Buy Idaho's staff recently had a chance to sit down with Denise Dixon, Executive Director of IFMA, in anticipation of kicking off the summer Market season. She brought an issue to light that many of us don't, but should, concern ourselves with. Farming is obviously a massive industry in Idaho that affects us all on a daily basis. The farmers markets are an integral part of how many folks get their groceries each week. This helps local small farmers and our community stay in touch.
But did you know roughly only a third of our markets in Idaho accept EBT services? Let's put more dollars in the hands of our farmers and more fresh produce in the bellies of all Idahoans!
Here is a message from Denise about what we can do to help:
"At this point we have 45 farmers markets in the state of Idaho and we are growing. I am working with three new markets this month. As we grow it is important that we provide fresh produce to all of our citizens, but especially to our most vulnerable population, those that are EBT recipients. We only have 15 markets that are presently set up to provide EBT services. When you go to your local farmers market, ask if they accept EBT, if they don;t encourage them to do so. This also provides an additional income for our farmers. Our farmers are one of our most valuable resources and they deserve to make a living wage. Spread the work and help us grow. "
"Whatever your situation, we can help you gain access to information and connections this month.
Learn about various funding options and how to prepare for an investor or lender by attending Zions Bank BRC’s Inside Secrets to Funding Your Business on May 14."

In our work to support Idaho’s grape growers and wine makers, we build awareness and sales of Idaho wines throughout the state. We depend on member participation to ensure our efforts and events thrive. Interest in Savor Idaho North 2019 has been too low to create a successful event. Because of this, the Idaho Wine Commission has agreed to cancel Savor Idaho North. Reaching consumers throughout the state is important to us, which is why we will still participate in events such as The Festival at Sandpoint and From the Ashes Idaho.
Spring is finally here, which means we are getting much closer to celebrating Idaho Wine Month!
Savor Idaho tickets are currently sold out, but check out our event calendar to find Mother's Day and other wine-filled events.

Springing Into a New Vintage of Merlot At Huston Vineyards
Spring Release at Huston VineyardsThe March wind reminds us that Spring has arrived! It's time to break out of our winter doldrums and experience something new! In conjunction with a new event along the Sunnyslope Wine Trail, Huston Vineyards is celebrating our first annual Spring Release Weekend. Join us as we release our 2016 vintage of Huston Merlot. This varietal was the very first Snake River Valley series wine Huston Vineyards ever released. Gregg & Mary planted this varietal as it grows very well in Idaho and has been a signature at Huston ever since. Our most recent vintage (2015) sold out in 4 months and acquired many accolades along the way including Idaho Wine Competition Gold Medal and Wine Enthusiast Editor's Choice and 90 point wine to name a few. As our 2016 hails from the same vineyards as 2015, we think you will want to try it! Saturday and Sunday March 23-24 at Huston VineyardsJoin us at the Tasting Room as we uncork our 2016 vintage! With just 156 cases this Merlot won't last long. Spring into the tasting room and enjoy our new wine and some Spring specials available this weekend only. An Incredible Varietal for the Snake River ValleyThe Merlot plant embraces the warm sunlight of the Snake River Valley bringing forth rich fruit forward flavors while the cool nights develop structure and tannins in the wine. Our 2016 vintage has aromas of plum and vanilla with structured flavors of blackberry and cedar while being well balanced with a long and silky finish. A delicious wine that delights the palate from the first sip!
April 13th at Huston Vineyards
