In the midst of spring, the Rexburg Farmer’s Market comes to South College Avenue in downtown Rexburg on May 11 through Sept. 28 every Friday from 4 to 8 p.m.
The Rexburg Farmer’s Market prepares to bring a wide variety of vendors to the community, from fresh produce to clothing.
The vendor list has been posted on the official Rexburg Farmer’s Market webpage, where the community may find more information on the products sold at the market.
According to their Facebook page, the Rexburg Farmer’s Market has been running since 2009 and is going for their 10th season of serving locals and BYU-Idaho students.
Khaley Chin, a freshman studying civil engineering, said she has been to several farmer’s markets near her home in California and said it is super fun.
“Usually, they have non-GMO products, and it really supports the local businesses and those farmers that haven’t industrialized,” Chin said.
Chin also said farmer’s markets are a way local communities can get fresh produce, and she would be interested in going to the Rexburg Farmer’s Market.
Jenna Warren, a junior majoring in marriage and family studies, said she did not know Rexburg had a farmer’s market but has previously experienced going to farmer’s markets.
“I think it’s really beneficial because it brings in fresh produce, and I feel that is something we struggle with here in Rexburg,” Warren said. “I usually go to Walmart, but they just don’t have the greatest produce, and I feel like farmer’s markets are usually cheaper, and you get good food for less money,” Warren said.
People interested in the event may contact the Rexburg Farmer’s Market representative through the official Facebook page or website.
