There is a small market here that is open daily. It grows most of the vegetables sold there on their family farm, but they also sell meats and dairy items from other local farms.
Same here. It might not be cheaper but it supports the local economy and hopefully it is stopping some of the local farms from becoming housing developments.

SIGH....I wish we had a local market that sold local meat and dairy.

Now the farmers market is closed for the winter...it is highly regulated here. With the exception of pork from Hall, MT, the seller has to live AND farm within 50 miles of Missoula. Our local Whole Foods type store sells "local" from a wider radius and from everywhere else. All local foods have a "Made In Montana" sticker, easy to spot!
