Once a week, producer Guy Hand will bring you the news on what’s fresh and interesting at Southern Idaho's farmers’ markets. We’ll also gather timely tips on how to plant your own garden and grow you’re own food.

One week through October The Market & Garden Report will explore Boise’s Capital City Public Market. We’ll talk to vendors about their best, most unique products (often focusing on those mystery vegies that most of us haven’t tried or know how to cook). We’ll get recipes from area chefs, let you know when your favorite berries are in season and alert you to upcoming events at farmers’ markets all around Southern Idaho.

The following week — for those of you who’d like to get your hands dirty — we’ll head out to Peaceful Belly Farms. There Clay and Josie Erskine will let us sneak into their very popular gardening class. They’ll teach us about heirloom tomatoes, compost piles and what to do with all those pesky bugs.
