Father’s Day Gift Guide at the Rexburg Farmer’s Market.

Hey ya’ll!

It’s crazy to think it’s almost mid-June! That means Father’s Day is coming quickly (June 16th). Don’t worry if you haven’t planned anything special yet: the Rexburg Farmer’s Market has you covered. With everything from delicious meal options to one-of-a-kind gifts, we’re here to help you celebrate all the great dads in your life!

I didn’t buy you socks, promise!

Let’s be honest, dads are kinda over socks and ties every year. This year, do something as unique and cool as your dad!

Boyle’s Creations makes the best wood engravings. The key chains here are designed and created by the owner of the shop himself. While they may appear small, they are the perfect gift to remind your dad how much you love him every time he pulls out his keys.

Affordable luxury

Stanley Street Soap Co. is an amazing local artisan booth. While everything they do is great, their wet shave kits are the perfect gift. Each kit comes with a custom shave bowl, handmade shave brush, and lush shave soap. This gift will make shaving an experience rather than a chore.

How cute are these cards?

BB Cards has designed the cutest cards to send and share with all the dads in your life. This local business was started just last year as a way for her to share her art with everyone.

Yummmmm

Twila’s Gourmet Fudge is perfect for the dad with a sweet tooth. Always smooth and creamy, this fudge is made from the finest ingredients. The foodie dad in your life is sure to love this.

Daddy Dinner

Dads deserve more than just a great gift. Make him feel extra special by cooking a delicious meal with local ingredients.

Breakfast in the most important meal of the day! Why not try an omelet, hash browns, and some toast. Black Bear Family Farms has beautiful farm fresh eggs that pair perfectly with spinach from Roots and Grow Farm. The hash browns can be made with potatoes found at Food Dudes. Try making toast with the bread found at Great Harvest and topping it off with jam from either Roots and Grow Farm or Black Bear Family Farms.

After breakfast, spoil dad with a gourmet burger for lunch. Crowfoot J Ranch & Meats is having a Father’s Day special of two T-Bone steaks, two rib steaks, and three #’s of ground beef. Try making some gourmet burgers for lunch and topping them off with micro greens from Lucky Seven Farms.

Keep the meals rolling with dinner. As mentioned above, Crowfoot J Ranch & Meats has an amazing special this week. Grill the dad in your life a steak worthy of him. Food Dudes can help you find the perfect potatoes to mash. To finish off this meal, pair everything with a garden fresh salad. Try adding sweet crisp lettuce from Roots and Grown Farms, and kale from Black Bear Family Farms, to a salad mix from Lucky Seven Farms.

No matter how you choose to celebrate the father figures in your life, we hope everyone has an amazing holiday this weekend!

Happy Father’s Day from the Rexburg Farmer’s Market!
