Kootenai County Farmers' Market
WELCOME TO THE MARKET
The Farmer's Market is the place to buy from the grower, find one of a kind arts and crafts, listen to
local music and meet with friends, under the shaded canopy of tall native
pines. Come share a cup of coffee and wander the food court,
find that unique perennial, and take home a beautiful
hanging basket. There is much to be enjoyed at your local Farmers' Market. Chat with the farmer who grows the plants and produce,
have your questions answered and feel good about supporting
your local community.
This will be the twentieth season for
the Kootenai County Farmers' Market. Watch for news about plans for our
Twentieth Anniversary Celebration this year. Yet another event to watch
for is our second annual "Feast with the Farmers" in August. And
of course there will be a return of all the other special events we plan for
throughout the market season, every year. Check out the Calendar
for information on these events.

at reduced rates. We also have special dates where we invite all you
"backyard gardeners" to come out and sell your extra bounty. If
this is something that interests you contact the Market Manager at email@example.com

Come get a feel for what it's like to be a Market Vendor.
If you've been to Market and talked to
many of the vendors, you know that Market is about more than just a wonderful
summer of plants, fresh produce, garden related crafts, delicious baked goods,
fine jewelry, and great music! We are about the treasure of family and
friends, enjoying life, and the environment. We are about buying local,
slow food; and organic, environmentally friendly practices in producing our food
and disposing of our waste. To that end we offer the Resources
page. Here you will find an ever growing offering of information that will
help you find answers to questions about how to grow and buy organically, enjoy
your food and environment more fully, and handle your waste in a way your
children will thank you for in the future.
Thank you for visiting us on the
Web. We hope to "See You At Market"!
