Sundance Harvest Market

Families enjoy face painting at the Sundance Harvest Market in 2014.

The morning air is a bit crisper, the leaves on Timp and in the canyons are changing, and for many, it’s harvest time.

The Sundance Mountain Resort is celebrating the return of fall with its annual Sundance Harvest Market Sept. 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. In its 19th year, the Harvest Market features a select group of more than 30 local artists and craftsmen selling their handmade jewelry, pottery, wooden canoes, soaps, baby shoes, and works of art and photography. New this year will be sellers of hand-crafted ties and wallets, letterpress and foil-stamped greeting cards, and handmade wooden shelving.

The day will also be filled with plenty of food, live music, and activities for families, including a chance to see live birds of prey and the Sundance avalanche dogs. Also new to the Market, is the addition of a Fly Fishing Festival where fishing fans can learn fly tying, talk with fly fishing outfitters, and enjoy fish artwork and more.

“The Harvest Market is a celebration of not only the fall season and the beauty that surrounds the mountain during this time, but also a celebration of the rich cultural heritage of the region,” Annie Cutler, Sundance marketing manager.

Whereas many farmers markets have been going strong over the summer, and are still continuing into the fall, Sundance’s Harvest Market is for one day only.

"The Sundance Harvest Market is truly unique to other local markets throughout the season. Our focus and integration of art, nature and commerce, topped with the majestic Mt. Timpanogos and vibrant autumn colors is truly breathtaking and an experience you won't find anywhere else, "Cutler said.
