About Helena Market Days

Supported by City of Helena
Hosted by Helena Market Days Committee

Helena Market Days has been created to establish a Farmer's market in Old Town Helena. The Market will be held at the Helena Amphitheater 8am-Noon every Saturday until the end of August. The mission of the Helena Market Days is to provide a weekly community event for all ages that will: Provide a source of fresh fruit, vegetables and local goods to residents; Highlight Helena; Encourage residents to get in the habit of coming to Old Town Helena  

This market is being created to function as an economic development tool and a community gathering place. The purpose of the market is to promote locally grown/made products, highlight Old Town Helena and encourage visitors to patronize nearby businesses. It is also hoped that the Market will foster a sense of community and improve quality of life. The intention is that vendors, customers, downtown businesses and residents will benefit from this market.
Components that make up the market are 80% farmers along with artisans, food and art demonstrations, kids activities and featured local musicians.

Artisans and Makers

Don’t be shy, these local artisans and makers are our most coveted. We love our artisans and makers, so come out to see who will be featured in the Park next to the Pavilion. Our opening day at the Market will offer one-of-a-kind handmade arts and specialty items.
