The Downtown Farmers Market opens this weekend at Pioneer Park in Salt Lake City and celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.

The push to promote local products made in Utah is expanding into rural areas. Tooele County hosts its first ever Utah’s Own Summit on Friday to help small food-oriented companies expand their business, add jobs, and improve rural Utah’s economy.

Will Pitkin taught at Utah State University for 40 years, and after his retirement, grew a garden that inspired many more people.  He passed away on Sunday, July 21, 2013 at the age of 77.  KUER originally aired this story in July, 2011 but we chose to broadcast it again in his memory.
