Market season is looming large here at the Creamery – holy cow! 2 weeks from today!! and thoughts have turned to getting back into the routine of ‘the week‘ and we realized that perhaps it was time to branch out into some other locations.
We tried and failed to add a 5th market last year after realizing we’d have 2 days a month that we could make cheese. OK, well, that won’t work.
This year, we’ve been blessed with some assistance and so decided to not just dip a toe but to jump into the market pool!
To do this, though, one of our core markets would have to be given up. The answer was easy for me – which one did I have to get up at 5am for. Ug!! So apologies to the lovely folks in Missoula as we will not be at the Saturday Market this year BUT we will still be doing deliveries SO proposing we set up a Friday mid afternoon time and location for meeting and cheesing. Please email me (so I can keep track) at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know your feelings on this.
Here’s what we’ve gotten ourselves into from May to October:
Monday 4-7 pm Bigfork Village Market
Tuesday 5-7:30 pm Whitefish Farmer’s Market
Thursday 4-6 pm Ronan Farmer’s Market
with an occasional Thursday 5-7:30 pm Columbia Falls Community Market
Friday 9-1 pm Polson Farmer’s Market
Friday early afternoon Missoula deliveries
Friday 5-7 pm Mission Falls Market in St. Ignatius
Saturday 9-12:30 pm Kalispell Farmer’s Market
We will also be doing a couple of the Sunday morning Seeley Lake Farmers’ Markets – dates yet to be determined – AND The Tailing Loop Winery in Evergreen/Kalispell is looking into doing occasional Sunday Market as well.
Locations for markets as well as anything else we’re doing can be found on the Calendar page.
Along with the Farmers Markets, the Creamery will move to summer hours on the 20th of May.
Monday – Saturday 10-5, Sunday 10-4
Come see us this summer. We’ve added a couple reminders to visit.
Boy Howdy, I think we jumped into the deep end! Good thing we can swim!!
Cheers and have a spectacular summer!
