Welcome to Saturday evenings in Kanab. This literally was how we spent last Saturday, and hope to spend the rest of the Saturday evenings this summer.Kanab’s Outdoor Farmers Market has taken on several forms over the last few years but I think this new move to the park is a winner! With live music every Market night, the park is a magical place to be.Even though we are early in the growing season, there were unique and interesting booths to discover.We had a great visit with Kato who has worked at the Glen Canyon Dam for 20 years. As he looks forward to retirement he is building his own Hot Sauce Brand. One made from Prickly Pear cactus!Carol, the curator of the Maynard Dixon Museum has produced a beautiful photo book of Native Americans taken by the John Wesley Powell expedition in the 1870’s.Paul and Liz are on an organic journey to bring all the natural goodness mother earth has to offer, as they distill their own essential oil for soaps and hydrosols. All from local desert plants like Pinion Pine, Chaparral, Juniper berry, and Sagebrush.Marty does amazing photography of the local landscape. The Wave and White Pockets never looked so good.
Pam’s Jellies and Jams also makes homemade treats that cater to Keto and gluten-free.
Even though the market is the main event, We enjoyed just sitting down to enjoy the music and watch the kids play!The vendors will come and go, change and rotate throughout the season, but I’m sure there will always be something at Kanabs Outdoor Market to tickle your fancy, and your taste buds!
5-8pm – Jacob Hamblin Park, Kanab Utah
