SALT LAKE CITY — Fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables. Handmade crafts artfully produced with brightly-colored materials. The beat of various music genres in the background. The buzz of conversation electrifying the air as buyers weave in and out of the lines of booths. All this means one thing: It's farmers market season.
