Providing Montana produce all winter long

BOZEMAN WINTER FARMERS’ MARKET

The Bozeman Winter Farmers’ market offers more than traditional winter staples like potatoes and onions. At each market, Gallatin Valley Botanical, Amaltheia Organic Dairy, Strike Farms and Three Hearts Farm offer a variety of vegetables and greens including spinach, arugula, mizuna, herbs, carrots, parsnips, beets, winter squash, shallots, garlic, cabbage, turnips, leeks, and more.

Now in its ninth season, the Bozeman Winter Farmers’ Market has grown due to an increased demand for a direct producer-to-consumer experience that extends beyond the typical summer market season. The market was created by farmers for farmers, and while the focus is on food and agricultural products, the approximately 30 vendors also sell local grass-fed meats, cheeses, farm fresh eggs, fermented vegetables, kombucha, honey, baked goods, syrups, preserves, grains, oils, wool, locally grown and blended teas, ethically sourced coffee, fresh juice and hot breakfast.

In addition to food and live music, each market features coloring for kids and drawings for tote bags filled with products from featured vendors. The market is continuing its Farmers’ Market Fan Cards program. Shoppers who fill their card with twelve stamps by the last market on Saturday, April 30 will be entered into a drawing for prizes from market sponsors, farms and vendors.

Generally held every other Saturday through April, the next markets are Nov. 19 and Dec. 17 from 9 a.m.to noon in the ballroom at The Emerson Center for the Arts & Culture in downtown Bozeman.
