The Market Chatter
--Keeping it fresh, unique and local. July 10 , 2020
I HEARD IT THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE
The 4th of July is the beginning of summer harvest here in Southeast Idaho. It starts with peas and cherries and then heads into raspberries, summer squash, tomatoes, beans, beets, cucumbers, onions. Oh and don't forget the beautiful cut flowers.
Tomorrow, July 11th, our produce vendors will have:
PEAS TOMATOES RASPBERRIES CHERRIES LETTUCE SPINACH RADISHES ONIONS BEETS CARROTS CUT FLOWERS & MORE......
Vendor Stall Highlights
Susan of Mountain Crafts has been a member of the market for many years. One of her most popular products is the crocheted scrubbies. They sell out fast. But she is will crochet more. Hand crocheted scrubbies, dishcloths, potholders. Sewn gel neck cooler wraps the perfect way to keep cool on those really hot days.
Sergio and Rebecca of Sergio's Delights sell fresh Mexican style corn on the cob, fruits with chile and lime, and tamales. They have been wowing the crowd for many years and when they are not at the market you can catch them at their food trailer across the river.
Idaho Falls Farmers Market is a SNAP/ EBT and Double Up Food Buck friendly market. SNAP stands for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Did you know that you can use your Idaho Quest card (EBT card) at the market. Here is a video about the program. For more information come to the market booth.
This year has a lot of changes. To accommodate social distancing, vendors are spaced out and some are in different locations. Did you know that you can view our market map weekly to see which vendors are attending and where you can find them?
Here is the link http://maps.managemymarket.com/4289 If you scroll over the map it will light up the vendor name or you can click on the vendor name and it will highlight the booth site that they are assigned to.
OR you can stop by the market booth and Junean or Boston would be happy to direct you in the right direction.
