Help the Market on Front Bring Market Deli-Style Cuisine to Downtown Missoula

Missoula, say hello to the Market on Front. Say hello to fresh, fast, locally-sourced food that’s as wholesome and unique as the Garden City.

From freshly-made, grab-and-go sandwiches and salads to mouth-watering entrees served in a vibrant downtown setting, the Market on Front will offer healthy, convenient prepared foods and select groceries to fit the Missoula lifestyle.

Sounds good, right?

Missoula's new Market on Front deli will have a street-level storefront in the new Front & Pattee parking structure.

The Market on Front is getting ready to open its doors in late spring, but in order to put the finishing touches on the endeavor, they need Missoula’s help. That’s why MoF owner and founder Ben Sokoloski has started a Kickstarter campaign to fund the remaining necessities.

Sokoloski says, “I created this Kickstarter campaign to help fund the final push to open the Market, and to get friends, family, coworkers, acquaintances, and local food lovers involved through a sense of collaborative ownership. By funding the project this way, I can personally meet, thank, and celebrate with everyone who becomes a backer.”

The project’s goal is to raise $25,000 in just over a month. It’s an ambitious undertaking, but Sokoloski believes that it’s possible, given Missoulians’ love of good food and helping new local businesses.

Not only will contributors be rewarded with a sense of pride in helping the Market on Front open its doors, Sokoloski is offering a bevy of donation incentives. Incentives range from Market on Front stickers and tins of house-made seasoning for small donations, to private menu tastings, private dinners, and invitations to collaborate on the menu for big-ticket donors.

The Kickstarter campaign began on February 15 and closes on March 22. You can see a video of Ben talking about the project, learn more about incentives, and make donations on the Market on Front Kickstarter page.

As Sokoloski says, “Donors can help me make Missoula an even healthier, more locally-focused community by supporting this project today. I look forward to thanking each of them in person!”
