The mission Boise Farmers Market is to support small family farmers, ranchers and producers. In an effort to fulfill our mission BFM believes educational program are necessary. Market programs and special events are vehicles are facilitating BFM’s educational goals. If BFM is to continue to grow to be a viable source of income for our small farmers, ranchers and producers it is critical to educate consumers on the value of supporting local and regional agriculture. BFM programs and events are evaluated annually in terms of cost and benefits, deleting and adding programs where appropriate. BFM program activities and events are funded through sponsorship and in kind donations. Additionally volunteers give countless hours of their time to help insure the success of these programs and events.
