June 13 marks the day that many of us have all been waiting for, the official opening day of the Downtown Farmers Market. Before we all grab our reusable bags and push our way through the crowds of people looking to get their delicious, dirt-dusted veggies, a kick-off fundraiser must take place. If you were not fortunate enough to hear about it or get tickets to this event, mark your calendar for next year as this is truly one of Salt Lake’s finest. SLUG was granted one of the limited media passes to give you an exclusive look at all the amazing things that take place during the Farmers Market fundraiser. Whether it was the silent auction filled with local goodies or the unique cocktails, beers and food being provided by local vendors there was something that could satisy anyone looking to help grow Utah’s expanding local scene.
