In spite of, not because of the threat of rain, the Boise Farmer’s Market opened today in the parking lot at 11th Street and Grove Street. Many more vendors were there than I expected. Food, wine, beef, buffalo, lamb, eggs, vegetables, fresh herbs and art items were some of the products represented. (To see a complete list of vendors Click Here) It was good to see all of the vendors. After the opening bell sounded, at 9 am sharp, the crowds descended on the market and people were generally happy to see the fresh produce and Idaho products.
Parking is available on site starting at $2.00 for 2 hours, or on street parking, where there is no metered parking charge on Saturday, Sunday and Holidays in Boise. I saw many people walking and pushing strollers heading to the market when I left. Look at the photos that I took this morning of some of the shop keepers and their products. Maybe I’ll see you there next week. Hope so! Cheers and enjoy the photos. Left-Click to see the photos enlarged. Please Vote above.
It looks like a good start to a great idea. Thanks to all of the vendors who are participating and a huge Thank-You to the folks who stepped up to organize this market. I salute you! Well done.
