Kathy Stephenson | The Salt Lake Tribune There may be snow outside, but Utahns will still be able to get greenhouse tomatoes and other fresh produce at two winter markets taking place on Saturday, Nov. 17.

Summer may be over, but Utahns can still get fresh food straight from the source on Saturday, Nov. 17, at the kick-off of the new Downtown “pop up” market.

Sponsored by the Downtown Alliance, the market runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Rico Warehouse, 545 W. 700 South, Salt Lake City. This winter market will “pop up” once each month through April at a different Salt Lake City location. (This week’s vendor list is posted below)

Can’t make it to this market? There are two other options:

State Fairpark Saturday market • On the first and third Saturday of each month, through March 16, vendors will sell produce, food products, crafts and holiday items at the The Utah State Fair Park, 155 N. 1000 West, Salt Lake City. The market is open this Saturday, Nov. 17, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Closed Dec. 15 and 29). For information, call 801-538-8400 or visit utahstatefair.com/wintermarket.

Wheeler Farm Sunday market • Produce and other items from local venders will be sold on the first Sunday of every month at Wheeler Farm, 6351 S. 900 East, Murray.
