Mission Statement

Urban Food Connections of Utah (UFCU) educates the community about local food, regional food producers and the state's proud agricultural heritage. Through a series of programs and events, we help communities incorporate more local and whole foods into their daily diets and provide resources to regional farmers and food producers. These efforts bolster support for sustainable farming practices and increase year-round availability of locally and sustainably-produced food. We strive to build a passionate community around local food and to create dynamic community gathering places, social interaction and sense of place while connecting urban dwellers and consumers with local farmers and food. We support alternative outlets for consumers of all income levels to buy nutritious foods in an atmosphere conducive to the exchange of information and ideas between producers and consumers. Through these efforts UFCU educates the community about our region's bounty and those who labor to produce it.


Over the last 28 years (and counting!), the Downtown Farmers Market has operated the largest farmers market in the West, home to over 200 local farmers and food purveyors accompanied by 150 artisan and creative vendors, and engaging over 200,000 weekly community members.
