Hello summer: it's market season in Livingston

Welcome to the Livingston Farmers Market!

Above you see Mari with her ever-present warm joy inviting you to taste her new guacamole and salsa. I've written about her fabulous bean dip. Don't miss out on any Mari's Montana Kitchen offering.

Elsewhere in the market there were plenty of delightful things to look at, sample, and buy.

Plant starts for the garden were a popular offering.

If you want to grow your own produce in Montana, you might want to invest in a greenhouse.

Soft spring greens beckoned to those who don't want to wait for fall harvest.

I was intrigued by the Montana Roots group that, among other activities, teaches Bozeman students how to garden without dirt. Today they were selling their hydroponic lettuce -- so clean and tender!

Elsewhere, I saw honey (from hives on the outskirts of Bozeman), jelly (made from fruit grown in the vendor's garden), and bread (from Crust and Crumb Bakery).

Some pretty pottery caught my eye as it glistened in the late afternoon sun.

You get mighty hungry wandering through any farmers market. Today I stopped at the Tumbleweeds gourmet-on-the-go food wagon to buy a Thai burrito. Believe me, it's delicious! Look for Tumbleweeds at major food events around the Bozeman area.

My circuit ended at Mari's table, where I picked up my guacamole and salsa to take home, and also bought a copy of Cliff Murray's new book, Zombie Apocalypse NOW. I'd like to say I can't put it down, but as I read it, I have to keep getting up to make sure the windows and doors are tightly latched. Contact Mari to buy a copy to add to your zombie apocalypse collection.

As you can see, there's something for everyone at the Livingston Farmers Market this year. Have fun!
