September 2017 marks the eleventh annual Idaho Preferred® Month as proclaimed by Governor C. L. “Butch” Otter. Idaho Preferred® Month was established in 2007 to celebrate the height of harvest season and the bounty of local food and beverage products available in September. This is the month when the most fresh, local produce is available at farmers’ markets, retail stores, on restaurant menus and in school cafeterias.
We will be traveling through the state on our Retail Road Show this month! We kicked off Idaho Preferred Month in McCall Idaho at their new Albertson’s store. We will be ending our road show in Rexburg at Broulims. At each location we will be hosting events to increase awareness of the quality and diversity of Idaho-grown products and allow people to sample local produce picked at peak of flavor, talk about why buying local matters and even introduce some of our local farmers!
