Kootenai County Farmers Markets - Wednesday evenings & Saturday mornings - thru September and October

Since 1986, the Kootenai County Farmers' Market has been providing the communities of North Idaho with fresh, locally-grown produce. From May through October, our markets specialize in vegetable, flower, and native plants and an ever changing array of local food products--meats, cheeses, bread, honey, and jams--all season long.

So grab a cup of coffee, listen to the live music and peruse the more than 100 producers and artisans who make up our two markets--from cheese to chairs, breads to birdhouses--you'll find it at the market!

WEDNESDAY MARKET

Hours: 4 pm to 7 pm, through September
Sherman Ave. & Fifth St., Downtown Coeur d’Alene

SATURDAY MARKET

Hours: 9 am to 1:30 pm, through October
SE Corner Hwy 95 & Prairie Ave., Hayden

DOGS ARE NOT ALLOWED AT THE SATURDAY MARKET GROUNDS. THIS INCLUDES DOGS BEING CARRIED, IN STROLLERS, BACKPACKS, OR PURSES. THANK YOU

The Kootenai County Farmers’ Market Board of Directors has implemented the following COVID-19 modifications to start off the season:

Our vendors have been asked to follow best practices:

  • To set their booth to allow 6 feet of space between customers and vendors.

  • Discourage group gatherings.

  • Have one vendor handle product; one to handle money.

  • Use surfaces that can be disinfected and sanitized.

  • Wear gloves and masks.

  • No sampling or live animals at the market.

For now, we ask that you think of our Market as an “outdoor” grocery store…get in, shop, get out.
