Places: Whitefish Farmers’ Market

By Beacon Staff

Each Tuesday, from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., through September the north end of Central Avenue in downtown Whitefish comes alive with a bouquet of color and the smell of fresh fare during the weekly farmers’ market.

Truly a great place for all ages to gather as a community, browse the numerous vendors selling the freshest produce – including herbs, greens, mil, tomatoes, eggs, lamb and local honey products – and local artists booths for pieces ranging from photography and paintings to hand-made jewelry, wooden bowls and pottery. There is always a group of youngsters trying out locally made hula hoops in the park.

While perusing the merchandise, get a bite to eat from a variety of food vendors, including barbecue, noodle dishes, organic meals, pizza and kettle corn and listen to the live music by local musicians. Firefly is performing on June 29 and Lee Zimmerman plays his cello on July 6.

If the Tuesday market is hard to fit into your schedule, the valley offers numerous markets throughout the week: the Dirty Hands Farmers’ Market is each Thursdays in Whitefish at the Pin & Cue; Polson’s market is each Friday at the on Third Avenue East; 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:
