Ketchum Farmer's Market Ripens All Summer
Ketchum, Idaho - ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) - The Ketchum Farmer’s Market is about half way through its season. The popular market takes place in downtown Ketchum every Tuesday from 2PM to 6PM . It kicked off in June and will run into October.
Vendors range from organic produce to gourmet meats, cheeses, wines, and baked goods. You’ll also find booths for artisan crafts and handmade jewelry and clothing items.
Unique to this market in Ketchum; The Pioneer Saloon is mixing margaritas. Pre-made meals my local chefs are also gaining popularity. This is the first year Indian food is on the menu.
“You get all sorts of people. Some people love Indian food and they say it’s what’s been missing from the valley for a long time. And then some people don’t have any idea what is it I’m cooking. So it’s really fun to see who’s going to show up. I’ve been selling out by 4PM, so in two hours. I’ve been selling about 150 containers in two hours, so it goes fast,” said Tona Leiseth, owner of India Supper Star.
The market is now accepting food stamps! Thanks to some very generous local organizations, those eligible can double their money. Spend twenty dollars from your EBT card and get forty dollars, while funds last, to purchase fresh food.
