Great Falls Original Farmers' Market

2 Park Dr S (Civic Center Park)
406-761-3881

The origin of the Great Falls Original Farmer's Market dates back to the 1970's when Hutterite colonies sold their produce door-to-door. In the late 1970's a handful of Colonies and local farmers started setting up by the Civic Center and thus began the unofficial Great Falls Farmer's Market. They made it official in 1982 when they adopted bylaws and became a non-profit trade association known as the Great Falls Original Farmer's Market.

The Market started in Margaret Park on the north side of the Civic Center. When they outgrew that space they moved to Whittier Park on the south side of the Civic Center. Mike Winters, a former market manager, recalls that when he became manager in 1993 there were 35-40 vendors and when he left in 2000 there were 110 vendors. As the popularity of the Market grew so did the number of vendors so when it needed more space it expanded onto Park Drive and into the parking lot across the street known as the Downtowner Lot.

biggest Farmers Market I've ever been to. Lots of fun for the whole family. Try the Huckleberry cinnamon roll.

Always a great time to get the foods you want or to try something new. Fresh fruits and vegetables and many baked goods. Lots of crafts and artisan products.

Love the farmers market. Crafts and fresh produce. They have children's plays, music, face painting. What a fantastic way to spend time rallying and shopping!

This is a large outdoor market. Lots of baked goods, crafts, food, and even a little produce. The layout is a bit odd and there isn't as much produce as you would expect at a farmers market, but it is a good time and worth seeing.
