Share Article

Colle, a directory of online farmers markets and organic foods advocate, responds to an article released on the Good Food World website describing the success of a winter farmers market in Montana.

On February 19, Colle Farmers Market issues a comment on the recent success of a winter farmers market in Montana.

Gail Nickel-Kailing’s article in Good Food World illustrates the moody seasons of Montana as unpredictable and challenging. Nickel-Kailing explains that she takes solace in patronizing two markets during the winter. She explains that even in the winter, the markets are convenient, mentioning the food's freshness and proximity as perks.

The article credits one of the markets being developed by an adamant supporter of food sustainability and member of the local Community Food and Agriculture Coalition. The Heirloom Market is reported to be a well-rounded market, but special attention is given to the produce and locally grown food. Nickel-Kailing expressed her enthusiasm for the quality of the market’s merchandise, remembering“one guy selling eggs (who sold out even before I got there) and another selling locally-foraged mushrooms. My sweet tooth wasn’t disappointed either.”

Customers voice frequent claims that the markets' vendors ran out of produce before they expected and expressed regret for not having more available to meet to the demand. Nickel-Kailing states that the Heirloom Market has been operating for a number of winters but the past year was the first year it was given official recognition as a certified famers market.

Colle Farmers Market responds to the success of the winter market, saying that since winter is not a growing season for many places, the choice to purchase local produce and meat is a special treat, especially for the individuals who are keen on maintaining a healthy lifestyle year round. Colle encourages farmers markets to seek out ways to expand their niche.
