Farmers markets are one of those community events which reflect the old saying, “everything old is new again” and the St. George area has two really good ones – both held on Saturday morning (weather permitting) – worth mentioning.
The Downtown Farmers Market is held every Saturday Saturday from mid-May to the end of October, 8 a.m. to noon in the parking lot of Ancestor Square, located on the northwest corner of St. George Blvd. and Main Street.
In the historic section of downtown St. George, the Market hosts a variety of more than 25 vendors from across Washington and Iron Counties, all with delicious, colorful, affordably priced and homegrown, homemade and/or locally produced fruits and vegetables, free range beef, pork, and lamb; goat, feta, gouda and cheddar cheezes, free range organic eggs, local honey, granola, live plants, herbs, fabric goods, soaps & lotions, jewelry, woodwork, hot coffee, pastries and more. And, while you shop or browse, the Market also features live entertainment featuring local musicians from 9:30 a.m. to noon.
Also held each weekend, Tuacahn Saturday Market is a way to experience the breathtakingly beautiful red rock canyon home of the Tuacahn Center for the Performing Arts in the daylight. The Tuacahn Saturday Market features exceptional local artwork, crafts, food and entertainment with admission and live entertainment free-to-the-public.
Enjoy a delicious pancake breakfast with bacon and juice served from 9 – 11 a.m. in the new Snow Canyon Café or a panini sandwich later in the morning. You may also wish to try some of the tasty treats being offered by vendors along Tuacahn’s tree-lined walkway as you browse displays created by local painters, artists and crafters.
Come see why Tuacahn’s Saturday Market is now a fun St. George tradition for locals and visitors alike. For more information, call (435) 652-3218.
