Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r By Kjirstin Youngberg

Just because school has started again doesn’t mean it’s time to stop all of the outdoor fun! The Farmer’s Market in Mapleton continues in full swing until September 24. Families love to spend Monday nights letting the kids play on the swings or slides while adults listen to free live music and stroll through the market stalls.

This version of the market was begun two years ago by TJ and Jill Uriona of Alaitasun Farms. They have a Facebook page they keep up to inform everyone of the latest news. https//mapletonfarmersmarket.com/.

The idea of having the market at the same time as the Mapleton Music in the Park Series was started by Jill, and it has proved to be an excellent idea. People who come can listen and shop at the same time, picking up the freshest vegetables, chocolate and other interesting things from the many Mapleton residents who sell there. Kids sell lemonade, handcrafted items and suckers. Adults sell farm fresh produce, live chicks or kitchen towels. Sometimes, residents even have extra puppies to hawk. There is also a dessert truck with sweet desserts to tempt the taste buds.

Music and entertainment this year has included many bands, and featured open mic night on Labor Day, September 3. September 10, featured Morgan Cottom Band, Rock Canyon Poets, and Rober from the Bright Side. On September 17, ROADEE – Aubree Liz Shill will perform, and Local Bluegrass Band will close out the year on September 24.
