Bonners Ferry Farmers Market Harvest Party takes place September 18
By Jillian Chandler
When looking to support those in your community by purchasing local goods made with love, the weekly Bonners Ferry Farmers Market is the place. All summer long, the City Parking Lot has been alive, bustling with local farms, food producers and artisans coming together to share their goods with the community. Each market day, shoppers are treated to nearly 30 vendors with everything from fresh produce, spices and baked goods, to handmade soaps, handspun yarn and more.
Join the Bonners Ferry Farmers Market and its many wonderful vendors for the annual Harvest Party, a celebration of the end of the growing season, taking place this month! Welcome fall in all its glory on Saturday, September 18.
From 8am to 1pm, make a plan to head to Bonners Ferry City Parking Lot, where you'll find a fun atmosphere and all the wonderful vendors with their variety of products and goods. Winter squash and root vegetables will be ripe and ready, perfect for those savory fall recipes. And to top off the market festivities, there will be live music by local talent Greg Ashby.
Mark your calendar for October 2—Customer Appreciation Day and the last day of the summer market. There will be free raffle tickets given out for the chance to win raffle prizes featuring donated goods from the market vendors.
And … there’s more good news, with the Holiday Market just around the corner in perfect time for the holidays! The Holiday Market has been scheduled for November 13 and, this year, the Bonners Ferry Farmers Market will be hosting a Winter Market on December 4, 11 and 18, at Memorial Hall at the Boundary County Fairgrounds.
