University of Idaho College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. The University of Idaho College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) brings unique agricultural science activities for children ages 5 to 11. Saturdays in June, July, and August features the Summer of Science where CALS faculty experts and students introduce participants to topics like entomology, animal science, plant science, nutrition, food science, and more. Children can collect different items at each event to build their own science kit. Participants receive a passport on their first visit, and those who attend at least five events are entered into a drawing for prizes. During May, September and October, CALS will offer additional programs about research, teaching and extension activities.

The Moscow Farmers Market loves all furry companions. For health and safety reasons, we ask that non-ADA service animals limit their visit to the Market and must utilize the pup-friendly paths on the sidewalks adjacent to Main Street and Fifth Street.

The Moscow Farmers Market is a nicotine free event. Please plan your visit accordingly.
