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.

There was a variety of foods and goods and my kids enjoyed riding the ponies. We'll go back but next time we'll plan better for parking. There are some free parking lots downtown that I'll check out. We arrived around 11, I know kind of late, and had to park a few blocks away. Not bad really.

Purchase some very beautiful vegetables and peaches. They were all out of blueberries though. It was very very nice not a whole lot of people and the temperature course was pleasant
