When you stay at Dover Bay Resort, you have all the comforts of home. This includes fully-equipped kitchens perfect for whipping up delicious meals. While Dish at Dover Bay, our on-site restaurant, is the perfect place for a meal, sometimes all you want is something home-cooked. Add local ingredients to your meal by shopping at the farmers market in Sandpoint.

What to Know about the Annual Market

For over three decades, The Farmers’ Market at Sandpoint has brought together local farmers, craftspeople, food vendors, and artists. The market runs roughly 24 weeks from May to October, rain or shine. 

When the market is in season, you have two chances a week to shop: Wednesdays from 3 to 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Regardless of the day, the market is held at Farmin Park, one block off Oak Street downtown. 

When planning your visit, be sure to check and see if any special events are going on. Listen to local musicians during Music at The Market, or celebrate the end of the season at Harvest Fest. A popular event is Taste of the Market, a roughly once-a-month event that showcases how to use market-sourced produce in seasonal recipes.

What Can You Find

The vendors that set up shop every week offer a wide range of items. Stock up on locally grown sunflower oil, or buy wild rice, perfect for making soup. You can also find a vast array of produce. Take your time browsing the craft vendors because you might stumble upon the perfect keepsake. This includes things like original artwork, handcrafted body care products, or jewelry.
