Happy Tater Day Idaho! The national day to celebrate potatoes takes place every year on March 31st and has been celebrated since 1843.

According to National Today, "Traders would come and exchange goods, particularly potato slips that allowed them to buy and grow the plant. This is the oldest trade convention ever known and celebrated. The versatility potatoes lend means that they are great for both salty and sweet cuisines, either elevating the taste of a dish or complimenting the accompanying flavors. This tubular vegetable also holds the credit of solving food shortages, both in the old ages and the new."

Potatoes and Idaho go hand in hand. Check out stuff about potatoes you probably didn't know.
