Portfolio: Montana’s farmers markets off the good stuff
Photography of LYNN DONALDSON
A unique slice of Montana life begins awaken each spring after the seeds have sprouted and the trees’ buds have flowered and began to fruit.
Goods of all kinds are gathered, cleaned, sorted and readied in crates and barrels.
Tables and tents pop up along Main Streets, which become a special place to show off and sell local bounty and novel creations that have been grown and made in Montana.
The concept of growing, making and selling homemade products in a farmers market setting has never more alive and well.
In fact, the farmers markets page on the Montana Department of Agriculture’s website says that farmers markets play a valuable role in promoting healthy local economies.
