Farmers’ Market Vendor Spotlight


The Wood River Farmers’ Market is your go-to place for fresh, local, nutritious and handmade products. Direct purchase from our vendors builds our local economy. Get to know where your food comes from. The produce is fresh picked that day or the day before it comes to you at the markets.  We believe in providing nutritionally complete food that tastes fresh and sweet. Our products provide more value as they last longer than products shipped often thousands of miles before customer purchase.

Because ProjectMarkets are Tuesday in Ketchum on 4th Street and Thursday in Hailey on Main Street next to Sturto’s – both open from 2-6 p.m. through October 13. Come see us!

Because Project

Based in Ketchum, Because Project candles are handcrafted in reclaimed wine bottles using 100 percent regionally sourced beeswax and pure essential oils, and are free of all the bad stuff (synthetics, paraffin, GMO soy). A portion of proceeds from each candle sale benefits local and national causes. We repurpose with a purpose! Because Project will be at the Ketchum Farmers’ Market.

T and M Gardens

T & M GardensT and M Gardens is a family-run business and Tanya and Mike Ovchazenko are the owners, based in Twin Falls. Their son comes to market with Tanya most weeks to help sell, and they have amazing produce, with early-producing carrots, beets, cucumbers, onions and garlic, plus a variety of fruit including cherries, Carnelian cherries, blueberries, strawberries and eggs. The Ovchazenkos are originally from the Ukraine in Eastern Europe. Tanya’s mother and father used to participate in the Hailey market a few years ago until Mike and Tanya took over. Their produce is always super-fresh and delicious – customers are encouraged to try any one of the many samples they offer. Tanya also makes coleslaw, crepes filled with vegetables, beet salad and some other Eastern Europe special dishes.

The Ovchazenkos love gardening and selling at the market. You can find them at both the Hailey and Ketchum markets.
