We’re beginning to plow through December, which means Christmas will be here before you know it. If you’re like me, you might’ve been caught frantically shopping last minute on Christmas Eve in the past because finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list is hard. Luckily, Utah is filled with so many artisans and crafters who have worked all year to create perfect and unique gifts for every type of person on your list. Visit one of these incredible fairs or markets this weekend for the best holiday shopping experience of the year.
The Utah Fair Park is hosting its International Market for only the second year ever. From Friday the 8th to Sunday the 10th the fairgrounds will host an incredibly diverse market where vendors from all heritages come to share their crafts and culture with you. You’ll be able to look forward to flavors, goods, services, artworks, and music from across the world. For more information visit https://www.utahstatefair.com/p/international-market.
If the people on your list are fans of locally harvested honey and winter vegetables then you should swing by the Festival City Holiday Market. This Cedar City market is open every Saturday in December from 10am to 2pm. Find homegrown produce, homemade jams and baked goods, and handmade crafts and art pieces that will all make wonderful gifts. More information can be found at http://www.festivalcityfarmersmarket.com/.
Last but not least, for the artsy, extravagant, or aesthetic person on your list, the Utah Art Market will have the perfect gift. Every vendor handmakes their wares so you’re sure to find a one of a kind present, whether you’re looking for art, pottery, stained glass, home decor, or jewelry. This market is being held at the High Point Center in Sandy from now until December 16th and more information can be found at https://www.utahartmarket.com/.
