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 and The Utah Review; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with other local publications from Utah Stories through to Salt Lake Magazine and Visit Salt Lake.
I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for more than a decade. I’m largely fueled by Uinta Cutthroat, alliteration and the use of too many big words I don’t understand. I ate all the pies.
