GRANGEVILLE Spring is in the air and Grangeville Farmers’ Market has been busy.
“We are happy to announce a partnership with the Grangeville High School Chapter of FFA and Ms. Mosman’s botany class,” said market volunteer Lynette Mullis.
Saturday, May 19, the market will host the “Plant Start and Seed Trade, Barter and Sell.” This will be at Pioneer Park from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., unless sold out earlier. Bring plant starts and leftover seeds as well as gardening knowledge to share.
“The GHS botany students will be bringing their hanging flower baskets that have been lovingly nurtured this semester, and they are beautiful,” Mullis said.”
All proceeds will go back into the agricultural sciences program.
“We will also have plant starts from the North Idaho Correctional Institution for sale with those profits going to the Grangeville Farmers’ Market Grub Club - our children’s program, to help with our public awareness campaign,” she added.
Call or text Caity Johnson at 208-451-0109 or call Lynette Mullis at 208-926-0080 to arrange for pickup of an abundance of produce (vegetables, fruits, plants, nuts, seeds) throughout the summer. These will be brought to the market and sold.
“This is a great way to avoid waste and help out locals who want the items,” Mullis said.
The Grangeville Farmers’ Market begins June 16 and runs through Sept. 29. It will also participate on Thursday evenings with the Summer Concert series, beginning July 12, from 5-8 p.m.
The market is actively seeking both vendors and shoppers. Check in with our new web page: Grangeville Farmers’ Market for updates as to what will be available at the market, as well as on Facebook.
