Wolf Point, MT (PRWEB) June 16, 2010
Summer 2010 is a celebration of Montana’s agricultural heritage. Visit the Missouri River Country farmers markets to get a taste of the freshest produce from the people who grew it.
Generations of farmers have made this beautiful stretch of land their home. They worked the earth to provide for themselves, their families and to contribute to America’s food supply. Farming and living on the glorious plains of Eastern Montana was a family effort. Everyone from the father and mother to the children were involved; traditions that reach into the present day culture.
Towns were formed around the vast stretches of rich farming lands in the fertile Montana plains. The communities were gathering spots for reaching out and connecting with others. Many of the small communities in Missouri River Country are celebrating or have recently celebrated centennials.
The connecting bridge between past and present is the weekly farmers market held in each of the small communities. Local farmers and crafts people continue a legacy of agriculture as they sell freshly grown produce and baked goods, housewares and homemade crafts. These markets are a rich place to find distinct gifts, and the freshest vegetables and fruits. It’s also a social event, where the community can come together for the chance to visit and chat. The friendly faces know each other and are always happy to greet and talk with visitors.
