Millcreek Cacao Roasters have taken their perfected coffee roasting process and applied it to making gourmet chocolate bars right here in Utah. Local roasters Dana and Mark share a passion for making artisan chocolate—a noticeable passion that shines through the direct relationship they have with cacao farmers in Ecuador, from sustainable farming to ensuring the quality of each and every hand-picked bean. The level of craftsmanship that goes into creating each bar of chocolate can be tasted in their unique Orange Peel Cacao Bar or in the savory Himalayan Salt Cacao Bar, and extends to all of their delicious flavored chocolate bars.
Located in central Utah, Real Salt is mining one of the healthiest and best-tasting salts in the world. Real Salt is mined in Redmond, Utah from salt deposits from an ancient sea bed. Where does the name “Real Salt” come from? The salt deposits in the mines have been geologically protected from erosion and modern pollutants, and since Real Salt is never chemically treated, bleached, or kiln dried, the end result is real salt that is sweeter tasting and healthier than table salts and sea salts. Real Salt can be purchased in local grocery stores and is a must-have for the seasoned gourmet’s kitchen.
Local bread company Red Bicycle Breadworks began baking and selling artisan breads in 2007 at the Park Silly Market.

Bread fans can find flavors from Park City Sourdough, to Olive Oil and Sea Salt Stick Bread, and even Chocolate Chipotle Lime at The Market at Park City; all bread is baked fresh daily. Red Bicycle is also featured at several local restaurants and can always be found on Sundays at the Park Silly Market.
