If you’re looking for fabulously fun and local Park City events to spend your Hump Day and Sunday Funday, get your fill with the Park City Farmer’s Market on Wednesdays and the Park Silly Sunday Market.

Don’t just shop, but enjoy the chance to interact with the vendors who can tell you about their farms and how they grow their amazing products. You’ll even see chefs from local restaurants shopping for their menus. More than fruits and veggies, you can expect to find locally made breads, salsas, dips, baked sweets, and more.

Hearth & Hill

It seems like it wasn’t too long ago when Main Street was home to the only options for dining out in Park City. Times sure have changed! An abundance of new eateries has opened in recent years in other parts of the Park City area and in nearby communities like Heber City and Midway. These culinary gems are a hit for locals who seek a fun evening or lunch out while avoiding the Main Street crowds. Some offer outdoor seating which is also appealing given Park City’s spectacular summer weather. The best things come in threes, so here are three of our new favorite dining venues off Main Street. They have the added bonus of ample, complimentary parking.

Concert at Deer Valley Resort

We all know summer weather was slow to arrive, but now that it’s here, locals and visitors rejoice for outdoor summer concert season. Hundreds of performers will grace the various outdoor stages set to beautiful scenery around Park City. Many are free while some require ticket purchases. There is one new exception, however: the long-running Park City Institute’s Big Stars Bright Nights Series, which had its home at Deer Valley Resort for many years, is now forced to hold its concerts indoors at the Eccles Theater at Park City high school. Deer Valley will continue to host concerts by known national acts. Other outdoor venues include stages at Park City Mountain and Canyons Village, as well as High Star Ranch in Kamas.

First thing's first - food!

Staging your home prior to listing

As the temperature in Park City heats up this month, so does the real estate buying and selling season. The luxury Park City real estate market is highly competitive and full of discerning buyers, so it’s important to maintain a leading edge by properly staging your home in advance of photographing and listing it. In many regards, a photographer is as good as his subject, and great photos of a tidy home can entice more buyers to visit it. While some buyers have the vision to look beyond the dated antler chandelier and bear sconces, your lime green entry way, and clutter in your home office, why not make it easier for them to appreciate the full potential of your home? From repainting and repairing, there are many things you can do to make your home

Jeremy Ranch home

Spring has sprung! It’s time to dust off old man winter and do some spring cleaning along with some necessary spring maintenance on your home. Winters in Park City tend to be longer and harsher due to our altitude, so when the weather is right, make yourself a checklist to ensure you get them all knocked out and avoid any potential problems. With the selling season upon us, these items are especially important if you are planning on listing your home to sell.

1. Clean gutters and down spouts.
Gutters and down spouts tend to get cluttered with debris from trees and can cause leaks in places you may not even notice. Ensure that there are no loose points along the gutters as well.

2. Examine those roof shingles.

historic home in park city's old town neighborhood

Wow, another report of statistical real estate data showing some impressive numbers. It has continued to be a very busy selling season in the greater Park City area, and we just don't see any signs of a significant slowdown anytime soon. At the end of the first Quarter of 2019, in comparing year over year, we again see a slight decline in unit sales but an increase in price.

The entire Park City MLS, if we include all residential, fractional and commercial properties, saw 2,864 properties sell, compared to 2,686 for the prior 12 months. That is only a difference of 6% and is still a staggering amount of sales activity for this small (but growing) resort community. Even more impressive is the sheer volume of just over $2.5 Billion in closed sales.

snowmobiling near park city utah

It's that time of year again, when the ski resorts in Park City close, but we are still getting amazing snow in the higher elevations. One option to enjoy the powder is to head over for a ski day at Brighton or Snowbird. Brighton typically stays open through the third week of April, while Snowbird will run as long as there is snow - for 2019 they will probably go into June. Driving to either Brighton or Snowbird is less than an hour from Park City and is a real treat since our PC resorts have been closed for a couple weeks.

EASILY RENT SNOWMOBILES AT DANIELS SUMMIT

Another really fun way to enjoy the last few snow storms is to head over to Daniels Summit for a day of snowmobiling. Daniels Summit is only about 35 minutes from Park City, and with
