Farmers Market season has arrived in Boise

With the sun out and the warmer temperatures looking like they are here to stay for a while, the farmer's markets are also kicking off. 

Boise Farmers Market

This market is agriculture-focused featuring locally grown and produced products. You can expect seasonal local produce and herbs, locally raised meats and garden plants a little later in the season. 

There are three different ways to shop, you can walk through the market, place your order online and do a drive-through pick up, or place your order online and have it delivered to your door.
