Downtown Salt Lake Farmers Market

The Downtown Farmers Market is proud to enter its 28th year as Salt Lake City's most beloved summer tradition for residents and visitors. The Downtown Farmers Market exists to strengthen and support small local farms and businesses as they bring their products directly to the public. Our farmers and producers offer the freshest local fruits and vegetables as well as a wide variety of grass-fed meats, eggs, dairy, honey, and flora, along with the region's best locally made sauces, spreads, baked goods and culinary accouterments.

This is the last Summer Market of the season.  Stay tuned for the Winter Market beginning in November.

Ronnie Baker Brooks

On the first day recording Times Have Changed – the eleven-track album from Chicago bluesman Ronnie Baker Brooks that brings a sound so big it could topple a Louisiana juke joint – industry-revered album producer and drummer Steve Jordan told Brooks to put his pedal board back in the van. For the first time in his professional life, Brooks, the son of Texas and Chicago blues legend Lonnie “Guitar Jr.” Brooks, would plug a Gibson into TKTK amp and rip it straight from there.

Andrew Combs with Selfmyth, Bly Wallentine

Andrew Combs is a singer and songwriter whose work bridges the freedom and
possibility of his visual art with the influence of classic writing and storytelling. On his
new album, Ideal Man, Combs worked with producer/engineer Sam Cohen (Kevin
Morby, Benjamin Booker) to achieve a more raw, direct sound. The collection was
captured live in Cohen’s Brooklyn studio, with compact, muscular arrangements fueled
by taut, elastic grooves, and also featuring Combs’ longtime collaborators, drummer
Dom Billet and guitarist/keyboardist/bassist Jerry Bernhardt. While Combs may be best
known as a singer/songwriter in the classic 1970s Laurel Canyon sense of the term, he
proves the true versatility of his work here, often setting his acoustic aside in favor of
atmospheric synthesizers and distorted electric guitars. The songwriting for Ideal Man
was partly inspired by Combs’ recent fascination with painting. Combs started painting
when his wife was pregnant (They welcomed a daughter in 2017). “It really changed the
way that I write songs,” he reflects. “When I paint, I might start with a very abstract idea
or maybe even just a feeling, but from there I’ll paint and scrape and paint and erase and
keep on painting until something starts to take shape. I just let nature play out.”

White Right: Meeting the Enemy

The Utah Film Center presents: 

In this Emmy-winning documentary, acclaimed Muslim filmmaker Deeyah Khan meets U.S. neo-Nazis and white nationalists including Richard Spencer face to face and attends the now-infamous Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville as she seeks to understand the personal and political motivations behind the resurgence of far-right extremism in the U.S.

Speaking with fascists, racists and proponents of alt-right ideologies, Deeyah attempts to discover new possibilities for connection and solutions. As she tries to see beyond the headlines to the human beings, her own prejudices are challenged and her tolerance tested. When she finds herself in the middle of America’s biggest and most violent far right rally in recent years, Deeyah’s safety is jeopardized. Can she find it within herself to try and befriend the fascists she meets?

With a U.S. president propagating anti-Muslim propaganda, the far-right gaining ground in German elections, hate crime rising in the UK, and divisive populist rhetoric infecting political and public discourse across western democracies, White Right: Meeting the Enemy asks why. The film is an urgent, resonant and personal look at race wars in America.

Shovels & Rope

As the Brontë sister wrote, “The ties that bind us to life are tougher than you imagine.” Shovels & Rope, the musical duo of Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst, embody that bond. Married for a decade, their covenant extends to blood and beyond: as parents, bandmates, and creative collaborators who can now add the pursuits of festival curators, film subjects, and children’s book authors to that mighty list. Having released four studio albums and two collaborative projects (Busted Jukebox, Vol. 1 & 2) since 2008, Trent and Hearst have built their reputation on skill, sweat, and, yes, blood. Now, with the tough and elegant new record By Blood, as well as their High Water Festival in their hometown of Charleston, South Carolina, “Shovels & Rope: The Movie”, and the picture book “C’mon Utah!”, Shovels & Rope are primed for their biggest year yet.
