Thank you for another great Farmers Market season! We will be back in June 2016. Until then, get briefed on the new Cottage Food Law.
WSE’S HOLIDAY FARMERS MARKET
WSE’s Holiday Farmers Market returns to the Livingston Civic Center on Saturday, December 5th from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. As in years past, it will be a shopping extravaganza with handmade jewelry, apparel, crafts, toys, and baked goods. There will be live holiday music, raffles, a strolling magician, and breakfast, lunch and snacks available for purchase all day from Gil’s Goods/2nd Street Bistro.
HOLIDAY FARMERS MARKET VENDOR INFO:
Last year’s vendors have until November 5th to RSVP whether or not they will be returning and keeping their space. Then we will start contacting the vendors on the waiting list to offer any open spaces. If you would like to be added to the waiting list, please call 222-0730 ext. 1, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can download the regulations or take a look at the brochure to see the booth layout and prices. However, we are only mailing registration forms to vendors from last year or to vendors on the waiting list as spaces open up. Please be patient. We do our best to accommodate as many vendors as we can, space allowing.
LIVINGSTON FARMERS MARKET INFO:
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, preferably before the end of March! Barbara.Benson@gallatin.mt.gov or 582-3181
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 features, 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 has lined 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. Coupons are available at WSE’s booth during Farmers Market hours while supplies last. Vendors wishing to be approved to accept SFMNP please call the office at 406.222.0730 for information.
Western Sustainability Exchange reserves the right to refuse admittance to anyone.
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.
