South Jordan residents got some help getting into the Holiday spirit when Daybreak hosted its first Winter Market event.
Held at the Daybreak Community Center on December 8 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the event was in full festive mode with talented artists and musicians, spectacular chefs and craft makers and Santa himself. All of them coming together to help celebrate the Holiday season.
Aimee Myers, recreation manager for Live Daybreak said they started the first Farmer’s Market over the summer. They decided to do a Winter Market because they love to support local businesses and wanted to build a sense of community for the residents.
“What better way than to host a market with all of these vendors?” Myers said. “A lot of them are Daybreak residents, which makes it super awesome.”
Vendors had specially made foods such as Empanadas and Syrian food, and vendors brought homemade products like yoga mats and specially made jewelry.
“Our goal is just to bring people together,” said Myers. “It’s so fun and once people come from the community everyone is waving to vendors that they know, they are just supporting each other, which is what we really, really wanted.”
Sarah Andrews said this was an opportunity to showcase vendors from around the community so neighbors can shop local this holiday season with unique and handmade items that is sure to entice any shopper.
As Daybreak continues to grow, community events like these are meant to bring everyone together more often. Daybreak officials hope to host the event every year going forward.
