PLACES: Whitefish Farmers’ Market

By Beacon Staff

People gather every Tuesday, between 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., through September at the north end of Central Avenue in Whitefish for a farmers’ market featuring fresh produce and Montana-made goods.

The first Whitefish farmer’s market kicked off on May 31, and featured prepared food from vendors, live music by Porter Creek, and of course, an abundance of fresh produce from family farmers throughout the Flathead Valley. Kids and adults alike can enjoy popcorn, ice cream, grilled corn on the cob, and other delicacies made right here in Montana.

After passing through the long line of fresh produce, you can head on over to the other side of the park where you’ll find locally made merchandise including: necklaces, art, clothes, candles, books, handmade furniture and much, much more.

The market is also a great place to meet with friends, and helps support local farmers and families.

If you can’t make it to Whitefish on Tuesdays, there are other farmers markets around the valley. Bigfork holds their farmers market at Bigfork High School, June through September, on Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Kalispell hold its farmers market at Center Street and Fifth Avenue West, April through October, on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon.

How to get there:
The farmers market is located in downtown Whitefish. If you’re coming from Kalispell, take U.S. Highway 93 straight to Whitefish. When you enter town, U.S. 93 turns into Spokane avenue. Simply follow Spokane avenue through downtown, take a left on 2nd street, and then take an immediate right on Baker Ave. The farmers’ market is two blocks down right across from Great Northern Brewing.
