At 9 a.m. ET a special SaltAir Farmer’s Market will be held at City Commons Park with the usual fresh produce along with vendors selling unique Christmas gifts. The market will continue until 4 p.m.

The third annual Junior Service League Chili Cookoff will be held at 3 p.m. ET during the Farmer’s Market at City Commons Park.

The Chili Cookoff is the major fundraiser for the JSL each year and helps fund their outreach to the needy through programs to provide backpacks and school supplies to 100 children and a shopping trip to Sears for school clothes for more than 50 students.

The JSL also sponsors the annual Community Easter Egg Hunt.
