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.
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.
