Shopping local is important, and it's becoming even more important given the current state of our economy — it's essential in order to keep our local economy strong. Local businesses create jobs and contribute to our Boise area cultures etc.

But have you ever been to (or even heard of) this grocery store that was rated Idaho's best independent grocery store? Let's find out!

A recent article from Lovefood features a specific small town grocery store for being ranked the best one in all of Idaho. Any guesses?

Nel’s Bi-Lo Market in Pocatello

Lovefood says...

“A local favorite since 1957, Nel’s Bi-Lo is known for having the best meat around. It also stocks baked goods like cinnamon rolls, fresh fruit and veg, pantry supplies, alcohol, and flower baskets, making it a great alternative to the big supermarkets. It even has Meals in a Box (such as ingredients to make chicken pot pie) for curbside pick-up – perfect to give to self-isolating family members.”

Personally, I’ve never been to a Bi-Lo market, however, I’ve recently been to the Red Top Market in Wilder, Idaho, and that was a really incredible experience. There were so many fresh (and LOCAL) fruits, veggies, dairy products, beef, honey, and more. I went on a “Thirsty Thursday” and there were food trucks and live music etc. It was fun!
