I have a phone meeting in the morning, but I plan on coming by after that.

Soooooo .... what are some things I might find there?  Squash?  Wild edibles?

I stopped by at 11:45 and was impressed by this indoor market!  I hope there is a venue for a continued indoor market throughout as long as farmers have produce to sell us!

We were able to get everything we normally get at the saturday markets.  All the growers / vendors had excellent quality veggies, and their displays were beautiful. 

Among the highlights: wildcrafted mushrooms, raw honey, lavender, art, beautiful squash varieties, and fresh spinach!

Stop by next saturday!

Thanks for coming by. It was a really successful first week! We will continue to have local produce and other fare as long as its available, but will also begin to highlight other local/regional items like grains and legumes, as well as dairy, eggs and meat items. When our fresh local produce runs out we will source other organic items, as close to home as possible, as well as other staples, olive oil, nuts and in season produce, like citrus, dates etc. Thanks again for your support!

I'm gonna be at the winter market tomorrow from ten to noon - the whole time. I wanna meet like minded missoulians and talk shop. Maybe we can make a podcast if people are into that sort of thing.

Yup.

A funky cool old building. I'm sure it has some amazing history of some kind.

What an awesome synchronicity! Some of the folks at the weekly free school I attend were just talking about the Heirloom Market last night, and I was thinking it's about time for me to finally check it out this week. Looking forward to it!

I listened to the podcast about this market. It sure is a shame that the government always wants to shut good things down simply because they weren't asked permission. Something has got to give. I really like the work-around they were able to come up with.
 
Did you see how Paul cut 87% off of his electric heat bill with 82 watts of micro heaters?
