Programs

Senior Produce Program

The Caldwell Farmers Market Senior Produce Program is an initiative designed to empower and nourish our local seniors while fostering community engagement. Supported by generous donors and managed by the Caldwell Health Coalition, this program offers eligible seniors aged 60 and above an opportunity to receive $8 per household to spend at the market.

We invite seniors in our community to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to support your health and well-being while enjoying the vibrant atmosphere of the Caldwell Farmers Market. Together, let’s cultivate a healthier, more resilient community for generations to come.

 

SNAP EBT Matching

One of the unique aspects of the Caldwell County Farmers Market is that it offers a Double Up Bucks program, which matches SNAP/EBT benefits up to $10 per market day. This helps low-income families access fresh, healthy foods.

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as Food Stamps, helps low-income families buy the food they need in order to stay healthy. Eligible SNAP recipients receive an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card, which is used like a debit card at participating grocery stores and farmers markets.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

We are in the business of sharing the process of wine with our customers.  We would love our customers to grow with our brand as our young winemaker grows in his own craft. The winery will be transparent in an attempt to remove a barrier that seems to alienate any customers who may feel intimidated by wine. 

Our winery will exist to make quality, affordable wines, with extra emphasis on the brand of the winery. The brand values that our most important and associated with our winery are:

Venture - verb: dare to do something or go somewhere that may be dangerous.

Revel - verb: enjoy one's self in a lively and noisy way.

Share - verb: use, occupy, or enjoy with others.

Cliff Metcalf has worked in the produce industry his whole life. His dad sold produce locally when he was growing up, and he started his own business in 1993 with an old pick-up and a few half-bushel baskets, working out of a Sears parking lot in downtown Caldwell. Fast-forward to 1997, when Cliff decided to open his own brick-and-mortar grocery store in downtown Caldwell on Blaine Street – Cliff’s Country Market.

The vintage vibe is alive and well at Lakeview Fruit in Caldwell, as it should be. Once a gas station in the 1930s and 40s, a local fruit grower bought it in the 70s and built the fruit stand, which he ran until his death in the 1990s. Three years ago local natives Tom Baxter and Chad Henggeler bought the property and did a complete remodel, including changing parking flow, adding coolers and enclosing the open sides. “We grow almost all the fruit we sell,” says co-owner Baxter. “We have 125 acres of peaches – stone fruits grow really well in the area because of the heat, they get really sugary.”
Oakes Brothers Marketplace is located on Indian Creek Plaza and Main Street in downtown Caldwell, Idaho.

McIntyre Farms was established in 1909, it began with row crops and raising animals. This included a small number of dairy cows and a local supply of watermelons. Now in 2009, owners Ben and Brad started bringing more cows to the farm in order to help build up the soil fertility in a way that didn’t use a ton of artificial fertilizers or pesticides. As time passed McIntyre Farms has grown the number of cows, hogs, chickens and turkeys on land. All of these animals play a vital row in farm rotation. The hens are a great way to naturally clean and sanitize the land by cleaning up flies and building up the soil’s health. The owners rotate their crops which consist of various grasses, while also educating and selling crop seeds to the public. Currently, McIntyre Farms is run by the 3rd and 4th generation farmers Loren and brothers Ben and Brad. While Ben’s wife, Maria, helps on the farm while managing the farm’s marketing and administration. Jill, who is married to Brad helps clean the eggs for packaging and fulfilling orders. Kathy is the family matriarch and motivator who tries to fill in when possible. As you can tell this close knit family really works together to keep things running smoothly and after years of farming they can only expect for more years to come in Caldwell.
