BOISE, Idaho — It is springtime across Idaho and in a regular year, farmers markets would be popping up in parking lots and parks. With it not being a normal year, farmers, organizers and customers need to limit contact with each other to help cut down on the spread of COVID-19.

This Saturday, the Boise Farmers Market will open for the season at the Shoreline location. Rather than getting out of your car and strolling through the market, people will pick up pre-ordered produce in a drive-thru format.

This weekend's drive-thru slots are already reserved, but to learn more go to the Boise Farmers Market website.

The Capital City Market on 8th Street is not happening yet, but the Nampa Farmers Market is scheduled for the 25th of April and will also have some format changes.
