New market funds children’s programs at Montana Co-op
News from the Montana Co-op
POLSON — A Saturday Farmers/Flea Market at the Montana Co-op Polson HUB at 401 Main Street began June 27 and will continue year round from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event includes multiple markets of fresh food, prepared foods, art, body products, plants, and everyone’s surplus items to buy, sell, trade, or give away.
The plan for this market is to create activity in downtown Polson and keep money circulating within the local economy. Anyone can earn money by producing or creating something, or by selling surplus items. Those who create art or music are encouraged to share their talents with the community. The cooperative concept supports all local producers, individual needs, and community projects.
Currently 30 booths are available for just $10 per 10x10-foot table, or $20 for a 20x10 table, inside or outside. Those fees support the Montana Co-op Polson HUB and Kids Co-op Activity Center.
To reserve a table, please contact Jason at 406-285-1149 or 319-2000 (HUB); or email email@example.com. If you produce something made in Montana, the Co-op would be happy to feature and sell your product on a shared producer website: www.MontanaCoop.com
“We’re also looking for Montana Co-op members that have some time to spend with local youth in guiding them into producing new healthy products and services,” Moore said.
Please contact Moore if you have any time or ideas for new Kids Co-op products or services. The current Kids Co-op products that have been created and need mentors’ time include making gift baskets filled with local food products, bundling kindling using recycled wood, plants, and a variety of body and cleaning products. “We plan to have several Kids Co-op tables at this new market with local youth displaying and exhibiting their talent and interests,” he said.
