Locally made food products you can buy in Northern Utah

Utah’s home not just to a variety of farms and farmers markets, but lots of entrepreneurs making unique and delectable products. There are hundreds of unique food businesses, from candy makers to popcorn glazers to jelly mashers to cider brewers.

When browsing the aisles of grocery markets or the shelves of stores, Wayne Bradshaw with the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food said it’s important to pay attention to a food product’s source.

“If we can keep a dollar in the state of Utah, it circulates in the economy longer,” he said. “For every dollar you spend on a local product, 60 percent stays in the local economy.”

Only 40 percent of that dollar stays in Utah when buying products from out of state.  

Bradshaw’s working to help Utahns easily identify foods produced in the state. More than 500 farmers and food producers have applied to be part of the “Utah’s Own” directory, which includes branding for the food’s packaging so Utah products are easy to spot. 

If local shoppers pay attention to their food’s sources and shift just 10 percent of their shopping budget to local products, that can keep $1.3 billion in the state each year, Bradshaw said.

We’ve compiled a list of nearly 100 food products made in the state and easy to purchase in Northern Utah. The map shows where in the state they’re produced. Clicking on each dot reveals the company name, their product and where to buy it.
