We had such a great time chatting with all the people that came through the Salt Lake City Farmers Market last weekend; furniture lovers, foodies, aspiring woodworkers, mom and dads, little kids and dogs. It was a grand parade!
Clayton got up bright and early to load up the truck and haul everything over to the market to be ready when gates opened at 8am. The kids and I rolled in around nine or ten and took a leisurely spin around the market, picking up treats and taking in the sites. We had a lovely picnic in the grass by our booth, in between talking shop as people popped into the booth. We can never resist a nutty Edam Cheese from Rockhill Creamery, perfect with one of Vosen Bakery’s baguettes. And this year we discovered Yee Haw Pickles; even the kids loved their slightly spicy dilly beans!
We sold lots of serving boards, some in cherry, walnut or oak, even a few in locally harvested scrub oak! My favorites are the ones with live edges, the bark all rugged and raw, a reminder of the history of the piece. It gives a beautiful, organic look.
We also had lots of peg boards. I use ours to hold dozens of coats in the entryway; the shaped pegs are perfect for keeping several coats on one peg. I think they’d also look great in a kitchen, holding cooking utensils, pots or even live-edge serving boards!
We’re looking forward to tomorrow, to meeting new folks and seeing familiar faces, and of course to all that amazing food! If you’re coming to the Salt Lake City Farmers Market, make sure to come on by and say hello!
