To Our Valued Basque Market Customers

We are happy to welcome you back to our Market!

Our #1 goal is to keep each other safe and healthy.

So, we have some new ways of operating.

These procedures support those recommended by the CDC, Central District Health, and other local, state, and federal organizations responsible for public health and safety.

We are asking our Market employees and all customers to help us
re-open, and stay open, by following these rules:


  • No more than 12 customers in the Market at a time and 12 on our patio
  • Face masks are required when not eating/drinking (we are too)
  • Practice proper social distancing (at least 6 feet separation)

Please don’t make us have to gently remind you of these rules.



Two easy ways to shop!

  • Walk In: shop, and/or order food to stay or to go
  • Call In: let us know what you would like, and take it away or have us bring it to your car

Thank you for your business!

Our hours are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday, 11 am – 5 pm.

Thursday and Friday 11 am – 7 pm.

These have been difficult times and the journey ahead is sure to be everything from exciting to unfamiliar…and that can bring a little fear of what’s to come. At moments like these, a strong sense of komunitatea (community) and adiskidetasuna (friendship) can ease those fears and we can collectively move forward with bravery.

Ongi Etorri!

We had an event catered by the Basque Market and I can’t recommend them enough! Not only was the food incredible, but the staff we interacted with were so kind and helpful. We were able to see the chef’s create the paella and it was delicious. Not to mention, the Piquillo Pepper Cheese was to die for. They even packed up remaining food so attendees could take it home!


Tara and her team were incredibly helpful and responsive to our needs/requests. We went on a tour of the Basque Museum & Cultural Center and also had a special performance by the Oinkari Basque Dancers which was a huge hit with our guests. This was a unique experience and one we will never forget!  If you’re in Boise, eating at the Basque Market is a must!
