Richland County Farmers Market Begins July 9

The Richland County Farmers Market will once again be in Sidney this summer. The market will be held on Saturdays starting July 9 - Oct. 8 from 7:30 a.m. -12 p.m. at the Richland County Courthouse parking lot, on the corner of 2nd St NW and 2nd Ave NW.

There will be a variety of produce and handmade items at the market, and this year there will be additional food products available under the new Montana Local Food Choice Act. This act exempts certain homemade food producers from food licensures and requirements. Food that may be sold at the market includes, but is not limited to, baked goods including breads, pastries, cookies, and pies, cereals, trail mixes, granola, snack mixes, dried and freeze-dried products, jams, jellies, fruit butters, canned fruits and vegetables, dried herbs, seasonings, honey, whole shell eggs, and others. Items that are prohibited at the market include meat products, alcohol infused products, and any products containing marijuana, THC, or CBD. Individuals selling food products must fill out an application that is then reviewed by the Richland County Sanitarian. If you are interested in becoming a vendor at the market or if you have any questions pertaining to the market, please reach out to the MSU Richland County Extension Office at 406-433-1206.

Be sure to stop by the Richland County Farmers Market on Saturdays starting July 9 and take in the variety of produce, food products, and handmade items that the vendors in our community have to offer.
