Boise Farmers Market – Pick Up, PopUp, a 1 hour special, tomorrow 15 Feb 2020 at the Shoreline location. Limited products. See you there!
It isn’t often that we stop and think where our dinner tables would be without our local farmers! No. Produce and meats do not magically appear on our grocery store shelves. It must be produced and cared for by farmers. And in Boise, we are very lucky and honored to have some fantastic local farmers that bring their wears each week to us for our enjoyment and health. To you – Thank-You! Now to go into withdrawal until April 4, 2020. Here are some of the vendors who provided Robin and I with some awesome products.
I know I have probably missed someone and I apologize for that.
Joe Mamma’s Eatery, (208) 939-3917, 3510 N Eagle Rd, Meridian, ID 83646. “Joe Momma’s is owned and operated by Kathleen Wise and Danette Smith. Danette Smith has over 20 years of experience owning and operating successful restaurants. Danette Smith was owner and operator of 9th Street Sandwiches for 2 years, which she then sold to pursue Moon’s Kitchen Cafe, which she owned and operated for 10 years until selling the restaurant in 2001.” [Website] They have an awesome breakfast menu that will challenge Goldy’s Breakfast Bistro or Manley’s – remember them all of you in Boise?. The dining area is large and spacious. The Waite Staff is good and eager to help, especially our Server, Rachel. Our breakfast plates were quite large and all made fresh. Yes! Fresh crab cakes made from Blue Crab, fresh carnitas from pork and housemade Hollandaise sauce.
A well deserved 5-Star rating mainly for the quality of the food they serve. (The oatmeal that someone ordered was huge!)
Here are some photos from our visit. Enjoy! But first. Robin also had a pancake with her breakfast. It had to be 14″ in diameter! She brought it home. Left-Click any photo to see it enlarged.
I have a new Air Fryer – actually several – recipe posted at Air Fryer Recipes on this blog and permanently listed above under Air Fryer Recipes. There is something that you should know before you try any of these recipes – and we hope you do and leave a comment – we DO try and work on ALL of the recipes in any of these locations and adapt them to our liking! Ideas come from many locations and resources – other food blogs, recipe connections, Food Network, PBS TV Recipe Saturday and many more.
And another note: The Boise Farmers Market (BFM) moves to it’s new location at Shoreline Drive and Americana Blvd on Saturday April 6, 2019! It’s been a long time in the works. Many, if not most of the produce and products sold at the market, work extremely well with the Air Fryer, and Instant Pot, recipes listed on this blog. See you at the Market! And from their email posting –
The Boise Farmers Market opens in TWO short weeks

Wow! What a delightful and exciting wine dinner in Eagle, ID at Bacquet’s Restaurant. Yummy French cuisine! And the wines that paired so well with dinner from 3 Horse Ranch Vineyards. Just look at this menu, the wines and the photos of the food. Great to have a truly French restaurant in the area! (Left-Click any of these photos to see them enlarged. Enjoy!

We did have a good visit to Deja Brew – Laugh A Latte in Meridian on March 23, 2018 at 112 East Idaho Avenue, Meridian, ID 83642. Phone – (208) 957-6442. Hours – Mon: 6:30AM-8:00PM, Tue: 6:30AM-8:00PM, Wed: 6:30AM-8:00PM, Thu: 6:30AM-9:00PM, Fri: 6:30AM-9:00PM, Sat: 6:30AM-9:00PM, Sun: 6:30AM-3:00PM. Good ambiance with plenty of open seating. It can be a little noisy, though; They need to turn the music back somewhat. You must order your food at the counter, but they will generally bring it to your table. They do have a good Breakfast/Lunch Menu with many varieties of coffee and tea. Their Dinner/Wine/Beer Menu, with a good selection of beer and wine. We will return to this bistro in Meridian. It is definitely a 4-Star restaurant/bistro. Here are some photos. Enjoy!
Six weeks and the market moves indoors to the Fulton Street building. But for now – Rum Cake from Dee’s Rum Kãx! And delicious it is! And some really great fruit – Israeli Melon from Rice Family Farms and some fresh Salad Greens from Ohana No-Till Farm. From Chef Jake Sandberg and Crispeats, an awesome Asian Salad. Here is some information about Dee’s Rum Kãx.
