When I moved to Park City in 1992, there were some fantastic restaurants around, but the town had little to offer except supermarket chains to supply the home cook. Thankfully, that has changed over the years, and we now have a wide range of boutique markets offering provisions from freshly butchered meats and imported olive oils to locally made breads and cheeses, and much more. Here’s where to get the goods.
Jen Rattray worked at Fairweather Natural Foods when it first opened in 1992, and now she owns the healthy food market—still in its original location on Iron Horse Drive. In addition to homeopathic remedies, a wide range of wholesome organic foods, gluten-free and vegan items, an organic juice bar, and an array of vitamins and herbs, Fairweather also offers an eclectic cafe menu with healthy sandwiches, salads, baked goods, bowls, soups, and smoothies.

For baked goods, look no further than Bill White’s Windy Ridge Bakery which, in addition to pies, cakes, cookies, and pastries, also offers prepared foods to take home to your hotel, home, or condo. You’ll love warming up with the spicy Italian sausage or roasted vegetable lasagna after a day on the slopes.

Where’s the meat? It’s at the Chop Shop in Kimball Junction, specializing in whole-animal butchery. But beyond meat, there’s a terrific selection of domestic and imported cheeses, grab-and-go gourmet sandwiches, Detroit-style pizzas, charcuterie, pantry items, olive oils, vinegars, caviar, and even custom blended spices.
