Flathead Valley is a hot bed of farmer’s markets in the summer and Columbia Falls is the place to be on Thursday nights from mid-May through September when the town comes alive with two markets and open air concerts. The Columbia Falls Community Market is located at O’Briens Liquor & Wine’s Coop (www.cfcommunitymarket.com), and the Columbia Falls Farmers’ Market (www.columbiafallsfarmersmarket.com) is located at the Eagle’s Nest. Both markets feature local produce and artisan crafts as well as live music and children’s activities.
Big sounds come from the Don Lawrence Orchestra band shell at Marantette Park on Thursday nights from late-June through mid-August. For more information on the concert series, check out the local Lion’s Club facebook page.
Also check out the West Glacier Farmers Market on Friday afternoons at Great Northern Resort in West Glacier for more local flair and fare!
