National Farmers’ Market Week
Farmers’ Markets are as old as civilization. They are what we should be doing in life: enjoying the outdoors, buying fresh foods, and getting to know the vendors. The Lemhi County Farmers’ Market is continuing this tradition as this week is National Farmers’ Market Week.
Visitors and locals alike have a great time at the Farmers’ Market. We enjoy the smell of freshly picked produce and anticipate great flavor. The Farmers’ Market gives us the opportunity of knowing where our food comes from, but more importantly, how it was grown. When we look at life itself, good health is everything and the vendors want to bring that healthy living to the Farmers’ Market for our community.
“Now is the time to drag out that box of jars, put on your apron and get ready to put up a winter’s worth of delicious pickles, dilly beans, tomato sauce, salsa, and anything else your heart desires! Summer harvest is here folks and judging by the market displays, there is no shortage of beautiful, fresh picked and tasty vegetables to fill your bellies this week at the Farmer’s Market. Swift River Farm will have mountains of green, yellow and purple beans, not to mention a bounty of cucumbers, summer squash, heirloom tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, and maybe…just maybe, the season’s first taste of watermelon. What better way to spend a Saturday morning than getting to know your local farmers and try a little taste of summer while it lasts…. See you there!” Booth 17
Westwind Farm will bring to the Market garlic, huckleberries, new potatoes (red and fingerlings) and plenty of fresh eggs. Booth 25
Feel yourself relax as you mill through the vendor booths of pastries, breads, fresh eggs, jams and jellies. Local artisans share their creative talents as well with custom handmade jewelry (which makes for a wonderful gift), paintings and furniture. Be sure to bring in your knives and tools for sharpening at Mind Your Fingers Sharpening. And set up a photo session with PhotographyByJesse. Check in with Salmon River Chiropractor for a free spinal checkup.
