“I’m going to have fun activities throughout the season,” Shiree Duncan, organizer of this year’s market, said. June 1 will be kids’ day at the market, featuring child-friendly activities in collaboration with the BEACON After School program, and Sept. 7 will feature a chef cook-off to celebrate “eat local week” in Moab.
This week’s market will feature produce, prepared food, and arts and crafts vendors.
“I would say there’s at least going to be a dozen vendors if not more this Friday, and that will increase throughout the season,” Duncan said. Among those participating this Friday will be Sundial Medicinals, Wild Bloom Fermentation, the Yummy Town food truck and Lao’s Curry. As to produce available, Duncan said, “A lot of spring greens, spinach, arugula and lettuce are in season right now.”
This week’s market will also feature live music by Haley Noel Austin, who will be playing the banjo.
