Yellowstone Valley Farmers’ Market is back for the season in Billings
BILLINGS – Crowds of people flocked to Skypoint in downtown Billings on Saturday to browse produce and other produce sold by local vendors at the Yellowstone Valley Farmers Market.
âWe’re full of people. Everyone is happy. They enjoy the fresh veg, the produce, the baked goods. We have Flathead cherries. It’s just a big community gathering, people are so excited to be here, “said Lena Kingman, master of the Yellowstone Valley Farmers’ Market.
About 65 vendors have set up their booths around downtown Billings. People could buy all kinds of hot items and foods, and kids could have fun with face painting and balloons.
It was the first time the Yellowstone Valley Farmers Market had returned downtown since the COVID-19 pandemic. Last year, the market closed due to social distancing restrictions.
Kingman said people were happy to find the event.
“It’s great to be back. I think everyone is happy to be back, our salespeople, our customers. We’re really, really happy to be open.” Kingman said.
The market is held every Saturday in downtown Billings from 8 a.m. to noon. The final date of the market is scheduled for October 2.
