Davis Food & Drug New Owners of the Farmer’s Market

Press Release

July 16, 2012

Davis Food & Drug announced its recent acquisition of the 30,000-square-foot0 Farmer’s Market grocery store in LaVerkin, Utah. Davis Food & Drug is a 24 year-old, family owned and operated business with a portfolio of 3 other stores in Vernal, Roosevelt, and West Valley City.

Established in 2000, Farmer's Market is one of the few independently owned grocery stores in Washington County. The store services the local LaVerkin, Hurricane, Toquerville, Virgin, Springdale, communities as well as the tourism and recreational visitors to Zion National Park. In addition to one of the largest selections of organic produce in the county, Farmer’s also carries some locally grown produce, when in season, which makes it a perfect location for those health-conscious consumers. This community friendly hotspot supports local growers and is a full-service supermarket with a deli, bakery, and pharmacy.

Farmer’s Market was previously owned and operated by the Wilson Family until their recent decision to retire. It was important to the Wilsons that the new owners be able to carry on the small town ideals, traditions and legacy that Farmer’s has always prided itself in maintaining and being a part of over the years.

Neil Walter of NAI Utah South, who facilitated the transaction, said, “It is a rare and wonderful instance to be able to work with two like-minded parties who want the best for the community and have a passion for customer service.”
