#ParkCity Farmer’s Market Says NO to GMO! NO to @MonsantoCo!

Attention Park City Farmer’s Market patrons, Farmer’s Market vendors, and especially Farmer’s Market FARMER’S and FOOD Vendors.

We can no longer ignore the world we have created for our children. Our ignorance is destroying our planet at an alarming rate. We at the Farmer’s Market have always tried to bring you great product -and we pass all our State inspections with flying colors. However, Volker and the Park City Farmer’s Market Team and Staff is making a renewed dedication to YOU and OUR WORLD to go above and beyond what any government regulation would ever require. We want the PARK CITY Farmer’s Market to be the example of all other Farmer’s Markets in the world.

This is what the Park City Farmer’s Market believes and wants to inspire in others locally to spread amongst their friends:

  • We do not believe in GMO or any product produced with a Monsanto Brand Seed or Monsanto Anything. If you are using GMO products of any kind, please contact Volker as soon as possible.  We will help you convert to organic or no spray non-gmo product and pay the difference in your cost. We will even help you grow pesticide-free product if it is not available in Utah.

  • We do not believe in spraying PESTICIDES on ANY plants or food, especially those that will later be consumed by human beings. Farmer’s that do so are GUILTY of polluting our waters and destruction of our bee and much needed insect population. If bees were to die off, which they are dying rapidly already -scientist say ALL human food in the world would disappear in less than 4 years. We will be interviewing our Farmer’s that claim “No Pesticides Spray” -WE WANT TO PROMOTE YOU MORE!  As a “thank you” for protecting our environment -All Farmer’s who have produce in the 2012 Farmer’s Market that uses no Pesticides will get preferential booth placement at the Farmer’s Market along our new “No Spray” zone.  
  • We are a Utah Farmer’s Market, therefore we want to sell UTAH Produce. We do not believe in shipping our produce in from outside of UTAH. California produce should be sold in California. Mexico tomatoes should be sold in Mexico. It’s not that we are against the product -we are against the oil and fuel burned for those products to get here such long distances.

Farmers and Vendors we need your help!

If you use organic methods for your products and would like to share your story -please contact the market so we can make you a guest blogger on our site!

PARK CITY WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Please share this information with your friends. Also, we are very much in need of a Vegetarian Option Food Vendor, or anyone that has a ready food business that is veggie or vegan option. Please contact the market asap if you are intersted at VolkersBakery@Gmail.com

THANK YOU PARK CITY!

Ole’ Dave’s Birdhouses – #ParkCity Farmer’s Market @TheCanyons

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

Thanks Park City! We hope to see you tomorrow at The Canyons Resort for the last market of July. We’re getting into a good time of the season, lots of fresh fruits and vegetables so come on out!  😀

#ParkCity World Cup Dreams Foundation in Park City, Utah

Attention all Park City Farmer’s Market fans. Many of you don’t know me. My name is Carlos Gonzalez, and have been helping Volker with this website and his bakery website for some time now. Last Wednesday at the market while taking photos for this site, I met a young gentleman and athelete by the name of Mathew T. Lints of World Cup Dreams Foundation that we were very impressed with and Volker has sponsored several years. I told Mathew that I would try to help him through the market website.

Please take a look at the following that I received from Mathew:

 

 

 

 

And any Park City athletes out there, I’m sure you can appreciate the words from the athletes themselves, so I am going to copy and paste Mathew’s email for you to read right here:

July 6, 2011

Dear Carlos,

I hope this letter finds you well and as excited as I am about the coming of Summer. 2011 finds me ever committed to becoming a member of the U.S. Speed Skating Team and competing in the 2014 Winter Olympics.

My goal is to raise $30,000.00 for the 2011 season which starts April 15, 2011 and goes through March 21, 2012 with a three week rest period during March 22 through April 14, each year.

The funds I hope to raise will cover training costs, equipment, coaching and ice time at the Utah Olympic Oval, and other travel costs for the season. With your help, I have the chance to make the U.S. Team and representing our country in the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

I am currently working with a local non-profit, World Cup Dreams Foundation. The Foundation was started by former U.S. Ski Team members Erik Schlopy and Bryon Friedman. Erik and Bryon created the foundation 5 years ago with the goal of raising money to provide financial support and disability insurance to the top alpine skiers in the country. The foundation has provided over $250,000 in athlete grants.  Their foundation has reached out to offer support to me and I am proud to be a part of such an organization. Thanks to WCDF, I too am going to be able to focus on my “World Cup Dreams.”

I understand the magnitude of support and backing required for this undertaking, and I have not entered into this lightly. Recently, I made “B” level ice, which is just a step below World Cup athletes. I am 1.6 seconds away from tying the fastest time in the men’s 100 meter start for the men’s 500 meter all-out sprint race. I have worked hard to shave 10 seconds off of my 400 meter flying-lap time in just one season. I’ve been told this is relatively unheard of so I take that as a positive sign. On March 20-22, 2009, I competed in my first Americas Cup Speed Skating event hosted at the Utah Olympic Oval and shattered four personal records in the men’s 500m, 1,000m, and 1,500m races. I had the fortune of living in North Carolina, from July 22, 2010 until September 15, 2010, training one-on-one with Speed Skater Dan Jansen and USA Bobsled 1 Randy Will. Also, I was fortunate to have a meeting with Dr. Eric Heiden, 5-time speed skating Gold Medalist at the 1980 Lake Placid Winter Olympic Games. Dr Heiden is willing to teach me the techniques and dry land methods that made him so successful.

I continue to improve, and I’m eager to raise the funds required to train at this level. That is why I’m asking for your help. Any amount of support to help me reach my goal is greatly appreciated. Please share this information with others you may know that would be able and willing to support my endeavors. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at any time. I appreciate the time you have taken to read this letter. Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Mathew T. Lints
