The Butte Farmers’ Market will return for the 2021 season on Saturday, May 15 from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm on West Park Street between Main and Dakota Streets in Uptown Butte. The market will run every Saturday through the summer until October 2.
The open-air fresh produce market has been a sure sign of summer in Uptown Butte since 1995. Mainstreet Uptown Butte manages the popular outdoor market, assisting vendors to get set up to sell their fresh food and handmade and Montana made products.
Vendors and customers will be advised to continue to wear masks when close to vendors or other customers.
Dogs and other pets are discouraged inside the market except for service animals. Also, cigarettes and alcohol are prohibited inside the market.
Foot traffic will be encouraged to flow one way from west to east and customers can return to the west end on the adjacent sidewalks but not through the center of the market to help improve social distancing in the market. The entrance will be at Dakota and West Park Street.
Free parking again will be encouraged in the county parking garage but only at the Galena Street entrance for the lower level.
The market will again feature a lively mix of fresh produce, cut flowers and other essential products from Southwest Montana.
Mainstreet Uptown Butte will be on site throughout the Saturday market to answer questions by customers about where to find what they are looking for in the market and for information about the many businesses nearby throughout the district.
To reduce contacts for our most vulnerable customers who would still like to place an order with a vendor and have it delivered to their vehicles, they can call or text 406-565-2249 and the market coordinator will contact the vendor and broker the purchase and delivery. Messages can also be delivered to the market’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ButteFM.
The long-running Butte Farmers’ Market has a well-deserved reputation as a lively Saturday market that provides customers with colorful and hardy bedding plants, farm fresh eggs, fruits and vegetables from vegetable gardens throughout Western Montana and from several truck gardens and nurseries in the Butte area.
The market will continue to highlight fresh local food being brought from the farm to the table through the local farmers’ market.
Later in the summer, the market will again accept SNAP and Double SNAP dollars for qualifying customers to purchase fresh fruit and vegetables with help from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) program.
