It's Your Business: Win a ride in the dogmobile for the Idaho County Fair

Enter to be selected as an assistant for the Dog Bark Park's parade entry.

Come support your Grangeville Farmers’ Market Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Pioneer Park. This week’s spotlight vendor is “WOW! Fresh Fruit” owned and operated by Hermilo Angeles. Angeles is one of the market’s newest produce vendors. He lives in Kamiah, but brings certified organic fruit and vegetables from the Okanogan Valley, Wash., to share. He will also carry local produce, such as garlic, when available. He has been in business on and off for 10 years. Produce that he has available changes each week. Cherries are about finished, but look for apricots, peaches, watermelon, cantaloupe, beets, carrots and much more! He accepts special orders. Angeles has the large white truck at the park during market hours.

Aug. 4-10 is 2019 National Farmers Market Week! Come support your local market!

It had been 20-plus years since we had been to Dixie Days. We think our daughter, Avery, was about 5 when we last went and now she’s 26! Valor and I drove up Saturday (it’s a long ways) and it was a beautiful drive. We also met some really nice people (and picked huckleberries on the way home – great year; get out there!) I hope you will read about our new friend “Waldy” in this week’s paper!
