The winter season is winding down in Park City, Utah -which means… the PARK CITY FARMER’S MARKET is right around the corner!
This year we open on Wednesday June 6th at The Canyon’s Resort parking lot FROM 12-6PM. MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!!
Hey Park City!
Tomorrow is the LAST Farmer’s Market day for the month of August, make sure to stop by and stock up on fresh local goodies! Check out the rest of this website update, we have some good info to share!
Thank you for all your support with our Ice Cancer with Hockey Fundraiser Hockey Game. We were able to raise a lot of money for the Be The Match Donor Registry, and we are excited to sponsor the fundraiser again next year for Dr. Lisa! We received great support from the local community -thank you for coming out!
In addition, Park City’s own pro skier and videographer, Ian Provo, filmed an awesome video of the Hockey Game for us to share on YouTube! Check out the Undefeated Volker’s Flying Penguins facing off against the Park City Miners!
We hoped you liked the video, but don’t go away just yet, we have some exciting new vendors to tell you about.
First on our list, is Jenson Farm Sweet Corn & Produce. Please remember that these are one of our only GMO-FREE corn. We encourage you to learn about the dangers of GMO’s, and support our farmer’s like Jenson Farm who go out of their way to make sure their food is 100% Natural, with NO Sprays or Pesticides used ever in the entire growing process. Don’t be fooled by farmers who tell you they need to spray, if they researched real farming techniques like Jenson Farm does -they would figure out that they don’t have to spray as well.
A little late because they were busy setting up their awesome new market trailer, but The Flying Fish of Utah is back and ready to offer you the freshest sustainable seafood products!
Here is a list of their current menu.
Stop by and say hello to new vendor, Kathy Cartier, who hand makes some very attractive pieces. You will not find any nicer gift cards anywhere else in town!
Kathy makes some very cool pillow covers!
Next on our list of TOTALLY AWESOME FARMERS is The Garden of Stephen. Stephen is an all natural farmer that uses 100% organic methods, and does not use ANY pesticide sprays whatsoever in any of his plants.
Stephen grows delicious heirloom watermelons that you won’t find anywhere else in the state!
So how do NO SPRAY farmer’s avoid damage from certain bugs and insects that other farmer’s would spray pesticides for? Simple, we actually visited The Garden of Stephen in Salt Lake to see how. Organic farmers have figured out that you can plant certain types of flowers within their fields to ward off bugs. This specific yellow flower you see below does the same job that those toxic pesticides do!!!
And don’t believe any farmer that will tell you they get a higher yield when they spray their tomatoes with poison. These are pictures from Stephen’s NO SPRAY farms, as you can see the tomato yields are incredible with all natural methods. We visited tomato farms that very same day that do spray, and the yields, even though were healthy -did not look anything like Stephen’s you see below.
The Park City Farmer’s Market also took a tour at Smith’s Orchards in Provo. We’ll get you some more info on Smith Orchards soon, but the tour was incredible. Smith Orchards, by far, has the very best Peach Farm setup in the entire state of Utah. More info on Smith Orchards coming soon, but in the meantime, you MUST try these amazing peaches.
Thanks for checking us out Park City, don’t forget to tell your friends and family about the Park City Farmer’s Market -tomorrow from noon to 6pm at The Canyons Resort!

Hello Park City! We hope you have had a great week of Summer weather and July fireworks.
This week, we are updating the website with information on one of our new vendors. Park City, please meet Mr. Dave Miller, of Ole’ Dave’s Birdhouses.
Ole’ Dave make incredible birdhouses by hand. I took the liberty to upload the text from his booth flyer -here goes:
Dave Miller, born in Colorad Springs has always been creating and fixing things. During World War II he was fixing our Aircraft on Naval Ships. Shortly after the war he started creating and building homes, offices, schools and hotels. Dave does not believe in wasting any resource. He has always found a use for what was left over and sending it to a land fill was not an option. He may be one of our earlier champions for creating a “green” world.
After spending 40 years as a Superintendent for Culp Construction Company in Salt Lake City Dave retired in 1986. While their health prevailed Dave and his wife Cathryn traveled across the country enjoying the vast natural wonders of our beautiful contintent win their motor home. When Cathryn’s health declined and was eventually homebound Dave took on the role for caregiver. As caregiver for his wife and sweetheart of 64 years he also spent more time back in his work shop. This shop had been the birth place of one of a kind motorized bikes to parquet doors and paneling and beautiful log cabin birdhouses.
In recent years his eyes became the victim of macular degeneration, a disease that eventually blocks the complete central vision of ones eyesight, leaving only very little peripheral vision. Dave and others with this advance stage of macular degeneration are considered legally blind, unable to drive and read but with good habits and organization can function in their home environment on their own. This past year Dave said a temporary good bye to his wife and after laying her to her rest found he had more time to spend in his workshop. Using materials from his shop he started building bird houses, beautifully constructed log cabin style birdhouses. He used his creations as thank you gifts for those who would drop by with a batch of cookies. His children who recognize the value of his work want to give additional purpose to this labor of love and creative energy and that is the beginning of Ole’ Dave’s Birdhouses.
The housing for Dave’s foul friends should provide upscale living for them and add charm and decor for anyone who is lucky enough to purchase one of Ole’ Dave’s bird houses.
Dave has also created a variety of jewelry boxes that are again one of a kind. He takes special care at honoring the owners of some of these treasures with their name cut out of wood and adorning the front of the chest.
Earlier this year around the first week in February we became convinced that nothing will get this man down. While making a special cut for the roof of yet another unique bird house, Dave just happened to cut off most of his right index finger and into his thumb. A short trip to the ER, a very skilled surgeon, and a minimal time for recovery and Dave is back working in the shop again. His right hand almost looks just like it always had had only with three fingers.
In this time when it could be easy to complain about the economy, how age can sneak up on you and little by little take away some of your very basic faculties, Dave Miller just moves forward and makes the best of what the good Lord has not taken from him yet. He is an inspiration to us and all who know him.
For a special order birdhouse from Ole’ Dave’s Birdhouses call 801-937-4516
