HELENA – The Capitol Square Farmers Market has officially started its third season.
Every Tuesday from 2:30-6:30 p.m. until October, Helena residents can enjoy fresh, local produce in the South Oval parking lot.
Products include Made In Montana items, farm-fresh fruits, vegetables, and other goods, including hand-crafted art and jewelry.
The market is sponsored by Allegiance Benefit Plan Management.
The Montana Department of Agriculture stated the market is a great way to connect local producers with local consumers to promote agriculture.
Ben Thomas, Director of the Montana Department of Agriculture, said “More and more consumers want access to locally-grown food, and this is Montana, we have a lot of local producers here who love to get together and find a way to get their product out to the people who want it.”
