Cedar Mountain Perennials was established in 2009 on 20 acres just outside of Athol, Idaho. The nursery is located halfway between Coeur d’Alene and Sandpoint. We specialize in growing native plants for Inland Northwest Gardens.
We feature plants native to the region as well as the broader western region, but our focus is on providing plants that will flourish here in North Idaho. We feature perennial forbs, grasses, shrubs and trees. CMP is licensed by the State of Idaho and are members of the Idaho Native Plant Society and the Kinnikinnick Native Plant Society.
Cedar Mountain Perennials is a family owned and operated by Bob and Jill Wilson. Bob has degrees in botany, horticulture, and entomology. He is a certified Nursery Professional as well as plant diagnostician. He has worked as a plant propagator, nursery owner, and extension educator.
Jill has degrees in forestry and forest entomology. She spent 20 years working as a forest entomologist and supervisory forest health professional before joining Bob in establishing CMP. In addition to growing plants we also provide a number of other services including contract growing, site visits and landscaping advice, plant identification, pest and disease diagnosis and training.
Clare’s Garden Herbal Soap was founded in 2002. We have been market members for 8 seasons and Marie also serves on KCFM Board of Directors. Our soap is amazing — it’s made with well water from our farm, pure essential oils, and herbs grown in our garden. My daughter Erin works with me at times and hubby, Don is my best worker. We live on a farm south of Spokane with 5 horses, 5 chickens, one dog and one cat. I oil paint, cook and love the grand kids. My biggest family is the market!
At the Kootenai County Farmers Market, we find pleasure in helping people with their gardening needs.
After all, gardening is a fine art and often learning to get it right is a process of trial and error. That’s why we offer bold and beautiful perennials that not only survive but actually thrive in our North Idaho weather!
We offer a variety of stunning tango lilies, deer resistant perennials, shade loving plants, spectacular succulent arrangements, and much more!
Juaquetta has been selling her hand spun yarns at the Kootenai County Farmers’ Markets since 2006. The wool and alpaca she uses are sourced from small, local farms. She does all the processing herself — from washing the wool and dyeing, to spinning it into one-of-a-kind rustic yarns.
She also creates knit and crochet patterns for her yarns. In her booth you will find a rainbow of unique yarn, as well as hats, scarves, and shawls — all handmade by Juaquetta.
She learned to spin yarn in 1992 while living in Minnesota, and her BS degree in Home Economics from Iowa State University, gives a good foundation.
Her workshop is located on the Washington-Idaho state line, and looks out over the north Idaho mountains. As she spins, she watches the sky over the mountains — from sunrise to sunset, cloudy and clear skies, the view is always amazing. Inspiration comes from life. Every colorway of her yarn has a story, stop by her market booth and she will share a few with you!
