PARK CITY – If you like fresh food straight from the farm, you will love the Park City Famers Market.
The market that turns 20the Season, has been run by Volker Ritzinger since 2001. Ritzinger, who also runs Volkers bakery and sets up his own stand in the market every Wednesday, calls it an affair of the heart.
“We’re glad we survived last year … we were open … but this year better than ever!”
Framers come from across the state to sell in Park City. Usually the sellers spread out in their own hometowns and regions on the weekends, making Wednesday the perfect day to get them all in one place at the same time. There is only one rule for farmers who want to set up a stand in the market.
“No GMOs allowed,” says Ritzinger. “They all have to be organic, otherwise they can’t come.”
The organic food really makes the market special, along with the great people you meet while walking around. There really is no better way to spend a few hours on a Wednesday in summer than walking around this kindness lot.
The Park City Farmer’s Market is now open every Wednesday through October 27th Octoberthe. Hours of operation are 11am to 5pm on the Silver King Parking Lot, right in the heart of Park City.
