Idaho Falls Farmers' Market: The Perfect Way to Support Local Producers

Celebrate the new summer season by taking a visit to the Idaho Falls Farmers’ Market. It’s fully re-opening Saturday June 6th and then will be open every Saturday until the end of October from 9 am to 1 pm.

Brief History

Besides having incredible local vendors, the Idaho Falls Farmers’ Market is a historical event that has been happening every year since 1988. The Idaho Falls' Farmers Market was originally known as the Growers' Market of Idaho Falls. It bounced around different locations until it settled in the KeyBank parking lot on Broadway. The Growers' Market stayed there for about 20 years. Back in 2017, the market joined with the artisan market and worked with the city to establish a new location along Memorial Drive. Closing Memorial Drive every Saturday morning has allowed the market to grow even larger and incorporate more vendors. The market is the perfect place for buyers who want to be able to talk directly to producers.

The Vendors

The Idaho Falls Farmers’ Market is a fun open-air market where local farmers and artists sell anything from home-baked goods to cozy blankets to handmade artwork. The market is sure to have something that appeals to everyone. Click here to see this year’s full list of vendors. Below are a few of my favorite vendors that I suggest you go check out this summer.

Savory & Sweet

For the Foodies:

Donuts, Cotton Candy, & Drinks!

Sugared Moose Mini Donuts

This is an awesome local family that has created their own donut truck. They make fresh hot donuts and then you choose your toppings. Their toppings include the basics like cinnamon & sugar, to donuts with a more local flair like huckleberry powdered sugar. They actually have a permanent location at 570 E. Anderson, Idaho Falls, so if you can't wait until Saturday to get yourselves some yummy mini donuts check out their Facebook page to see their hours.

Mexican Style Corn-on-the-Cob

Sergio's Delights

Sergio's Delights is a local food truck located at 475 River Parkway, Idaho Falls. They sell mangos, fruit cocktail, and delicious Mexican corn-on-the-cob. While you walk around the farmers' market be sure to stop by and grab some corn. If you haven't tried Mexican corn-on-the-cob yet, Sergio's Delights is the perfect place to try it. Corn-on-the-cob is delicious by itself, but it paired with cotija cheese and chili powder...yum!
