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.
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.
