Clark Fork River Market Opens With Curbside Pickup Service

The Clark Fork River Market kicked off the season a little differently on Monday when it began accepting online orders for its new curbside pickup service.

The online market will offer all of the market’s traditional vendors while COVID-19 restrictions have delayed the physical market’s opening until Saturday, May 23, and limited vendors to agricultural producers only. There will also be strict physical distancing measures in place, including limiting one customer per household.

Each week, customers can visit to place orders from 8 a.m. on Monday through 1 p.m. on Thursday, for curbside pickup on Saturday. The first curbside pickup will be Saturday, May 16, and the service will continue every Saturday this season until October 31.

After customers finish placing their orders on Thursday, vendors will package their products and bring them to the market on Saturday morning. Market staff will then assemble the grocery packages and prepare them for pickup.

Customers will be directed to pick up their orders at the cul-de-sac at the south end of Pattee Street at a designated time on Saturdays, and delivery will be available in special circumstances.
