Annual LaVell Edwards Stadium Farmers Market opens Aug. 23 at 3 p.m.

The beginning of fall semester at BYU means school, homework, books — and the LaVell Edwards Stadium Farmers Market. 

The 2012 Farmers Market will run from 3 to 7 p.m. or dusk (whichever comes first) in the south stadium parking lot.  The market will be held every Thursday, Aug. 23 to Oct. 25, except Aug. 30 due to the football game, so it will be moved to Friday, Aug. 31. 

Only the freshest produce is sold along with baked goods, arts and crafts.  The market is for BYU students, faculty and staff, as well as the Utah County community.  There will be plenty of free parking available in the adjoining lots of the stadium.  

Area resident John Lepinski enjoys going to the market nearly every week with his family, and they look forward to it every year.

“My whole family loves the LaVell Edwards Stadium Farmers Market because it’s the most convenient time and place to buy locally grown produce for our meals and home canning projects,” Lepinski said.

Half of the booths offer food sponsored by local growers, with a limited number of baked goods and craft booths. BYU chef John McDonald will also host a booth with cooking demonstrations and taste testing to show attendees how to best use the fresh food they buy. 

“The BYU chef demos are excellent,” Lepinski said. “We always get a lot of innovative recipes and ideas when we visit.“
