Missoula’s Markets

Saturday mornings aren’t just for cartoons or sleeping in. In Missoula, Saturday mornings are for shopping Missoula’s outdoor markets – at least when the weather iswarm.

When market season hits, three fun outdoor markets – the Missoula Farmer’s Market, the Missoula Saturday Market, and the Clark Fork River Market – take over Missoula for a few hours each Saturday morning from May through late October.

Can’t decide which market to visit this weekend? Lucky for you, all three markets are conveniently located within an easy stroll from one another in Downtown Missoula.

Have a craving for fresh fruits and vegetables? Try the Missoula Farmer’s Market or the Clark Fork River Market.  The Missoula Farmer’s Market, founded in 1972 and located in Circle Square at far north Higgins, hosts local farmers, gardeners, and orchardists, whose fresh goods are all grown or produced in Western Montana.

Take a walk down Higgins to the Clark Fork River Market, located under the Higgins Bridge. This market also features goods from local farmers, as well as local ranchers and chefs. Seating is also provided for those who prefer to soak in the market atmosphere and enjoy the live music.

Enjoy hand-made items and imports? Situated between the other two markets you’ll find the Missoula Saturday Market located on East Pine Street. Here you’ll find everything from photography and painting to clothing, jewelry, locally made soap, and hand-poured candles.

It’s easy to lose track of time enjoying Missoula’s markets – before you know it, it’ll be time to leave. But don’t worry, there’s always next Saturday.
