Utah cherries + Pioneer Day = two peas in a pod

For those green-thumb-challenged folk who haven't quite got growing seasons down (you know who you are, CW letter writers), the Downtown Farmers Market has alerted us to the arrival of fresh local produce. Starting tomorrow, you can expect:
Sweet, tart, and Rainier cherries; raspberries; strawberries; melons from southern Utah; apricots; carrots; green beans; early tomatoes; corn; salad greens; beets; spinach; chard; bok choy; rhubarb; leeks; onions; and herbs.
Begin your foraging Saturday mornings at Historic Pioneer Park (300 West and 300 South) from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. through Oct. 18. Oh, and enjoy the experimental folky tunes of Calico beginning at 11 a.m. (Jerre Wroble)

  1. Yum! I got a huge bag of cherries at the FM last week for $5. Also, buy something from Amanda, an adorable blonde who sells homegrown herbs grown in her back yard in Sugar House and also sells her own unique flavors of hummus! I bought tomato-basil last week; she sells lemon-dill and about three other varieties. Also, the fresh egg vendor is great--eggs to die for.
