World-class skiing? Of course. Endless natural beauty? For sure. Unplugging and unwinding? Definitely. But did you know that Park City’s Montage Deer Valley is also a top-notch destination for some serious wining and dining? With its close relationship with local farmers and purveyors, the resort is a glowing example of farm-to-table deliciousness.
According to the Arizona Farm Bureau, Arizona agriculture is a $10.3-billion industry. The Valley offers numerous farmers’ markets that offer up almost anything you can think of—from farm-fresh fruits and veggies to just-cut flowers and homemade gifts. Instead of rushing to the grocery store, soak up some sun and shop from organic homegrown foodstuffs, while also supporting the local economy and community farmers, at these Valley farmers’ markets.
Snuggling up with a big crochet blanket and a warm cuppa (near a fireplace, if you’re lucky enough to have one)—this is what fall is all about. Autumn is a vibrant season full of good vibes, allspice, nutmeg, and the inviting scent of a fresh brew of coffee drifting through the room on a chilly morning. We chatted with baristas from four local coffee shops around the Valley to get their take on the best autumn-inspired coffee, tea and other drinks. So grab your favorite mug, light some candles and get cozy.
