In 2002, Western Sustainability Exchange assumed the role of organizer of the Livingston Farmers Market. In the ensuing decade the market has exploded in number of vendors, community participation, and economic development. The 2014 market season will bring, once again, prepared food vendors, arts & crafts, baked goods and of course, farm and ranch products featuring the freshest, healthiest food our region has to offer.
In addition, Market Master Rob Bankston is lining up music for your entertainment; special event days to celebrate, educate, and inform; and surprises to delight!
WSE is also once again offering the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program. Vendors wishing to be approved to accept SFMNP please call the office at 406.222.0730 for information.
Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program
2014 will mark the sixth year that WSE will bring the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program to Park County. This program makes available $50 vouchers to low-income senior citizens for the purchase of fresh, locally grown vegetables, fruits, herbs and honey at the Farmers Market.
