It has been a week since the last Farmer’s Market in Hailey.  No more sunny afternoons under the Lava Lake banner and no more plethora of local food right outside the office door.  Everyone has packed up and gone on down the road to their farms.   Fortunately, the Idaho’s Bounty truck is traveling that same road, and it doesn’t stop for the winter.Bounty_truck

For one day a week, Idaho’s Bounty turns the Armory in Hailey into a stockpile of local food.  Every Wednesday farmers, including us here at Lava Lake, descend on the Armory to drop off their goods for delivery to coop members in Ketchum, Hailey, Buhl, Stanley, and Boise.  It’s like Schwann’s with Lava Lake Lamb and MM Heath winter squash, instead of orange creamsicles.  They provide a great service, by allowing members to order fresh, real food from farms all over Idaho, and then offering either delivery or pick-up options for its customers.  They also are hosting a number of events this fall, including tonight’s Octoberfest Potluck. Our area is fortunate to have Idaho’s Bounty and Lava Lake is proud to be a part of their organization.
