Lindley park to host Bogert Farmers’ Market this season
On March 17th, one of Bogert Pavilion’s structural arches collapsed under the pressure of our winter’s heavy snow. The pavilion’s needed repairs are being assessed by the City of Bozeman at this time and it is blocked off for obvious public safety reasons. This has had far-reaching community effects on many gatherings, large and small, that had reserved the space this summer. These events then had to be canceled.
Bogert Farmers’ Market is, of course, one of those large gatherings. Determined to persevere, market organizers used a little problem-solving and were able to secure a temporary host venue. The popular summer markets will move just up the road to Lindley Park in 2019. Though displaced from its historical location in Bogert Park, the farmers’ market will again be open for the benefit of the Gallatin Valley community. By way of Lindley, the Bogert Farmers’ market will be held every Tuesday from 5–8pm beginning June 18th and running through September 10th. Lindley Park is located off East Main, next to the Bozeman Public Library.
Bogert Farmers’ Market is dedicated to the promotion of local growers, artisans, crafters, musicians, nonprofits, small businesses, and culinary artists. The weekly markets are a place for families and friends to gather, socialize, support local, and share in a fun-filled community environment! It features fresh produce from local farmers, arts & crafts, nonprofit booths, live music, children’s activities, and a plethora of dinner options. Grab some groceries, get that gift made locally for your friend’s upcoming birthday, learn something new about one of the amazing nonprofits in town, and hang out with friends and family – all without having to cook dinner!
Locals and those visiting the Gallatin Valley this summer can look forward to seeing Bogert’s regularly scheduled musicians, family activities and vendors. Find a complete event breakdown at www.bogertfarmersmarket.org. Then head down and support area farmers, artists, musicians, foodies, local friends and neighbors who need our help more than ever this year – Life’s a Garden, Dig It!
