Monarch Market & Beer Garden

The Monarch Market and Beer Garden, every Saturday, is a cool, pet-friendly escape with shade, misters and ice-cold local brews — just east of the farmers market — making this little market a lovely spot to land on a care-free afternoon. This week, local musicians Mark Dee and The Ivie League will perform on the patio from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. And the indoor market inside the Atrium, featuring hand-selected vendors, will have authentic East Coast-style Cherlys Bagels, along with Salt Lake Syrups, Plant Kandy, Alexa Florals and more. There’s always something new to experience at the “party on the patio” every Saturday.

Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; The Monarch, 455 25th St.; free; themonarchogden.com/gourmet-market.

Pints For Pups

Bring your camera-ready pup this Saturday — Ogden River Brewing is bringing the Ogden community of animal lovers together for Pints For Pups, a dog adoption and fundraising event. A $25 ticket includes event access, lunch, raffle entry and a portrait with your pup on the ORB patio. A new brew on tap, Magnificent Golden Mutt, was specially crafted by head brewer Pat Winslow for the event using several different grains from storage to create the “mutt” ale. All proceeds from ticket sales and $1 for every pint of Magnificent Golden Mutt will go to the Ogden City Department of Animal Services and Weber County Animal Services in hopes of raising $10,000 for the organizations.

Saturday, 1-4 p.m.; Ogden River Brewing, 358 Park Boulevard; $25; eventbrite.com/e/pints-for-pups-by-ogden-river-brewing-tickets-160871760767.

Ogden Bizarre Market

Now with a new beer garden and the Rail City Troopers Music Concerts, Ogden Bizarre Market is the “Sunday Funday” place to be with family and friends. Indie Ogden started the eclectic market during the pandemic to help our community “market family.” Now, every Sunday, The Monarch is filled with local artists, crafters, up-cyclers, vintage resellers, artisans, nonprofits and service providers. Each week, it grows with connections, good energy and “all around Sunday morning magic.” This Sunday, shop from 40-plus vendors, eat, drink and stay tuned for the next concert from Rail City Productions.
