Though there are plenty of fantastic things to do in Missoula throughout the year, there’s something special about a quiet Saturday morning – or maybe a bustling lunch – at the Missoula Farmers Market, which will be opening for the season in May. Like most farmers markets around the country, the Missoula Farmers Market is a great place to get a feel for a local community, experience its values, and sample a variety of fresh, local, and artisan-made products.
The main Missoula Farmers Market is held a few times throughout the week, with the most popular day to visit them is Saturday. However, the Missoula Farmers Market is only one of three markets held each Saturday (and throughout the week). Each is unique, interesting, and worth visiting, and they are all within walking distance of each other. That also means each market is easily accessible from our top-rated lodging in Missoula, MT.

We’re excited to welcome the Missoula Farmers Market back for its 51st season in 2023, which opens on May 6. Though there are three markets in downtown Missoula, the Missoula Farmers Market is the original market, first opening in 1972. It initially opened as a local farm and garden market and has since blossomed into a spectacular gathering place for the community. Today, the Missoula Farmers Market features a delectable range of freshly grown produce from area farms, including locally raised meat products, a broad range of handmade culinary delights like coffee, baked goods, canned goods, and locally-made face and body products.
In addition to the Missoula Farmers Market, we encourage you to try the other local markets; the Clark Fork River Market and the Missoula Peoples Market. The Clark Fork River Market is the perfect place to grab lunch from one of the many hot food vendors while enjoying some local live music, which typically takes place on Saturdays from 10:00 am – 12:30 pm. This market also features a range of local produce, including late-summer Montana huckleberries, freshly baked goods, and locally made products.
The final market worth visiting is the Missoula Peoples Market, which focuses on unique handmade arts and crafts items. You’ll find various artistic items here, including paintings, jewelry, soaps, crystals, clothing, leather bags, furniture, and so much more. It’s a fantastic place to witness the creativity of the Missoula community.
Though there are plenty of adventures, both big and small, there’s something so simple and enjoyable about spending a Saturday browsing the Missoula Farmers Market and the other local markets in downtown Missoula. It’s also a great way to get back outside and experience the creative beauty of the Missoula community after a long winter indoors.
