Winter Market
As the weather gets colder, the absence of the Downtown Farmers Market starts to sting a little. Lucky for us, the Downtown Winter Market has opened its doors, giving admirers of local food and crafts something to enjoy during the colder months. Many Farmers Market mainstays are present, including several seasonal vendors who only come out when the nights get longer. This year's market hosts more than 70 vendors, craftspeople and otherwise talented members of the community, and promises to be a great place to pick up a perfect holiday gift for someone you love—even if that person happens to be yourself. The Downtown Winter Market takes place every Saturday through April 20, at the Rio Grande Depot (300 S. Rio Grande St.) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Creamery
Stopping off in Beaver for some cheese curds has always been a must during any road trip to Southern Utah and beyond. Now, the Dairy Farmers of America (DFA) have partnered with the Utah Governor's Office of Economic Development to take Beaver's cheese distribution to a new level. It's called The Creamery (165 S. 500 West, Beaver), and it's been designed to celebrate the dairy farmers who have been a part of Beaver for more than 60 years. Visitors can snag their favorite local cheeses and stick around for a bite at The Creamery Kitchen, which offers breakfast and lunch dishes that incorporate as much local cheese as possible—think pizzas and grilled sandwiches. If you're a fan of fresh dairy and happen to be traveling to or through Beaver, consider giving this place a look.

Shirokuma Turns Two
One of Utah's premier purveyors of rolled snow cream and bubble waffles is celebrating its second birthday this week. Those who have yet to visit Shirokuma (2843 S. 5600 West, Ste. 120) couldn't pick a better time to get something cold, sweet and exotic. In addition to some of their signature snow cream flavors like matcha, taro and horchata, attendees can expect all the birthday trimmings—cake, balloons and even a bit of face painting. Shirokuma is such a strange and delightful little place, and anyone who has had the opportunity to partake of their strange, delightful confections will be glad to see it bring the snow cream for years to come. The birthday party takes place on Saturday, Dec. 1, from 1 to 3 p.m.

Quote of the Week: "You have to be a romantic to invest yourself, your money and your time in cheese."

—Anthony Bourdain
