BOZEMAN, Mont. – The Gallatin Valley Farmers’ Market is winding down the last two weeks of its 2018 season.

The Farmers’ Market has been around for more than 40 years and for more than 20 has been run by Career Transitions.

Employment and Training Manager Kristi Wetsch says when the non-profit first took over the market there were around 60 booths, and now it has grown to around 200.

“I think more people demand more things like organic vegetables, you know, locally grown or we have authors and so I think the growth of the community not only grows this physically, but also challenges people to really produce some wonderful stuff,” said Wetsch.

She says with more booths, the quality and variety of the products sold has expanded.

The last farmers’ market of 2018 will be next Saturday, Sept. 8, at the Gallatin County Fairgrounds.
