WSE's Livingston Farmers Market
In 2002, Western Sustainability Exchange assumed the role of organizer of the Livingston Farmers Market. In the ensuing decade, music and special event days were added, and the market has exploded in number of vendors and community engagement. The market now features prepared food vendors, locally brewed beer, arts & crafts, baked goods and farm and ranch products featuring the freshest, healthiest food our region has to offer.
Every Wednesday 4:30 to 7:30 pm
May 31st to Sept. 20th at Miles Band Shell Park
Please read our FAQs first!
There will be a vendor meeting at 5:30 pm on May 3rd at the Livingston Food Resource Center. A special produce meeting will take place right after at 7:30.
We still have some opportunities to sponsor a Special Day or music at the farmers market. You can help build community and promote your business. Contact the office or download the sponsorship flyer on the right for more information. Time is running out to get your logo on the market's promotional materials.

If you are a vendor who wants a booth or a musician who would like to perform at our market, please see the forms to the right. Anyone selling food needs to contact Craig Caes, Park County Environment Health Specialist, for approval at (406) 222-4145, ext. 2, before the market. If you want to sell prepared food, you need to contact us first. We have a limited amount of space for prepared food vendors, and we have a waiting list. Please read the Food Vendor Regulations to see if you meet all the requirements first.
Fruit and Vegetable Growers: are you interested in accepting WIC checks? It’s a simple process, but you must contact Barb Benson at the Gallatin City-County Health Department. You can reach her at Barbara.Benson@gallatin.mt.gov or 582-3181.
The new Cottage Food Law has taken effect this year. Please take a moment to get familiar with it.
Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program
2017 marks the ninth year that WSE is bringing the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program to Park County. This program makes $50 in vouchers available to low-income senior citizens for the purchase of fresh, locally grown vegetables, fruits, herbs, and honey at the farmers market. Coupons are handed out at WSE's booth at the Livingston Farmers Market beginning the first Wednesday of July on a first come, first served basis until we run out.
Will you work for food?
We need volunteers to work in the booth and help with set up & tear down. We'll buy you dinner and can guarantee a good time will be had by all! Email Miranda Bly to sign up.
