Tony Caputo’s Market & Deli brings back their ‘Locavore Market’ this Saturday. The market initially started in 2008 as a way to offer local consumers access to great local products outside of the farmer’s markets more limited date range. Caputo’s opens up their premises to local food artisans and ranchers, and in doing so, doesn’t charge them a single penny. In an email I received from Matt Caputo, he commented: “This is one way in which we can give back to the Utah food community that has been so great to us”.
The Locavore Market was such a success that it is now available year round. The market appears every Saturday from 10 am to 3 pm. Please note vendors accept cash and check only (Caputo’s themselves take debit and credit cards).
Vendors this week include Lau Family Farms (beef and lamb), Butcher’s Bunches of Logan (jams, preserves), Melanie’s Sweets & Treats (treats include sweet & spicy pretzels, chili chocolate popcorn, salted caramels) and Heritage Valley Poultry (organic free range chickens, turkeys, duck, and rabbit).

Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC. I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have written in myopic detail about the Salt Lake City dining scene for the better part of seventeen years.
I’ve worked extensively with multiple local publications from Visit Salt Lake to Salt Lake Magazine, not least helped to consult on national TV. Pause those credits, yep, that’s me! I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’m largely fueled by a critical obsession with rice, alliteration and the use of big words I don’t understand. What they’re saying about me: “Not inaccurate”, “I thought he was older”, “I don’t share his feelings”.
