Tis the season for pop up shops — here are a trio:

  • Mixed Greens has commandeered the former DL Evans Bank branch at 9th and Idaho and packed it full of Christmas gift ideas.  Cards, art, clothing and nick-nacks spill throughout the bank branch. They even have cool Idaho stamped Christmas wrap.
  • The Green Being Makers Market will open in Vista Village on December 1 through the holiday season. The store will be open each day and feature more than 25 local arts and crafts makers. “We will also have special holiday programming throughout the month and offer free gift wrapping hosted by Sage International School of Boise HS students in the weekends,” market organizer Melissa Nodzu told BoiseDev.
  • The Boise Farmers Market (the smaller parking lot market downtown) has found an indoor space – the old American Linen Supply Co. building at 14th & Grove. Open Saturdays only 9am-2pm

Also, as a side note – the primary downtown Boise market – the Capital City Public Market – remains in its holiday format each Saturday through Christmas. Vendors will brave the… whatever weather… from 10am-2pm through December 17
