Places: Whitefish Farmers’ Market

By Beacon Staff

Each Tuesday, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., through September the north end of Central Avenue in Whitefish is transformed into a farmer’s market where patrons can browse and buy locally produced foods and crafts.

The first Whitefish Farmer’s Market kicks off May 26, with live music from Liquid Jazz, featuring Glacier Symphony and Chorale music director and conductor John Zoltek.

While wandering the street between musical melodies and tables of produce, stop and grab a bite to eat from a variety of vendors.

The market is truly a great place for all ages to gather as a community and find the freshest produce grown for its flavor and not its shelf life. And for the environmentally conscious, this is great opportunity to support Flathead Valley agriculture, where energy is saved by the shorter commutes.

If the Tuesday market is hard to fit into your schedule, the valley offers numerous markets throughout the week: the Dirty Hands Farmer’s Market is each Thursdays in Whitefish at the Pin & Cue; Polson’s market is each Friday at the Masonic Temple; Kalispell’s market is on Saturdays at the Kalispell Center Mall; and Bigfork’s, also Saturday, is located at the high school parking lot.

How to get there: The Whitefish Farmers Market is located on Central Avenue and Depot Park downtown Whitefish.
