This Week’s Top Picks for our Saturday Market

Umoja Na Uhuru World Farm

Capitol City Market Day copyrightThe Somalia word “umoja na uhuru” translates into English as “Unity and Freedom.”  The proud farm owner, Abdi Haji, is a former refugee from Somalia.  He began farming at a young age while living at a refugee camp in Kenya to teach children about where food comes from. Besides selling his produce at Market, Abdi also has CSA shares (Community Supported Agriculture).  Abdi uses organic practices when he farms.  You can find Abdi every Saturday through the middle of October on the east block near the intersection of 8th and Idaho.

High Desert Soap Co

Sells both dry floral arrangements (where they forage and dry local plant species) and specialty handcrafted soaps and other body care products.  Find Jack and Vicky on the west side of Idaho Street near the Vandals Store.

Market Ambassador
