Last day of our summer season

 September 24th is the last day of our weekly summer market. We have had a wonderful time this year especially since we moved to our new location at the Rathdrum Lions Club. Thanks to them we have a wonderful food and coffee vendor. The Rathdrum Lions Club has fully embraced us and all our fun craziness.

Our fall events are Oct 8, Nov 12 and 26 and Dec 17. We have indoor and outdoor vendors lined up all those days and some absolutely amazing vendors. Many of the vendors are only doing one or two days so it's definitely worth your time to come shop and hang out with us for each date.

Oct 22 10-6 and Oct 23 11-5 is our huge two day Family Fall Festival. We have lots of vendors, food trucks, popcorn, two coffee vendors, beer vendors, live music, kids activities and games and more.

We are still accepting applications for our fall events of Oct 8, Nov 12 and 26 and Dec 17. There is a discount if you sign up for all four dates. We have two food vendors every event. The Lions Club is serving up such amazing burgers you have just got to try them. And their breakfast sandwiches are bringing people in just to have second breakfast. They are serving espresso based drinks that I look forward to every week. 

We sadly only have two more Saturdays left of our summer weekly market so we strongly encourage you to come get your shopping on. Our market has gotten busier every week and we are honored we have picked up a steady and loyal customer base and we are very grateful to you all. 

Our Family Fall Festival is Oct 22 10-6 and Oct 23 11-5. We have room for more vendors as we are using the ball fields there. We have at least 6 food trucks, popcorn, two coffee vendors, beer vendors, we are hoping the wine slushy truck signs up, live music, games for kids and more. We are going all in on this and look forward to seeing you there. We have lots of parking available. This is a fundraiser for the Rathdrum Lions Club and we are donating 50% of our vendor fees to them. They are a wonderful organization and we are truly blessed to able to work with them.

Courtesy photo By DEVIN WEEKS Staff Writer | August 17, 2022 1:06 AM The Rathdrum Craft and Farmers Market is celebrating two milestones. The weekly market just received its nonprofit status. It also recently moved from the Rathdrum Community Center to the Rathdrum Lions Clubhouse at 16114 N. Meyer Road, where it is already partnering with the benevolent organization to do more good in the community. “We love it there, oh my word,” Rathdrum Craft and Farmers Market founder and President Sandra Cook said Tuesday. "Our firm belief is to be a community-focused market. We like to raise money for people in need. The Lions Club does so much for the community, it’s just perfect." The Rathdrum Craft and Farmers Market opens at 9 a.m. each Saturday through Sept. 24. The new nonprofit pays a rental fee, but donates 25% of its vendor fees to the Lions Club. During the market's two-day Family Fall Festival Oct. 22 and 23, it will donate 50% of its vendor fees to the Lions Club. "We love to help the community and look forward to what new opportunities arise with this new chapter," Cook said. Info: rathdrumcraftandfarmersmarket.blogspot.com
