Boise City Farmers Market LogoGreat news! The all new Boise Farmers Market will be opening this Saturday, April 6 at 11th between Front and Grove in Boise. The market will be open from 9:00am – 1:00pm. In the Idaho Statesman article New Boise Farmer’s Market Finds A Home, “… You’ll find produce grown within 200 miles of Boise and local specialty foods. Each vendor is required to have at least one product that contains one locally grown ingredient. For example, Cucina di Paolo lasagna will be made with local spinach.
The market will open with about 25 vendors – though growers with late-season produce will be coming on board later. The lineup includes Meadowlark Farms, Homestead Natural Foods, Triangle C Ranch, The Jelly Lady, Cucina di Paollo, Rice Family Farms and Malheur Meats.”
Janie Burns, Board President and owner of Meadowlark Farms in Nampa, says that there will be a some artisan products available, but they must reflect the local agriculture. Artisan tempera paints will be produced from local eggs and sweaters and wool products will be spun from local wool.
From the The Boise Farmer’s Market web site, Janie Burns goes on to say that the market “… will focus on local food, cultivating new farmers, incubating new food ideas, and creating a community space to learn about food and sustainability. The vendors who have committed to supporting this market have over 200 years of farmers’ market experience and are dedicated to a vision of authenticity, education, and renewal of our agricultural economy.”
Let’s all try to support this new source for locally grown and fresh produce. Hope to see you there. Below is a map to the Boise Farmer’s Market! Left-Click to see the graphic enlarged. Then, if you want to print a copy: Ctrl+Shift+P.
