The Capital City Public Market is more than just a local foods and fresh produce market. We believe in growing a sustainable local food system and thriving local economy through the exchange of goods, services and information between farmers, specialty food producers, artisans and the public, whether our patrons are locals or out-of-town visitors.

The Market generates millions of dollars for the local economy and helps independent, seasonal micro-businesses grow and develop their client base. We help these local business owners by providing technical help, free weekly advertising, merchandising training and marketing assistance.



What is now The Capital City Public Market started out in 1994 as an open market on 8th Street in downtown Boise. It was founded to mirror the success of other markets throughout the region and at the time, was the only farmers’ market of its kind in Boise or the surrounding area. During its first year, the Market had one employee and about 10 vendors.


In the two decades since, The Capital City Public Market has grown steadily, expanding its footprint and adding vendors each year. The Market now consists of 130+ vendors a day during the peak season, and fills Idaho Street and 8th Street with thousands of shoppers every week.



Nothing beats local foods for freshness and flavor. Purchasing directly from Treasure Valley farmers helps support and strengthen the community, as well as protect our land and conserve fuel.


Restoring the balance of local versus long-distance food is healthy for our communities, our farms, our land and ourselves.
