Salt Lake County has operated the Wheeler Sunday Market since 2018. Wheeler Historic Farm opens market vendor applications to the general public and vendors are vetted by the Farmer’s Market Committee made up of a mix of County and Utah State University staff. The Market is a community favorite drawing crowds on Sundays June – October. The last Sunday of the month features a Children’s Market where young entrepreneurs can sell their handmade or homegrown products.

Great little farmers market. It’s not nearly as big as the downtown market, which isn’t necessarily bad, as it feels more intimate and easier to get through. There’s a decent selection of vendors and food trucks. We usually will walk around the farm afterwards, my son loves to see the animals after going through the market.
What a beautiful place! Love the Sunday Farmers market in the late Summer.You can get breakfast, or brunch and coffee. Not to mention all the amazing fresh farm produce and other eclectic vendors. BUT there is so so much more! From the historic farm, barn and animals, with all the activities associated there, there are beautiful ground with huge trees and ponds, walking and jogging trails. There are vegetable gardens and beautiful carved wooden sculptures from trees. Playgrounds, picnic area, tons of grass, pet friendly. Just a wonderful place to spend some time!
Acres of recreation, wagon rides, historic tractors, huge play structure, animals galore, and the best Farmer’s market this side of the valley. I can’t say enough about how great this facility is. My family and I have been coming here for years. We love this historic farm. The tour of the farmhouse is definitely worth checking out.

Wheeler Historic Farm
Salt Lake County Parks
Wheeler Historic Farm is a very unique venue purchased by Salt Lake County in 1969. It is the only historic site operated by the County. The Junior League worked with the County to preserve the Farm for the centennial in 1976. The same year it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. County funds, grant monies and support from the Wheeler Farm Friends a 501(c) 3 nonprofit group keeps the farm up and running. The site is about 75 acres in size. A number of the structures on the site are historic: Granary, Farm House, Garage, Milk House. The Activity Barn (1990), Ice House (1979), Dairy Barn (1981) and Summer House (1983) are reconstructions. The first full restoration of the Farm House took place in 1979; the house had been vacant for a number of years while the farm lands were leased. The Wheeler’s owned the property from 1887 to 1943 when the Sterling Furniture Company purchased the land and transformed it into the “Sterling Golden Guernsey Cattle Farm”. It was sold to the county in 1969. The acreage includes a swift moving stream (Walker Ditch-Little Cottonwood Creek) that feeds irrigation ditches on the property and supplies water to two ice ponds. Currently, Wheeler Historic Farm is a working farm and museum with a generous amount of open space, picnic facilities and a playground for public enjoyment. The Lawns/Pavilion, Activity Barn, Ice House and Party House are rented for private and public events providing a source of earned revenue.
