The most commonly-asked question this time of year is “how much longer will the Farmers’ Market be open”. Good news! The Saturday market is open and offering abundant fresh vegetables until the end of October! The Wednesday market runs through the end of September. Here’s what we have planned for you between now and then…
9/29/28 FALL FEST: Scarecrow-making, pumpkin painting, and fun fall games.
10/13/18 CUSTOMER APPRECIATION: Free homemade soups, breads and pastries.
10/27/18 HARVEST FESTIVAL: The Saturday market moves downtown for the final market of the season. Trick-or-treating, pumpkin-painting, and a dog costume contest!

Last week for Power of Produce (PoP) Club for the season!
This Saturday is the PoP Club’s final day for the season! It has been a wonderful summer working with children and our local farmers. Rain or shine, it has been fantastic being a part of our local food system community. We hope that we have given our families opportunities and connections with the local farmers and the vital role they play in North Idaho.
On that note, our final PoP Club activity is making a, “Thank a Farmer” button. The children will design, color and deliver a button for one of the market’s farmers. We will also be taste testing some delicious melons.
Since it is our last day at the market, we are no longer signing up new PoP Club members. We finished the season with over 500 children! This is the last week kids can use their two dollar tokens for produce at the market.
We are very hopeful that we can continue being a part of such an important and long-standing community. If you have benefitted from the Inland Northwest Food Network’s Pop Club, we ask that you thoughtfully consider donating to our organization. https://inwfoodnetwork.org/
