"Farmers markets continue to be an important part of many communities in Idaho and provide access to locally grown food," says Skylar Jett, ISDA Trade Specialist. "They provide a venue for the community to come together to support Idaho's farmers and producers as well as the local economy".
To help consumers find information about farmers markets in their area, the ISDA, in collaboration with the Idaho Farmers Market Association, releases the annual Idaho Farmers Market Directory. The newest version of the guide is currently available online at https://agri.idaho.gov/main/marketing/domestic-marketing/farmers-markets/. The 2019 guide is also distributed to Idaho Visitor's Centers, local chambers of commerce and all Idaho farmers markets.
Later this summer, Idaho Farmers Market Week will be recognized in conjunction with National Farmers Market Week from August 4 – 10. Farmers markets will host a variety of events throughout the week. More information on Idaho Farmers Market Week will be available in the coming months at www.idahopreferred.com
