— Saturday, July 1, the Grangeville Farmers’ Market will kick off the 2017 season, in Pioneer Park on East Main Street in Grangeville. The SyndiCat Bros, Pete Northcutt and Johnnie Henderson, will be playing music. Coffee will be offered free of charge for customers and vendors, volunteers and visitors. The Elk City Wagon Road committee will be using the Market’s free table for non-profits, to advertise the upcoming Wagon Road event, selling raffle tickets to promote and fund their group.

All vendors will be set up by the 9 a.m. start time. The market runs until 1 p.m., every Saturday through September, and will also be open at the same location during the Thursday evening Grangeville Arts’ Music in the park, from 5 to 8 p.m. each week. EBT cards can be used to purchase tokens from the market manager.

The free children’s program, the Grub Club, will run from 10 a.m. to noon. The activity will be a scavenger hunt across the vendors. Each Grub Club member will receive two $1 wooden nickels to spend on produce or edible plants. Future activities will include children’s yoga, decorating plant pokes , an obstacle course and other activities promoting healthy foods and active lifestyles.

Look for the GFM float in the Border Days parade on Sunday, July 2, celebrating the 10th anniversary of the market.

The market offers a half table free of charge, twice a season, for vendors with a small amount of products. Customers are always looking for tomatoes, so if you have extra, consider using the free half table.

To download an application and handbook, visit the Grangeville Idaho Farmers Market Facebook page or call Michelle Perdue at 983 3763 to have an application mailed or answers questions. Non-profits must pre-arrange to use the free table.
