SALT LAKE CITY - The Winter Farmers Market opened Saturday at the Utah State Fair Park in Salt Lake City in hopes of keeping Utah-grown products in the spotlight.

Utahns have made farmers markets hugely successful over the last few years, and Utah's Own is moving the market indoors to help out producers and buyers of locally grown food.

"All of what you eat during the week I buy at the farmers market because I've grown to enjoy that I can talk to the guy that produced it," said shopper Judy Flint.

With plenty of parking and free admission to the Utah State Fair Park, shoppers can get products from artisans, farmers, bakers and florists.

Shoppers can take advantage of savings and added quality from buying local, plus there are items available at the market that aren't always easy to find elsewhere.

The Winter Farmers Market will be open on the first and third Saturday of each month through March (there will be no markets in December). Market hours will be 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
