International Life in Boise: Imported Groceries, Cultural Events & More in 2022

Last updated February 24, 2022 by Mariah Hebbeln

Boise has become a beautiful melting pot of diverse cultures, cuisine, and events over the last century. Since it’s declaration of statehood, Idaho has been a long time destination for those seeking out new homes and opportunity. With that, settlers have brought the cuisine and celebrations of their homelands. Now 130 years later, we are still lucky enough to have such a diverse range of grocery stores, markets, and events that celebrate the customs and flavors of various cultures.
