The Boise Farmers Market features locally grown food and crafted products. Not only does the Boise Farmers Market sell a wide assortment of foods and products, it also supports community education concerning the food systems and health issues. The marketplace sponsors groups such as the Sprouts Kids Club where children can learn about food and where it comes from. Children, from ages 5 to12 years old, learn about how to make healthy and nutritious food choices with fun activities such as scavenger hunts and cooking classes. The Boise Farmers market also sponsors farmer mentoring programs and culinary education. The New Farmer Mentoring Program pairs experienced farmers with new farmers, giving the new farmers knowledge and help as they establish themselves in the food supply world. Culinary education programs work to educate children and adults alike on healthy foods that provide the needed nutrition for our bodies.
