Welcome to 2023 + Wednesdays Have Moved, Market Customers!
The 2023 Kootenai County Farmers Market season has almost arrived! Well, it’s arrived for us and our vendors, as we prepare to serve you all the goodness we’ve been working on. Before we get started, we wanted to let you know about one rather significant change this year.
The Wednesday evening market has moved from Downtown Coeur d’Alene to Main Street in Riverstone here in Coeur d’Alene. This original Kootenai County Farmers Market was established in 1986 as a producer-only market to foster direct interactions between local growers, artisans, and consumers, and we sold downtown at 5th and Sherman for 17 years.
We look forward to continuing to serve you on Wednesday afternoons from 4pm-7pm at our new location! Join us each week, beginning on May 17, and shop with all the wonderful vendors you recognize and know (plus several new vendors!), enjoy familiar food purveyors, and listen to live music here in Riverstone!
Of course, the market will continue to serve the community each Saturday, starting this year on May 13, 9am-1:30pm, at Highway 95 and Prairie. We had new quality farmers accepted into the market this year, which means more craft vendors too! And we’ve expanded the food court to bring you more delicious options to enjoy while you listen to local music artists every summer weekend.
The farmers and artisans of your 38 year old Farmers’ Market would like to thank all of our beloved customers, residents, and visitors alike who have supported us with their steadfast and valued patronage. You have made this move possible, and you voted our Saturday market the Best Farmers Market in North Idaho for 2022 and 2023 and the Wednesday Market Best Market in North Idaho for 2021.
