Where to Buy
Utah supports more than 45 markets state wide, offering local communities a buffet of local fruits, vegetables, eggs, cheeses, breads and other added-value products.
A Farmers Market is the best place for you to discover fresh, quality, in-season-produce, as well as discover new food businesses making their product debut.
You can find a market near you by searching our Farmers Market Listing; please note the different days, and length of seasons available.
Browse all the markets on the map or search specifically for your town or zip code.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA):
Community Supported Agriculture is a way for consumers to be directly involved with the farm/farmer that grows their food. At the beginning of the season, CSAs sell “shares” – an upfront cost that enables the farmer to plant his/her crops – and in return, the farmer promises a weekly delivery of seasonal produce from the farm.
Utah has more than 30 CSAs statewide, with a variety of options and seasons. A bit of research is recommended prior to making your decision – some people love the variety of vegetables offered in a CSA, encouraging them to try to new recipes – and others prefer the traditional garden menu.
If you are interested in a CSA membership, visit csautah.org for a complete listing.
Grocery & Specialty Stores:
Spend some time in your community browsing the different stores for local products. Most stores (both local and national chains) will offer at least 20 to 25 local products – generally consisting of more perishable items like milk, eggs and ice cream, at similar prices of their competitors.
Beyond the staple items, be proactive and ask the store personnel: How can I identify Utah products in your store?
Be willing to try new products - substitute your “regular” purchases for a local brand. Some Utah grocery stores offer more than 100 local products.
Company Owned Stores/Online:
Utah food vendors love to interact with their consumers. Many food manufactures have a store or sales office onsite that you can enjoy fresh product. Feed your curiosity and visit your favorite local companies. If tours are available, make your trip an educational experience and take the time to learn about food artisans and/or processing.
In addition, many Utah products are featured at local convention and events. When you try a favorable product, take note of the brand and then search for it later online. Many of the small food businesses are willing to ship product directly to your door. Others offer giveaways via social media channels.
