Tuesday Evening Market in Missoula Begins, But With Restrictions
The Missoula Farmers’ Market has been a staple in our community since 1972 and it is now available every Tuesday night. Market Manager Meredith Printz said their Tuesday Evening Market is building into a nice tradition for folks who can’t make it to the market on Saturdays or would prefer to come after work.
“Come get some vegetables, some plants, and herbs,” Printz said. “We should have a lot of other fun items coming once we get our updated plan submitted to the health department. We will be able to add in some other items like prepared food and beverages like kombucha.”
Printz said they are doing a number of different things in an effort to keep people safe while they visit the market.
“Our vendors will be wearing masks and we ask that folks that visit the market wear makes as well,” Printz said. “We ask that you make a list of what you want to buy before you come to the market and maybe send one person from your household to the market. We are having folks move in one direction. If you are feeling ill, we are asking you to please stay home from the market. We also have a hand washing station and hand sanitizer.”
From now until September, the Missoula Farmers Market will run every Tuesday night from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. and it will be located at the north end of Higgins Avenue.
They also have their own online marketplace of locally grown and produced food. You can register as a producer or as a customer. Just visit their website right here.
