah in February is pretty thrilling, as it’s pretty much summer in the rest of the country before the real farmer’s market here gets going. There were only a few vendor inside, but a huge table of beautiful breads caught our eye immediately and we left with two loaves.
If you live in or near Salt Lake, be sure to visit the Winter Farmer’s Market at 1050 S. State Street, if for no other reason than this beautiful bread. It comes from Volker’s Bakery and is also available at the Park City Farmer’s Market in the summer. We tried the orange cranberry (which made insane french toast) and the asiago basil, but everything looked delicious!
