Stocking Up with Groceries for Your Park City Ski Vacation

Stocking up with groceries for your Park City ski vacation is one way to save some money. The Market at Park City is a great place to shop that is tucked away in a local shopping center near the heart of Park City. The Market supports a variety of local Park City vendors and offers many food options for the vegan, the carnivore, and everyone in between. A few items that you should keep an eye out for are Red Bicycle Breadworks, Auntie Em’s, Daily Rise Coffee, and Deer Valley’s own food products. If you love bread, run, don’t walk to get your own Red Bicycle Bread which is made fresh in store using local ingredients and sells out daily. The incredible smells are free. If you have a sweet tooth, Aunitie Em’s can fix that. Their cookies and pies are made with local wholesome and organic ingredients…yum! If you need a coffee buzz to be stocked in the pantry, get a bag of Daily Rise to get your caffeine fix for the day. This Utah based coffee company has been thriving and you won’t be disappointed with your morning cup o’ joe. Lastly, if you have skied at Deer Valley, you know their chili is world-famous and so are their cookies. They have made it possible to enjoy their favorites in the comforts of your home. For the chili to go you simply add in hot broth or water and let it stew away. What is a better memory maker than making homemade chocolate chip cookies and eating them by the fire after a perfect day skiing. Grab these premade mixes and you will be set for your après ski.
