Farmers Market Ogden returns to Historic 25th Street this summer with more opportunities to buy fresh, buy local! Join us for 17 weeks of supporting local produce, artisan, grocery, and prepared food vendors. Farmers Market Ogden will run Saturdays, May 22 through September 11, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. (formerly 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.).
Last summer, we held a modified version of Farmers Market Ogden entirely in the 300 block of Historic 25th Street, with grocery vendors only. This summer, we are thrilled to be planning a return to our typical Farmers Market Ogden layout spanning three full blocks of Historic 25th Street from Wall Ave. to Washington Blvd. Along with this expansion, we are pleased to welcome live music back into the market!
Community yoga will be held every market Saturday in the Municipal Park at 9 a.m. – just remember to bring your own mat. Farmers Market Ogden also is an authorized SNAP/EBT, DUFB, and Produce RX retailer. Use these benefits at Farmers Market Ogden by visiting the info booth at the intersection of Historic 25th Street and Grant Avenue. SNAP benefits can be used to purchase any SNAP-eligible foods, including fruits, veggies, herbs, meats, fish, poultry, baked goods, breads, dairy, and more.
A key component of Farmers Market Ogden is the participation of Historic 25th Street businesses. We encourage market attendees to plan extra time to browse the galleries, retail stores, and other local businesses on Historic 25th Street and Washington Boulevard, as well as in Nine Rails Creative District and The Junction. Grab a bite to eat at one of the local restaurants before browsing the shops for artisan goods and other creations.
We are staying informed on the situation surrounding COVID-19 and will continue to evaluate Farmers Market Ogden moving forward as suggested by the local health department and city officials.
