This holiday season, give the gift of good food while supporting local farmers and food artisans.

Looking for a special gift for the food lover on your list? We scouted out seven oh-so-sweet options from local food producers and merchants. Choosing to buy local makes a difference for our neighbors, our community and our region! 

1. Surprise your favorite healthy eater with a gift card to Squash Blossom Farm! Gift cards have no expiration date and are redeemable at the Ketchum farmers market (Tuesdays, June to October) and Squash Blossom Farm Spring Plant Sales, or put toward a 2020 CSA Membership!

2. Stop by Cafe Della in Hailey to pick up a box of holiday cookies, a bag of housemade granola or a gift card that can be enjoyed throughout the year.

3. Treat a friend, co-worker or your child's teacher to a bag of Julie LaFleur's new locally made Red Barn Granola, available at Atkinsons' Market in Ketchum.

4. Head over to Rasberrys in Ketchum for their handcrafted cinnamon rolls, a signature spice blend, or an apron.

5. Introduce a friend to Kraay's Market & Garden home delivery with a gift certificate, available online.

6. Make a tax-deductible gift to The Hunger Coalition on behalf of a loved one or friend.

7. Give a sponsorship to the Wood River Valley's first Locally Grown Guide, a free printed booklet designed to connect consumers to farms, ranches, CSAs, farmers markets, retail outlets, restaurants, artisan food producers, local food events, and food-related community resources. Sponsors will receive special acknowledgement inside the guide. Email Stacy at for details!
