Finding fun and interesting home decor can be difficult, with many stores selling the same or similar home decorations and furnishings. Utah home builders have designed the perfect home to fit you and your family, so why not fill it with home decorations that will perfectly fit your personality and style. But where do you find it? That’s where local artists and artisans can help. But this type of original craftsmanship is not normally found in large stores. For unique, local home decor you need to look to the art fairs and craft markets.
Downtown Art and Craft Market, Salt Lake City
Located in Pioneer Park, this art and craft market takes place every Saturday from 8 AM till 2 PM right through summer until October 20th. It features local art, handcrafted home decorations, handmade jewelry, local photography and plenty of other arts and crafts that have been designed and made by people from the local community. There are lots of opportunities to buy gifts and be inspired.
If local home decor wasn’t enough to tempt you, the market also runs alongside the Salt Lake City Farmers Market, so you can pick up the freshest local fruits and vegetables, as well as local honey, eggs, meat, and even delicious baked goods.
Utah Art Market, Salt Lake City
This large Art Market runs five times throughout the year, in February, April, October, November and December, at the Sugarhouse Garden Center in Salt Lake City. This October it will be held on the 12th and 13th and it can be a fantastic opportunity to purchase original art from the local area and local artists. There are beautiful home decorations available, including candles, pottery, stained glass and even holiday home decor, so you can find the ideal pieces for your own home.
