While I assume they wouldn't be as big as Boise's, are the farmers markets in Meridian and Nampa ever worth traveling to instead on my Saturday mornings? What might I get at the others that I couldn't get at Boise's?

The outdoor market in boise is more than just a market its an experience as well. you can find all kinds of things from produce to art.. and it is in the heart of the city so you can window shop and stroll into the many coffee shops and restaurants for brunch.
I don't know whats in meridian and nampa, but they certainly won't have that kind of an experience... besides meridian and nampa are only 20 minutes away and the drive is definetely worth it...

Don't forget the Eagle Saturday Market. While Eagle has produce and food, it really stresses art. It makes for an interesting Saturday morning. Plus Boise now has a monthly indoor market in the Linen District. It's on the 3rd Sunday of the month. Very cool area that is starting to get a foothold.

Having brunch and cruising the downtown market is one of the greatest things to do around here...I remember the first time I went to the market it was just around memorial day weekend and a cold front "slipped in" with 20 mph winds and low 40s! I FROOOOOZE my *** off....but it was that one time!

You have got to love 8th street. I live in the North End and I think that downtown boise alone is an experience. Though, lately there hasn't been that many people walking the streets and the coffee shops are a bit empty, but I'm sure it will change once we get over this rain and cloudy sky.

But, I've honestly never been to a market..and I live here! And now that I have had my confession of such lack of experience, I will have to go.

Torrie,

That link doesn't work for me... We'll be arriving in Boise in about a month. Is there a website where we can see the sort of things that will happening in Boise during our visit?

EDIT: Sorry, didn't notice the date was 2008 instead of 2009! Sorry...

Do you know of a website that would have info on "What's happening in Boise" in May/June?

Cheers,

Mac

Hey Mac,

Yes, those links with Idaho Statesman only stay on for so long and then they're gone. This link might offer some good insight.
