Vegan in Park City, Utah?

Where are the Healthy & Conscious SuperFoods in Park City, Utah?

So you’re visiting Park City this Summer and you’ve been on a recent health kick. You’ve been juicing veggies and fruits, tried several raw food places, given up eating meats, and even doing some Yoga. You’re thinking ‘ski resort town in the mountains, hiking, biking etc.’ -there must be dozens of healthy conscious places to eat right? Wrong!

Welcome to Park City, Utah. Training ground to many of the world’s top athletes. Unfortunately, when it comes to healthy conscious eating, Park City’s vast array of fine dining lacks heavy. As popular as Vegan places are elsewhere in the country, there still isn’t a single Vegan restaurant on Main St in Park City. Also, there currently aren’t any restaurants in the local area that promote a non-GMO (genetically modified) food menu (if you know of one or one opening soon -please let us know). We often receive messages to our website from people looking for vegan options in Park City, so we thought we’d make this post just for all you health conscious folks visiting Park City this year.

Hello I'm Vegan

The problem with being Vegan, is that most restaurants don’t understand. They think they can add something to their menu ‘without meat’ and all will be happy. It doesn’t work that way. Most Vegans have made their lifestyle choice for more than just the food itself, they are interested in a better world that doesn’t create unnecessary suffering to all animals. Therefore, many Vegans would rather cook at home, than support a restaurant which is ‘Vegan-friendly’. To a Vegan -a truly ‘Vegan-friendly’ place means they do not serve any dishes with animals on their entire menu. Vegans do not like the thought of their dollars supporting restaurants that also serve meat dishes, and have real concerns regarding cross contamination with the utensils used to prepare their food.

If you’re wanting to eat a non-GMO, 100% Organic, Vegan meal in Park City, you are more than likely purchasing your ingredients from us at the Farmer’s Market each week and preparing them at home! However, if you want to keep your trip as a ‘vacation’ and not have to do the work, there is a great local option. We would recommend hiring Park City’s most health conscious chef, Chef Jason of Park City Medical Center:

HOLISTIC CHEF-WELLNESS COACH

“STOP DIETING and LEARN HOW TO EAT”
-CHEF JASON KIEFFER

If hiring a private chef is too much for you, not to worry, there are a couple places in Park City that serve great Vegan options and juice bars:

1. Fairweather Natural FoodsFAIRWEATHER NATURAL FOODS

Fairweather Natural Foods is Park City’s only locally owned natural food market and café! Fresh pressed organic juices and fruit smoothies are made to order in the café. The store also offers an array of organic, vegan and select gluten-free baked goods, as well as sandwiches, salads, and vegan soups, made fresh daily.

2. Booster Juice Park City

BOOSTER JUICE IN PARK CITY, UTAH

Booster Juice is Park City’s juice and smoothie bar dedicated to providing you the premium smoothie experience. A healthy alternative to fast food! Ask them about their wheatgrass shot specials.

What are your healthy choices for eating locally in Park City? Know of any other Vegan choices we can add to this list? If you hear of something new, please let us know so we can tell the Park City Farmer’s Market community. Thank you and happy eating!  🙂

Park City Farmer’s Market says NO to GMO!

US lawmakers may not be willing to give the people what they want due to corporate “influencers”, however, the Park City, Utah Farmer’s Market does not bow down to such bologna. We want YOU to know exactly what you are getting when you purchase from the PC Farmer’s Market -YOU have a right to know! That is why the 2013 market will not allow any genetically modified ingredients (GMO’s) by any of our vendors in their products or foods.

Park City says NO to GMO!

 

 

Park City Farmer’s Market Ice’s Cancer with Hockey!

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!

#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!
