Craft Lake City’s Second Annual Craft Lake City Holiday Market started today. RadioACTive got the inside scoop on the online market and virtual meetups with local makers, featuring:

  • Amy Stocks, community inclusion and event coordinator at Craft Lake City. CLC is a nonprofit with a mission to educate, promote and inspire local artisans while elevating the creative culture of the Utah arts community through science, technology and art.
  • Elif Ekin, Bohemian Baklava. Elif punks out traditional Turkish Baklava with different flavor infusions, syrups and nut mixtures. Her baklava was a favorite in Martha Stewart's kitchen and was in Everyday Food magazine November 2008. Supplying to cafes and restaurants around SLC, she loves to personalize flavors, colors and themes for each customer.
  • Chanda McConnell, Vidas Wax Works. Chanda’s unique blend of all-natural beeswax, additive-free soy wax, and phthalate-free fragrance oils come from her determination to create candles and wax melts out of better ingredients

Each Friday, Al features a punk rock farmer during his #UrbanFarmReport. This week: Molly Dockter of Pomona Produce, a small-scale, earth-conscious, customer-centric market farm operation based on multiple plots of land and one indoor grow space in the Salt Lake Valley.

  • Doing a COVID-pivot and due to the growing number of Utahns who want to start growing their own food, Dockter has revived her consultation and design services. Click here to book an appointment now, as your dreams of the next growing season start taking shape.
