new Boise Farmers’ Market

The new Boise Farmers’ Market has opened for the season. Opening day was Saturday April 6. Despite it being a rainy cool day, and it being opening day at an unfamiliar location, and it being early in the growing season, lots of folks came to shop. Some of them must have liked what they found and come back the next week because the market was plenty busy on April 13 as well.

These two web links from the Boise Weekly do a nice job of capturing that successful opening day:

You might also enjoy this opening day video clip by Guy Hand which provides a glimpse of some of the growers who are participating and why they are doing so:

As it focuses on locally and sustainably produced food, the Boise Farmers’ Market is smaller than the Capital City Public Market. One reason for this is that our community needs more farmers and ranchers producing such food. The Boise Farmers’ Market would like your help in “growing” more growers! More on that another day.

Especially if you have not already, I hope you will go to the market this Saturday and support our local farmers and ranchers. For those of you who go to market to actually SHOP for FOOD, you may have a pleasant surprise in store. I think you’ll find it easier to park, easier to do your shopping, and easier to get in and out quickly.

Details about the market, hours, parking, etc. are available here: http://theboisefarmersmarket.com
