Friday Night Photos: 2008 Downtown Alliance Farmer's Market in Salt Lake City

I'm wanting to improve my photography and friends who are good photographers advise me to take lots of photos, so I've been trying to take my camera with me everywhere. Sometimes the photos are things I think my blog readers might be interested in, so I thought it might be fun to start posting them once in a while. This first batch of pictures is from the Salt Lake City Farmer's Market, held Saturday mornings at Pioneer Park from 8:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M.






A cute young vendor who proudly showed off her dad's cheese.

Crumb Brother's Bakery, where there was a big line for cinnamon rolls.

The friend I went with always likes the figs from Liberty Heights Fresh.

Really great options for gardeners who haven't planted their herbs yet.

This farmer selling Tatsoi turned out to be
the father of a former student of mine!

Really wonderful looking peas, but I don't remember
the name of the farm.

  2. Oh how I miss living in downtown SLC! In 1995 we lived in a charming old apartment building at 470S 1300E with our 1 year old. I LOVED walking the streets for hours. Checking out the beautiful neighborhoods, walking downtown, to Smith's and Trolley Square. Pushing the baby in the stroller, the baby weight just melted off...

    BTW, the artichoke fritatta was loved by all the other night. Thanks!

  6. Foodierachel, it is such a nice market. I don't go much later in the summer when I have my own garden stuff, but I do love it.

    Sonya, how nice that I brought back memories for you. I shopped at that Smiths for years before they improved the one on 2100 South. And glad to hear you liked the frittata.

    Cookiecrumb, thanks! Actually I take photos of people a LOT at family events, but usually I just post them on our family blog. I have a lot to learn about photography, but taking pictures of kids is one of my favorite things to do!

    Arundathi, thanks. She was so cute!

    Jo, I did buy the tatsoi and had fun cooking it.

    Grace, thanks.

  9. Great photos, Kalyn! You're becoming a great photographer. Don't worry so much about improving, as long as you're having fun, the photos will reflect that and you will continue to improve without effort. I really hope you keep sharing these types of photos, they're so full of life!

  10. Nicole, thanks! That is the plan, to do it most Fridays. I want to do it partly to remind me to take pictures for fun, if that makes any sense!

  12. We all can improve our photography skills, but I think you do a pretty good job already. And you certainly got my mouth watering thinking about those figs! Kalyn, on WHB, I've sent you multiple emails about my entry - I'm concerned you haven't received them since I haven't heard back from you.

  13. Hi Paz, thanks.

    Laurie, I didn't get the e-mail, but will go collect your link right now so I don't miss it.

  14. Great photos and what a nice market! You are very lucky to have something that good so close by.

  15. Thanks Kalyn. FYI, I've sent you emails from my hotmail account and also from my netscape account (I don't use outlook). The first email I sent about my whb entry was on last Monday (to help you figure out how long you haven't been getting emails).

  16. Laurie, it's very odd because I'm getting lots of e-mail, but obviously not all of it. Anyway, glad I did get yours.

  19. Those are really wonderful photos Kalyn. Really wonderful of the little girl!! We are so lucky to have digital cameras. I think my pictures improved some just because I started see what I'd done soon after I did it.
