LOGAN-The Cache Valley Gardner’s Market has become a favorite weekend activity for many families in and outside of the county this summer. Located on the grounds around the Historic Cache County Courthouse, 199 South Main Street, on Saturday mornings from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.

Visitors can peruse some of the best produce, crafts, listen to local musicians and taste some of the most delicious hot food Cache Valley has to offer.

The market is under the umbrella of a non-profit 501(c), the Sustainable Agriculture Association of the Bear River’s board of directors. Board member Mary Laine said one of the reasons for the Gardner’s Market success is the board is made up of nine members who have a stake in the summer and fall activity. Most of the board members have booths in it she said.

Because they are a nonprofit, the board has to be careful who can participate, it is set up to support local farmers.

“It is a home grown market,” said Laine. “Vendors have to grow it or make it themselves. Specialty vendors can only come once or twice during the season.”

The Gardner’s Market will be open until October and should be a reflection of the community, said Laine.

She said many of the Arizonans that spend summers in Logan not only shop the Gardner’s Market, but some have craft booths too.

“We have a lot for the public to see,” Laine said. “I think we have excellent music too.”
