Shop Locally! August Business Spotlight- Freis Fruit Market
Frei’s Fruit Market has been a special part of Santa Clara’s local economy for more than 60 years. Landon and Wanda Frei opened the fruit stand all those years ago and it is still family owned and operated by Vicki Lasswell and Bryce Frei. It is one of the few fruit stands still operating weekly in the state of Utah. If you are new to Santa Clara and have not visited Frei’s Fruit Market yet, it is must do. Once you visit the market you will want to come back often. The market is located at 2895 Santa Clara Drive and is open Monday— Saturday from 9:00 am—6:00 pm, including holidays until the first week of November. Come and enjoy farm fresh Green River melons, Colorado corn, peaches, tomatoes, homemade jams, salsas, local honey and much more! As fall approaches there will be a wide variety of apples, squash, gourds and pumpkins too. To learn more about the market you can visit them on Facebook and Yelp. Please see their flyer enclosed with the newsletter.
We hope you will visit Frei’s Fruit Market and their next door business, Uncle and Aunties, as well as all of the wonderful businesses that can be found right here at home in Santa Clara which offer a great variety of goods and services. Take time to scout out these businesses if you are new in town and or rediscover them if you are not so new to the city. These businesses are working hard for us and depend on our support to help them thrive and grow. Shopping and spending locally also generates local sales tax revenue which helps support functions of the city that effect and benefit us all.
Local Business Highlights
The post flood years have been a tremendous experience for us at Dutchman’s & Cravings. Who knew, that with the help of our fabulous, service minded community the store would not only be up and running again but it would be better than ever. People from all over the country now stop by our place in search of the original pink sugar cookie they have heard so much about. They leave the store with dozens of frozen cookies hoping they will make the long journey home. This little pink cookie has been on TV, newspapers and written about in multiple blogs and publications. Our fantastic bakers take great pride in making all of our yummy cookies.
We haven’t forgotten why 29 years later this little business of ours is still around. We are so grateful to have some of the best and most loyal customers we could ever imagine. You have been with us through thick and thin and for this we say THANK YOU. For those of you who are new to the area we hope you will stop by and grab a bite to eat at our café and for dessert try the delicious cookies that have put our little store on the map.
