A day in the life of buying Idaho might look like this: cook eggs fresh from a Canyon County farm with ground sausage from Meridian Meat and Sausage on Alpicella bread, catch a quick green chili wrap from upstart FitWrapz, and by dinnertime, enjoy eats from a local restaurant, sipping a splendid ale from one of the valley's many brewing companies. Ahhh.
Sunday, April 15, Buy Idaho—the group focused on promoting Idaho-based businesses—will open the Linen Building to the public for the chance to score Gem State products. From 10 a.m.-3 p.m., visitors can peruse and purchase from booths featuring 20 local purveyors. Loads of parking and free entrance means a one-stop shop for gift ideas and other treats. Featuring members like Art Hale Photography, Dorothy Tobin and Andra Jade jewelry and vintners like Bitner Vineyards, the state now exports much more than brown tubers.
