ONE DOWNTOWN, TWO SATURDAY MARKETS It’s second nature to most of us that there are two large Saturday markets in downtown Boise each spring and summer. But to a visitor or newcomer, having two separate outdoor markets within a few blocks of one another on the same day is a bit of a head-scratcher. That’s reason enough for Staff Writer Lex Nelson to visit with the people who keep both markets thriving. It’s an intriguing look back on the tension that created the split, and the happy present where both markets coexist. Read more on pages 6 and 7. Just prior to their opening night, I sat down with actors Andrew May and Kathleen Pirkl Tague, stars of the play Misery, which will launch Idaho Shakespeare Festival’s 42nd season under the stars. On page 8, Pirkl Tague says her character Annie is “somewhat ridiculous, even though she’s intense, fierce and messed up.” And May confirms that “fibulas and tibias will be shattered” during the performance. The City of Boise has done a pretty swell job in its recycling efforts (approximately 97 percent of residents participate) and its curbside composting program (nearly 90 percent of households take part). It appears that the next big thing to tackle is the first “r” in the reduce/reuse/recycle formula—reducing the use of things that can’t be recycled. Lex Nelson tells us about the still-in-the works Roots Zero Waste Market, which will sell bulk produce to its customers without singleuse plastics. Read more on page 18. Also this week, I review two new, very different films: How to Talk to Girls at Parties and RBG. One co-stars Nicole Kidman and is a trippy dive into the London punk scene of the late 1970s. The other is about U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. I’ll leave it to you to figure out which is which on page 19. Finally, a mea culpa. In our May 16 issue of Boise Weekly, we misidentified our #boiseweeklypic on page 26 with the wrong Instagram user. It should have read csknox_. Our apologies.

market’s indoor winter location on Front Street keeps them coming year-round. There are also some structural differences between the two markets. Warchol emphasised that while BFM is a nonprofit, CCPM is a business league of 127 entrepreneurs. “I would say we’re truly a public market, which can encompass farms, artists, jewelers, specialty foods, you name it … [Whereas at BFM] they pride themselves as a Boise farmers market,” Warchol said. Ellis echoed that sentiment. “We are the farmers market, and this is where people shop for fresh local food. The other market, the public market, offers a lot of things
that we aren’t able to offer, and that’s great. It’s the best thing for this city to have happened,” she said. Though the markets have respective identities, a few artisans have found homes at BFM, and a handful of farmers stuck with CCPM. One of them is Waterwheel Gardens, which sells fresh produce, as well as dried fruit and preserves that Williams said go over well with tourists. There are even a few vendors with booths at each venue. Both markets are exclusively local, and while some shoppers are loyalists to one or the other, siding with favorite vendors, many Boiseans stop by both groups of tents on a given Saturday.
“When we split the markets we actually doubled the number of people coming back downtown to shop because now they had the option: They could wander and look at everything and shop at their convenience [at CCPM] or if they wanted to just come in and shop they could do that and go [at BFM]. So I think it turned out better than anyone thought it might,” said Ellis. When Boise Weekly posed the question of market preference on social media, Facebook user Paige McMahon spoke up for the neutral faction. “I usually visit [BFM] first and then walk around [CCPM] afterwards,” she wrote. “The farmer’s market is where I’ll pick up produce (and my favorite tamales!), but I enjoy the
Capital City market because of the live music and bustling city energy! Lots of yummy street food there too!” Though it’s hard to forget what the markets once were, organizers on both sides said they’re looking forward rather than backward, and are optimistic about the years ahead. “It’s kind of like what the City of Boise is going through right now,” said Williams. “There’s a lot of people who are like, ‘Oh, we wish the city was still the small town that we remember growing up,’ and it’s like, ‘Yes, I get the nostalgia feeling, but you can’t go back, you know? As the city grows, you have to make the best out of the growth.’”
Boise Farmers Market, located at the corner of 10th and Grove streets, focuses on produce, and more than half of its vendors are farmers. L E X N E L SON

Folk devotees are likely already well-versed in LaMontagne’s soft, easy vocals and delicate acoustic guitar harmonies from his 2010 album, God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise (RCA Records), which scored a Grammy for Best Folk Album. LaMontagne will ride high in Boise following the May 18 release of his seventh record, Part of the Light (RCA Records, 2018). Don’t miss his debut on the diamond. —Lex Nelson With Neko Case. 7 p.m., $45-$65. Memorial Stadium, 5600 Glenwood St., 208-322-5000, summerﬁeldconcerts.com. BOISEweekly | MAY 23–29, 2018 | 17
BEER GUZZLER HEMP, HEMP HOORAY All of the brews this week have a hemp connection: One is named for a sweet sativa strain, one is brewed with hemp seed and the third gives a nod to both a stoner movie and a cannabis variety of the same name. As an aside, industrial hemp is making a comeback, the 2014 Farm bill having lifted the U.S. government’s previous ban on hemp cultivation. DOUBLE MOUNTAIN SWEET JANE IPA, $4.79-$5.79 The ﬂuffy, three-ﬁnger head slowly slips away from this copper-tinged brew. Subtle aromas are marked by soft, leafy hops backed by a sweet mix of tropical fruit, cherry and a touch of toffee. This is my style of IPA: The hops are ever-present, but not too aggressive. They compliment the mild caramel malt and subtle citrus ﬂavors. NEW BELGIUM THE HEMPEROR HPA, $2.49-$2.99 This one is brewed with hemp, more speciﬁcally the hearts of hemp seeds that have been sterilized to meet the tangle of regulatory laws. It pours a dark gold with a decent head that leaves a glass-clinging lace. The ﬁrst whiff? Heady weed that mellows out as you sip. The ﬂavors are an easy-drinking mix of smooth malt, soft hops and light lemon. I bet you can’t drink just one. STONE TANGERINE EXPRESS IPA, $1.99-$2.49 The massive eggshell head that tops this hazy orange-tinged brew persists nicely. As you might expect from a Stone IPA, the nose is dominated by citrusy hops, with a touch of orange coming through. Unlike some fruit-enhanced ales, here the tangerine ﬂavors lurk beneath the bitter hop proﬁle. It’s a great choice for IPA lovers looking for something a little different. —David Kirkpatrick 18 | MAY 23–29, 2018 | BOISEweekly
Lea Rainey (right) plans to sell her homemade honey at Roots Zero Waste Market along with bulk items, fresh produce, beauty supplies, eggs and dairy essentials.
A NEW, OLD-WORLD WAY TO SHOP
Local micro-grocery Roots Zero Waste Market to sell bulk produce, eliminate single-use plastics LE X NEL SON When the news came down the pipeline that the City of Boise’s new Hefty EnergyBag recycling program won’t accept plastic clamshell containers or water bottles, it reaffirmed Boise native Lea Rainey’s resolved in her new business venture: opening a micro-grocery and cafe—dubbed Roots Zero Waste Market—to sell bulk produce to customers without single-use plastics. “I think that everyone is acutely aware of our plastic problem, not just in the United States but globally,” said Rainey. “I was inspired by traveling in Europe for work and seeing these zero-waste markets where you simply focus on the food. You go in, you bring your own container, weigh it, fill it up and pay for it. And I just thought it was brilliant because it really takes out the stress of trying to figure out, ‘Okay, what do I have to do with this plastic packaging now?’” The market will sell bulk goods like pastas, beans, dried fruit and grains from stainless steel gravity bins, as well as fruits and vegetables kept fresh by an ionized-water misting system, and a selection of dairy and eggs. Plus, Rainey plans to offer bulk beauty supplies like lotions and shampoos from glass dispensers, and even hopes to find a way to sell bulk toothpaste. The building will also house a community space and “bistro cafe,” which will use produce from the market for deli items, sandwiches and juices, and sell local beer, wine, cider and coffee. Meat won’t be stocked in the market, but the deli will use some cuts for its entrees. Everything sold at Roots will be as organic, non-GMO, fair trade and locally sourced as possible.
“We’ll have on-site compost as well,” said Rainey, “so that we can really maximize every little bit of everything that comes out of the store.” The concept for Roots has been brewing for more than a decade. Before working for 14 years as a global delivery manager for Hewlett-Packard, Rainey was a catering manager for chef Lisa Peterson, who owns a’Tavola Gourmet Marketplace & Cafe. She also worked at the Boise Co-op before it left its old location on Hill Road. Rainey said she used to be a typical consumer—she didn’t hesitate to buy plasticswaddled vegetables or individually-wrapped granola bars in cardboard boxes. But over the years, her environmental views caught up with her lifestyle, and her family now uses bamboo toothbrushes instead of plastic ones, keeps bees to make homemade honey (which will be up for sale at Roots) and buys as much in bulk as possible. Rainey said her frustration with the process of purchasing bulk items in containers she brought from home at places like the Boise Co-op was a big factor in moving forward with Roots. “The problem that we have in Boise is that while we have some good bulk food sections, no one there really makes it easy for you,” said Rainey. “... You have to take all of your bulk containers up to a cash register and kind of check out before you check out, so that they can weigh everything for you, and then you go and fill them and come back.” At Roots, bulk purchases will work on a streamlined honor system. Weigh stations
located around the store will allow customers to weigh their containers—anything goes, and Roots will offer glass jars, and hemp and organic cotton bags for those who don’t want to bring a vessel from home—and record the weight before filling them. At the register, cashiers will subtract the original weight from the final one to figure out the price of the item. “We want to change the way that people are consuming, but we want to make it really easy for them,” said Rainey. Roots went from an idea to a reality in early May when Rainey and her business partner, 30-year restaurant and bar industry veteran Zach Yunker, started final negotiations on the former Ali Baba Hookah Bar space at 3308 E. Chinden Boulevard. The spot is in Garden City’s Surel Mitchell Live-Work-Create District, which Rainey feels is a great fit for her community concept. The permitting process is ongoing, but Rainey said Roots should be open for business by October 2018. Right now, Rainey is funding the venture with her personal savings and support from three angel investors, but she’s planning a funding drive Wednesday-Sunday, May 23-June 10, as a final push before Roots opens its doors. “We are asking 10,000 people in the community to give $10,” Rainey wrote in an email. “... Every person who donates on our website will have their name printed on our Community Wall in the market as a sign of appreciation and investment in this Big Idea we have to create a healthier community and planet.” BOISE WEEKLY.COM

Heavens to Betsy, it’s Nicole Kidman as Queen Boadicea, a nutcase who promotes mind you, but the chaotic ‘70s of the Ramones atrocious punk rock acts when she’s not welding and Sex Pistols.

But their taste in fashion (all pendent called it “wondrous” plastic), music (metronomand “inspired.” Count me with the latter. I’m as stodgy as the next old white ic) and just about everything else makes the punk scene seem downright buttoned-down. Among guy, but even I can look back at the punk scene the group, who for some bizarre reason speak in with some amount of fondness. American accents, is a teenage girl named Zan In How to Talk to Girls, teenager Enn (Alex (Elle Fanning, featured in The Curious Case of Sharp, who lit up Broadway in The Curious Incident of the Dog) and his leather-clad mates are Benjamin Button and Maleficent). Zan decides to stage a private rebellion, conducting her own true believers in punk, crawling through grimy
little Brexit from her brood to get a taste of Enn’s punk-fueled freedom. However, don’t think for a moment that How to Talk to Girls evolves into a run-of-the-mill rom-com. The film takes a hard left turn into science fiction, and when it’s not going off the rails the only normalcy in it is chaos. Think of Xanadu on crack cocaine. Or Splash on meth. The supporting cast includes Ruth Wilson (so wonderful in Showtime’s The Affair) and Matt Lucas (Little Britain). But the highest praise goes to Mitchell, who’s accustomed to burning down the house as an actor (the title role in Hedwig on Broadway and in film) and director (2010’s Rabbit Hole, which secured Ms. Kidman an Oscar nomination). Mitchell and co-writer Philippa Goslett’s How to Talk to Girls screenplay honors all the tang of Gaiman’s original short story and adds the dollop of sweetness necessary to sustain a believable love story. Ultimately, How to Talk to Girls harkens back to a handful of other unconventional but crazy/lovely Brit films that initially defied convention but improved with age: A Hard Day’s Night (1964), Quadrophenia (1979) and Trainspotting (1996), to name a few.
SCREEN EXTRA SUPREMELY WONDERFUL: RBG OPENS FRIDAY, MAY 25 The Avengers have nothing on the RBG—aka U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, subject of one of the most popular and entertaining big-screen documentaries in recent memory. In an already crowded summer box ofﬁce, the 85-year-old Ginsberg is muscling out many of the big boys, with RBG BOISE WEEKLY.COM
HERO. ICON. DIS H S
raking in more than $3.8 million at the domestic box ofﬁce. “It’s almost unheard of to see a documentary perform this well in summer blockbuster season,” Jeff Bock, analyst at Exhibitor Relations, told Variety. “For a documentary to hit $1 million, it’s like a regular ﬁlm hitting $100 million.” RBG is expanding nationwide, opening at The Flicks in Boise on
Friday, May 25. It’s already generating enough buzz to make the Oscar shortlist for Best Documentary. The ﬁlm opens with snippets from Ginsberg’s far-right critics, slamming her as a “witch,” “evil-doer” and “zombie.” President Donald Trump calls her “an absolute disgrace.” But RBG is going strong—just witness her pumping free weights as the ﬁlm catches her in a daily workout.
“She’s like a cyborg,” says ﬁtness trainer Bryant Johnson. No wonder some of Hollywood’s top actresses wanted to portray her in On the Basis of Sex, a big-budget ﬁlm opening this November. Felicity Jones landed the much-coveted role, but in the meantime, RBG gives viewers the real deal. —George Prentice

DEAR MINERVA, I have recently started to make peace with my body. I have always been a curvier girl and there has always been pressure on me to lose weight. I have made some amazing strides to do so and part of what has helped me is using social media to post progress as well as post pictures of myself when I feel beautiful and sexy. I have one friend who continually complains about the pics as being inappropriate. Sometimes they are risque since I am nude but covered in certain areas, but I would never say they are in bad taste. How do I deal with the negativity? Sincerely, Proud Curvy
DEAR PROUD, You should never be ashamed of your body. Embrace it and love it, even if you are a work in progress. I think there’s a good chance that your friend is in the minority. There will ALWAYS be haters in this world that is why you should continue to post what makes you happy, especially when you’re feeling amazing about yourself. Because of this question I conducted a poll. Since Instagram has a wide range of people celebrating their bodies while lifting others up, I placed a poll in my Instagram story that said, “How do you feel about seeing tasteful nudes of your friends/people on IG?” The results showed that 79% voted “I Love It” with 21% of respondents saying “Nope.” So keep posting! As for your Negative Nancy friend, promptly show her the “Unfollow” button. SUBMIT questions to Minerva’s Breakdown at bit.ly/MinervasBreakdown or mail them to Boise Weekly, 523 Broad St., Boise, ID 83702. All submissions remain anonymous.

RUTH BADER GINSBURG SWAG RU Sometime during the Obama administration, Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s reputation began to transform from legal luminary b to po pop culture phenomenon.

ASTROLOGY GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Now is a favorable time to worship at the shrine of your own intuition. It’s a ripe moment to boost your faith in your intuition’s wild and holy powers. To an extraordinary degree, you can harness this alternate mode of intelligence to gather insights that are beyond the power of your rational mind to access by itself. So be bold about calling on your gut wisdom, Gemini. Use it to track down the tricky, elusive truths that have previously been unavailable to you. CANCER (June 21-July 22): “A poem is never finished; it is only abandoned,” wrote poet W. H. Auden, paraphrasing poet Paul Valery. I think the same can be said about many other kinds of work. We may wish we could continue tinkering and refining forever so as to bring a beloved project to a state of absolute perfection. But what’s more likely is that it will always fall at least a bit short of that ideal. It will never be totally polished and complete to our satisfaction. And we’ve got to accept that. I suggest you meditate on these ideas in the coming weeks, Cancerian. Paradoxically, they may help you be content with how you finish up the current phase of your beloved project. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): I highly recommend that you spend the next three weeks hanging out on a beach every day, dividing your time between playing games with friends, sipping cool drinks, reading books you’ve always wanted to read and floating dreamily in warm water. To indulge in this relaxing extravaganza would be in maximum alignment with the current cosmic rhythms. If you can’t manage such a luxurious break from routine, please at least give yourself the gift of some other form of recreation that will renew and refresh you all the way down to the core of your destiny.
BY ROB BREZSNY VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Contemporaries of the ancient Greek philosopher Pythagoras told colorful stories about the man. Some believed he was the son of a god and that one of his thighs was made of gold. When he crossed the Casas River, numerous witnesses testified that the river called out his name and welcomed him. Once a snake bit him, but he suffered no injury, and killed the snake by biting it in return. On another occasion, Pythagoras supposedly coaxed a dangerous bear to stop committing violent acts. These are the kinds of legends I expect you to spread about yourself in the coming days, Virgo. It’s time to boost your reputation to a higher level. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): My counsel may seem extreme, but I really think you should avoid mildness, meekness and modesty. For the immediate future, you have a mandate to roar, cavort and exult. It’s your sacred duty to be daring and experimental and exploratory. The cosmos and I want to enjoy the show as you act like you have the right to express your soul’s code with brazen confidence and unabashed freedom. The cosmos and I want to squeal with joy as you reveal raw truths in the most emotionally intelligent ways possible. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): French novelist Honore Balzac periodically endured intense outbreaks of creativity. “Sometimes it seems that my brain is on fire,” he testified after a 26-day spell when he never left his writing room. I’m not predicting anything quite as manic as that for you, Scorpio. But I do suspect you will soon be blessed (and maybe a tiny bit cursed) by a prolonged bout of fervent inspiration. To ensure that you make the best use of this challenging gift, get clear about how you want it to work for you. Don’t let it boss you. Be its boss.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Ancient civilizations were at war constantly. From Mesopotamia to China to Africa, groups of people rarely went very long without fighting. There was one exception: the Harappan culture that thrived for about 2,000 years in the Indus River Valley, which in the present day stretches through Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. Archaeologists have found little evidence of warfare there. Signs of mass destruction and heavy armaments are non-existent. One conclusion we might be tempted to draw is that human beings are not inherently combative and violent. In any case, I want to use the Harappan civilization’s extended time of peace as a metaphor for your life in the next eight weeks. I believe (and hope!) you’re entering into a phase of very low conflict. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Every human being I’ve ever known, me included, has to wage a continuous struggle between these pairs of opposites: 1. bad habits that waste their vitality and good habits that harness their vitality; 2. demoralizing addictions that keep them enslaved to the past and invigorating addictions that inspire them to create their best possible future. How’s your own struggle going? I suspect you’re in the midst of a turning point. Here’s a tip that could prove useful: Feeding the good habits and invigorating addictions may cause the bad habits and demoralizing addictions to lose some of their power. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “Some books seem like a key to unfamiliar rooms in one’s own castle,” said author Franz Kafka. I suspect this idea will be especially relevant to you in the coming weeks, Aquarius. In addition to books, other influences may also serve as keys to unfamiliar room. Certain people, for instance, may do and say things that give you access to secrets you’ve been keeping from yourself. To prep you for these epiphanies, I’ll ask you to imagine having a dream in which you’re wandering through a
house you know very well. But this time, you discover there’s a whole new wing you never knew existed. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Just for now, let’s say it’s fine to fuel yourself with comfort food and sweet diversions. Let’s proceed on the hypothesis that the guardians of your future want you to treat yourself like a beloved animal who needs extra love and attention. So go right ahead and spend a whole day (or two) in bed reading and ruminating and listening to soul-beguiling music. Take a tour through your favorite memories. Move extra slowly. Do whatever makes you feel most stable and secure. Imagine you’re like a battery in the process of getting recharged. ARIES (March 21-April 19): The Aries poet Anna Kamienska described the process of writing as akin to “the backbreaking work of hacking a footpath, as in a coal mine; in total darkness, beneath the earth.” Whether or not you’re a writer, I’m guessing that your life might have felt like that recently. Your progress has been slow and the mood has been dense and the light has been dim. That’s the tough news. The good news is that I suspect you will soon be blessed with flashes of illumination and a semi-divine intervention or two. After that, your work will proceed with more ease. The mood will be softer and brighter. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Do you know what you are worth? Have you compiled a realistic assessment of your talents, powers, and capacities? When I ask you if you have an objective understanding of your real value, Taurus, I’m not referring to what your illusions or fears or wishes might tell you. I’m talking about an honest, accurate appraisal of the gifts you have to offer the world. If you do indeed possess this insight, hallelujah and congratulations! If you don’t, the coming weeks will be an excellent time to work on getting it.
