Just received a phone call from our vendor Paul Werner. This week he will be bringing to the market 400 lb of organic apples: Carroll, Breaky (these were the hot sellers last week), Collott, and a mystery apple.
The great thing about shopping at the Lemhi County Farmers’ Market is everyone has the opportunity to try the many different varieties of vegetables grown right here in the Lemhi Valley. Even for those of us who keep our own gardens, it is always fun to try out our taste buds with something new. For example, garlic on sale at Swiss River Farm.
Canning season is now here and you know what they say about the early bird. This weekend you will have green beans, beets, carrots, corn on the cob, and juicy melons available. The apricots are wonderful and ready to eat. Last weekend delicious apples were introduced to the market by Paul Werner.
Most people living in the Salmon River region are familiar with the astonishing 900-mile migration Idaho-born salmon and steelhead make each year, but may not be aware that monarch butterflies make an equally impressive long-distance migration each spring.
It’s Christmas in August this weekend at the Lemhi County Farmers’ Market. All of the vendors are getting into the spirit as it is never too early to plan ahead of time. Stocking stuffers come to mind with items like handmade antler handle knives and antler toothpick holders found at Rustic Knives.
