What do I have to do to sell baked, prepared, or ready-to-eat food?

  • Foods made primarily for consuption at the market are called "Prepared Foods" and there are lots of rules and regulations about these products. Government fees to sell prepared or ready to eat food may apply. We advise potential vendors consult the Salt Lake County Health Department, Food Protection Division regarding temporary events. More info can be found here:

Where are the International Peace Gardens?

Once I get there, where do I park?

  • Vendors can park in the Vendor Loading Zone on the North side of the market area while they unload their vehicles. Driving is not allowed on the grass. Once unloaded, vendors will move their cars to an ancillary parking area away from the center of the park. Once the market starts, we reserve the best parking for our customers.

Where do I set up?

  • There are no reserved spaces. Vendors must check in at the People's Market booth every week for a space assignment. We will work hard to give you a placement where you prefer. Look for the market manager at the main People's Market booth.
