Park City has the wonderful privilege every summer to offer the community the Park Silly Sunday Market! The market began June 2 and runs until September 22, so the good news is there is still time left to visit if you haven't made it out yet!

The mission of the market is to provide “an eco friendly open air market, street festival and commUnity forum where neighbors and friends come together to celebrate our commUnity of fun and funky Park Sillians.” The Sunday market began with the intention of growing and expanding the experience of the inclusive quality of commUnity and to also create worldwide recognition of Park City, Utah as the place where local, national and international causes are brought to light and addressed in the spirit of celebration and connectedness. Park Silly is an enjoyable activity to spend time with friends or family. Even four legged family members are allowed! 

While at the market, you can enjoy delicious food, arts and crafts as well as fresh fruits and vegetables to take home to cook up tasty dinners for the week ahead. The market begins at 10am and ends at 5pm, perfect for early risers and those who prefer to sleep in! Regardless of the time you show up, food will be available throughout the entire day. Whether you are in the mood for a substantial meal, a sweet treat or something to cool you off from the summer heat, there are options for you! 

Popular vendors for grabbing a yummy treat are Auntie Em’s Bakery or Wasatch Creamery. Each offering unique flavors and the best news is they are both local to Utah, so your dollars are not only satisfying your sweet tooth, but supporting local food artisans. Auntie Em’s is located inside the Kimball Art Center and sells everything from hearty fruit pies to double chocolate peanut butter cookies. Wasatch Creamery locals on the cold treats like ice cream! Each ice cream is crafted in small batches. Flavors right now include seasonal ingredients like cherry, strawberry-rhubarb and cherry. If you are looking for something a little richer, salted oreo, brown butter or mud pie might be just what you are looking for. 

Other popular vendors offering more size-able meals include Freshies and Praise Cheezus. Freshies has a food truck at the Sunday market as well as a brick and mortar in Park City and as of recently in Salt Lake City. Although Utah isn’t known for seafood, Freshies specializes in fresh lobster rolls. Lobster is flown in every day, making this a unique and very popular food truck at the market. Praise Cheezus on the other hand focuses on all things cheese. Could anything be better than melted cheese? Basically this booth is whipping up the best grown-up grilled cheese sandwiches you’ll ever have. While a grilled cheese seems basic, their menu is creative and offers the right amount of balance between keeping ingredients simple and experimenting with innovative flavors. 

Whether you are staying for the day or just making a quick trip to the market, be sure to stop by any of the vendors selling their passions. Making food is no easy task, not to mention making food that tastes amazing! All we need in life is love… and food! So fill your bellies up in the heart of Park City on Historic Main Street every Sunday.
