PROVO — From quail eggs to caskets, local vendors at area farmers markets seem to provide a bit of everything for Utah County residents.
The Porter family homesteads a farm in Antimony, Garfield County, where they produce a variety of products including quail and duck eggs, berries, rabbits, poultry and recently, caskets.
Porter Family Farms is one of many vendors to sell products at the Provo Farmers Market each Saturday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., 500 W. Center, through Oct. 29. The Provo market is one of many Utah County markets available to families during the warm summer months.
