The Nampa Farmers Market is located in Historic Downtown Nampa in Lloyd Square Park between Front and 1st Street South and between 13th and 14th Avenue South.
The Nampa Farmers Market was founded in 1989 by John and Afine Relk.
They had a vision. They saw a community market which provided local food and products made by friends and neighbors.
Originally, The Nampa Farm and Garden Market (as it was called then) was held in the parking lot across from what is now the Nampa Library. The first day for the Market was July 15th, 1989. That first year there were only three vendors participating and customers were few. Some would call that first year a bust. But John and Afine had a vision that was indelible. They persevered. The market continued and began to grow.
John Relk (1930 – 2016)
Since the beginning, the market has grown in both customers and vendors. In 1998 the market moved to Downtown Nampa in front of the Nampa Train Depot Museum.
In 2010 the market moved again, to Lloyd Square.
The market has grown to an average of 80 to 110 vendors per week, offering a large variety of produce, foods, crafts, plants and flowers from local vendors.
Each Saturday, rain or shine, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, the Market is a bustling community of farmers, crafters, food vendors, and bakers selling their wares from April 10, 2021 through October 30. All of the produce and locally crafted items come from within a 100 mile radius of Nampa.
Local entertainers provide music and dance to enrich the experience of shopping at the market. Live and local is much better than elevator music!
