BOISE, ID — The last neighborhood market in Boise is set to close it's doors Saturday.
The Roosevelt Market in Boise's East End will shut down it's operations after 15 years with it's current owners. The actual building itself originally opened as Roosevelt Market in 1900, and has since gone through several owners. Most recently, the market served as a hangout spot for locals where they can get prepared breakfast and lunch items and other small groceries while having several areas to chat with friends. Co-owner Susan Wilder's son Josh, who has been a long-time manager at the Roosevelt, will be sad to see it go.
"I get a lot of thank you's, bunch of those. you're going to get me. Just the heart of the place has been noticed we're here more than just to serve business and make money and provide a warm place for people to come and get together, meet your neighbors, communicate with people, or learn about each other," said Roosevelt Market Manager Josh Wilder.
The property was purchased about a year ago, but no one we spoke with is completely sure what will happen to the market itself. The Roosevelt, which is located at 311 North Elm ave in Boise, will be open all day Saturday for the last time, so you have one last chance to grab one of their signature breakfast dishes.
