The Riverwalk is beautiful this time of year. The leaves are glorious against the river and blue sky and this year we have been very fortunate to actually have a Fall. Take a few minutes this Saturday morning to come enjoy one of the most beautiful shopping venues in town. #lovingfall #downtownidahofalls
As market comes to a close for the 2020 season we will take a few weeks off to enjoy the holidays and then it will be time to gear up again. Do you have a great idea or suggestion for the market? We think that positive suggestions are worth considering and we really would like to serve the community in the best way possible. Many ideas and changes take a lot of planning and consideration by our board of directors and possibly the city of Idaho Falls Parks and Recreation so now is the time to share.
Please share at firstname.lastname@example.org put "Suggestion Box" in the subject line. Thanks
