Gardeners Market continues on Saturdays at Merlin Olsen Park

If you haven’t been to the Cache Valley Gardeners Market this year already, this Saturday would be a great time to visit as Tom Profitt, chairman of the market’s advisory board, says there will be a lot of good salad greens for sale this week, and possibly some chard. Profitt said there are also a couple of vendors from USU’s organic program who will be in attendance with their so-called “hoop houses.” “A lot of times they’re called high tunnels where it’s a covered environment where plants are put in the ground but under a cover … with a low covering either low or high,” Profitt said. “We’ve actually had last week, a lady come down with some strawberries, we’ve also had a vendor from that same program who anticipates having some tomatoes to bring down in the next couple of weeks.” It’s free to visit the market, and it takes place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday on the west end of Merlin Olsen Central Park in Logan. Along with vegetable vendors, there are craft booths, local community information booths, breads, coffees and other goods, as well as live music. There’s no cost to visit the market.
