On Sunday morning, my cousins, my aunt, and I ventured down to Park City’s Main Street to explore the Park Silly Sunday Market. This market is held weekly from 10:00am to 5:00pm during Summer.
Local crafters, farmers markets, kids activities, food vendors, and musicians all come together for the Park Silly Sunday Market. This year marked the 6th year of this event on Historic Main Street.
A unique feature of the Market is their Zero Waste Initiative. All of their food vendors use recyclable utensils, cups, and plates. They collect these used items in the Zero Waste containers and food waste gets fed to the pigs at Potter’s farm in Coalville. Their successful Zero Waste program from the 2008 season resulted in a total of 7 1/2 bags of actual trash being sent to the landfill.
That’s 60,000 visitors and only 7 1/2 bags of trash!!
There I am.
Historic Main Street has a free Electric Trolley.
The trolley route is electrified through a sub-surface charging system. This type of technology has been implemented in Italy, New Zealand, and South Korea, but this Park City project is the first of its kind in North America.
Melissa and I posing with a life-sized cow statue in the Java Cow Coffee Cafe. This shops had loads of yummy looking edibles, but we wanted a more relaxed sit-down atmosphere, so didn’t stop to eat here.
The gift shop here is filled with all things cow and cow related. There were t-shirts, mugs, hats, pajamas, magnets and fun little gifts.
Lots of silly t-shirts on display.
“Welcome to Java Cow”
We walked up and down main street looking at various menus and food options.
We settled down to have brunch at The Eating Establishment.
This eatery is the longest continuously running restaurant in town. Open since 1972, this restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, and drinks. The Eating Establishment is known as one of the best places in town for breakfast. They are known for their generous portions and laid back atmosphere.
I went for the healthy option:
Egg beaters Santa Fe (An egg white omelette topped with salsa and jalapeño garnish)
After brunch we strolled down Main Street to check out the Sunday Market.
This t-shirt made me think of my dad.
(His nickname is Moose… I miss him!!!)
This city is HIGH up, and the altitude has noticeable effects during the first couple of days.

We waited at the main street bus station for the PINK bus.

Aren’t my cousins beautiful!?
While Sue, Mel and Maxine waited at the bus station, I ran to the top of a nearby hill.
I wanted to get a good picture of the view.
Korean dress – Korean pose!
I stopped to admire the flowers along the way.
I love that the buses and trollies are free in Park City. It’s great!!
Maxine and Sue sat down to relax once we got home. Mel and I went for a walk.
I felt like some sushi for dinner!
What a lucky find!!… 김치 🙂
For those of you that don’t know what this is…
It’s Kimchi! A traditional fermented Korean dish made of vegetables (most often cabbage) with a variety of seasonings. This is Korea’s national dish, and I LOVE IT!!! While Justin and I lived in Korea I ate this daily, so after two years of living there, I often crave it now! Kimchi is also a main ingredient for my two favorite Korean dishes: kimchi stew (김치찌개; kimchi jjigae) and kimchi fried rice (김치볶음밥; kimchi bokkeumbap). (Except Korean BBQ – I love that too!) My mouth is watering just writing this!!!

Although we lived in South Korea for 2 years, we only started this blog when we moved to China to teach there. We went to South Korea for a month before moving to China, so we have done a couple blog posts about it. If you haven’t been following our blog for very long, you can check out some of our Korean adventures here:
I had a great day out with the ladies. I really like Park City!
