News: Downtown Farmers Market Music Schedule

Downtown Farmers Market Music schedule
Full lineup of local acts playing in Pioneer Park Saturday mornings released.
Salt Lake City (July 9, 2012) - The Downtown Farmers Market has announced its full lineup of musicians that will hit the stage each Saturday from 11am to 1pm on the south lawn of Pioneer Park. "Music at the Market," presented with support from City Weekly and the Salt Lake Arts Council was developed to support local musicians and add to the festive atmosphere market-goers experience while shopping for fresh produce, prepared foods, as well as arts and crafts.
Featured performers include Holy Water Buffalo, The Suicycles, The Hot Club of Zion, Matteo, The Folka Dots, The Mighty Sequoyah, Pour Horse, Lady Murasaki and more. In addition to the live acts on stage, impromptu street performers (buskers) create a shopping ambiance unique to the Downtown Farmers Market.
"The consistent growth of the region´s local music scene has enabled us to bring current and fresh, local bands to our music stage everyseason," said Kristin Beck, Program Coordinator for Downtown Farmers Market. "I´m especially proud of this season´s music schedule and I hope that visitors to the Market discover something new that they may not have seen or heard before."
One of the goals of the Market when it began 20 years ago was to provide a venue to connect local vendors and the public. While that still is a focus today, other important initiatives, specifically environmental awareness and consciousness, have proved successful at the Market.
All music is powered by Creative Energy Solutions: a local residential and commercial solar solutions company. "Creative Energies is very happy to be a sponsor of the 2012 Downtown Farmers Market," said Charlie Boas, CEO of Creative Energies. "As a local solar energy installer for homes and businesses with more than 12 years of experience, we believe that buying locally is the best way support the economy." 
The Downtown Farmers Market is open Saturday mornings from 8 AM - 1 PM through October 27. The Tuesday evening Harvest Market begins August 7 and is open from 4 PM to dusk. Both events are held in Historic Pioneer Park.
