Farmers' Market officials posted on Facebook:

It’s incredible to think of how long we have been waiting for the moment to open the market back up again.
Covid has really thrown us a curveball but despite all that we are finally reopening on Saturday for the 2021 season!!!
We are almost there folks and we are all so excited to see you!

The event is held outside on the south side of the Civic Center in downtown Great Falls. For more information, email, call 406-761-3881, or click here to visit the website.
