Locals tend to love the Boise Co-op, an area favorite since 1973. But the low-slung market in Boise's North End is much more than a grocery store. During the lunch hour, a well-stocked deli counter serves up fresh sandwiches, salads, soups and more. At night, the outdoor seating area has a way of attracting local color. The market's healthy supply of meats, cheeses, fruits and veggies make for a Boise mainstay. 888 W. Fort St., Boise, 208-472-4500, boise.coop.
