The Downtown Farmers Market wraps up its 27th season this Saturday but the annual event is going out with some delicious results!
Beginning at 9 a.m., Tsunami Restaurant & Sushi Bar will present a check to Urban Food Connections of Utah in the amount of $3,000.
The donation is the result of a partnership featuring Tsunami’s Downtown Farmers Market roll made with Anaheim peppers, shallots, heirloom tomatoes and bell peppers purchased from Downtown Farmers Market vendors throughout the month of September.
The roll was featured at all four Tsunami locations (Sugar House, Union Heights, South Jordan and Traverse Mountain).
“We are very happy with the support that our Farmers Market partnership received from the community,” says Judy Cullen, Marketing Director for Tsunami. “The roll that Executive Chef Drew Kawaguchi created was amazing, and we had to scramble to keep up with the demand –which is a great problem to have!”
“It was really fun to work with Tsunami on this collaboration and we are looking forward to continuing our partnership in the future,” said Alison Einerson, Farmers Market Director. “Plus, the sushi rolling class for kids that we held at the market was a huge success – we may have to look at adding a class for adults next year as well!”
The check ceremony will be followed by the 10th annual Howl-O-Ween Pet Costume Contest at 11 a.m. In addition, children who participated in the Intermountain LDS Hospital Market Kids Club program this past summer will be given prizes and there will be pumpkin decorating for kids of all ages on the east lawn of the park from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
