If you're in Hyde Park this weekend, you'll notice something new at 13th and Brumback streets.
Farm and Garden Produce is open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., every day through the end of October.
Here's a sample of what they're selling:
- Homemade By Dorothy
- Wagner's Idaho mustard
- Zeppole Baking Co. bread
- H & H Farms tomatoes and cucumbers
- Cloverleaf Creamery milk
- Chard, arugula and other produce from Global Gardens
- Flower bouquets made by Cindy Clegg (sold weekends and Mondays)
Bonnie and husband Stephen Harris opened the stand May 25. A few photos:
A preview of what's for sale:
The owners plan to have a 100-percent locally sourced (and organic when possible) inventory soon. They'll have eggs bought through Idaho's Bounty and herbs from Purple Sage Farms soon, said Bonnie. They're also selling Idaho-made honey.
This is the couple's first retail venture. Bonnie Harris grew up on a farm in the Magic Valley, and Stephen is an electrician and union organizer. They used personal funds and a small line of credit to open the business.
"We will be buying directly from farmers as much as we can," Bonnie said.
