Current Practices & Guidelines and Expectations


Every spring locals are itching to get outside to stretch their legs and this year has been no exception. We’ve completed two weeks of our 2020 Spring market season and business has been terrific. Thank you to the residents of Montana for supporting the local farmers and their families these past couple Saturday mornings. Remember though, that the market is expecting all vendors and customers to be familiar with and abide by the guidelines set forth by the Montana State Governor’s Office, the Montana Department of Agriculture, the Montana Department of Health and Human Services and our Flathead County Health Department. Make sure you visit the links below and be aware of the guidelines that you expected to follow.
