Urban Flea Market

Local food trucks Fry Me To The Moon and Thai-licious Mobile Cuisine will be serving favorites throughout the day, along with coffee, cold beverages, and snacks. Special guest DJ Bad Brad Wheeler from KUAA RADIO will be spinning Flea Market Rock all day.

They invite you to support the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Northern Utah by donating your gently used clean towels and sheets at the Urban Flea Market information table.

Admission: $2 for adults. Children under 12 free. Parking is free in the North lot.

Annual Clay Arts Sale

“Black Friday” shopping doesn’t have to mean crowded malls with generic gifts made far, far away. Here in Salt Lake City, the better answer for Thanksgiving weekend shopping is the 20th Annual Clay Arts Utah Holiday Sale.
