SALT LAKE CITY, Utah(New4Utah) Salt Lake City’s neighborhood business districts are seeing a lot of growth and momentum right now. One of those areas is Central Ninth. Roberta Reichgelt, Local Business and Entrepreneurship Manager, joined Emily Clark, to talk about a special event aimed to help those local businesses. It’s called the Spring Fare at Central ninth.
This Sunday, May 6 from 1-5 p.m., is the first annual Spring Fare at Central Ninth. It’s a vibrant street fair featuring tastes of culinary fare from neighborhood businesses like Blended Table, Blue Copper Coffee, Jade Market, Laziz Kitchen, and Meditrina. In addition, Water Witch and Proper Brewing will join in the celebration.
The first 100 guests to arrive will get a free t-shirt from Local First Utah.
The Central Ninth neighborhood is a highly successful RDA project area. The area features a number of locally owned, independent businesses plus lots of new housing options. It’s nestled within the historic single family homes that are characteristic of the area.
There’s also a TRAX stop at 900 South and 200 West, and the 9 Line Bike lane runs from 9th & 9th, along Harvey Milk Boulevard connecting the Jordan River Parkway and quick access to I-15. This makes the business neighborhood very accessible for residents on both the east and west side
of Salt Lake City and downtown.
Salt Lake City’s vibrancy, culture, and uniqueness is due in large part to these small, pocket, neighborhood business districts. Many of these neighborhoods like Central Ninth have SLC-only, local, independent businesses that fuel our economy. Studies have shown the incredible impact that these small businesses have. Many of them hire local talent, have a very local supply chain, and reinvest their dollars back into the local economy.
The Spring Fare will be held Sunday May 6, from 1-5 p.m. Tickets are $25. You can buy them at: www.24tix.com. Tickets include a specialized passport that will allow guests to taste the locally made, internationally inspired fare in the neighborhood, ranging from fusion small plates, to small batch coffee, to Middle Eastern cuisine.
This event is also a benefit for 90.9 KRCL radio
