Capitol Square Farmers Market returns for second year

Posted: Jun 12, 2018 5:19 PM Updated:

The Capitol Square Farmers Market held its kickoff event on Tuesday for their second season at the Montana State Capitol Complex.

Hundreds of visitors to the State Capitol and state employees showed up for Tuesday's market.

Lieutenant Governor Mike Cooney was on hand to celebrate the occasion by handing out buttons and vouchers for Capitol Square reusable grocery bags.

He said that during his decades of working in and around the Capitol Complex, this event really stands out as something unique.

“It gives our local producers another market option for their products and it gives us a chance to showcase made-in-Montana products and the Capitol square, which is a popular spot for tourists and state employees alike,” said Cooney.

Capitol Square Market Manager Julia Gustafson said the market is a great way to show off some of Montana’s businesses.

“Montana is an agricultural state and we’re got a great group of farmers and ranchers and artists,” said Gustafson. “So this really showcases what we have in our own state.”

The Capitol Square Farmers Market  will run every Tuesday this summer, except holidays, from 2:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m.

Interested vendors are encouraged to contact organizers for more information by emailing capitolsquarefarmersmarket@gmail.com.
