Enjoy the Gallatin County Fair this weekend, see you on the 28th!
The Gallatin Valley Farmers’ Market is presented by Career Transitions, Inc. a non-profit organization. The proceeds from the farmers’ market help to fund many programs that Career Transitions, Inc. use to enrich our community. Career Transitions, Inc. has programs ranging from GED readiness to computer classes and everything in between. They offer a range of adult education classes as well.
The Gallatin County Fairground’s Board has approved the Gallatin Ice Foundation’s request to build another ice arena on the West side of the Haynes Pavilion. The $300,000.00 the foundation received for the building will only pay for the building and the foundation will have to raise the rest of the money for the interior and the landscaping. The landscaping includes paved parking on the North East side of the building which will benefit the Gallatin Valley Farmers’ market.
Career Transitions, Inc. has joined workforce system agencies through partnerships housed in a central facility that provides educational opportunities to meet the present and future workforce and economic development needs. We currently have both warehouse and office spaces available for rent. Contact us for details!

This June we kicked off our 41st year of the Gallatin Valley Farmers’ Market. Market attendance was up from last year and our vendor turn out was great. We are proud to say that as we start our 41st year presenting the market we are continuing to grow and prosper. The weather was perfect for the years first market. We have lots of new vendors and a lot of the old ones we love! The market is expecting a larger attendance this year than ever before.

The Women’s Business Center of Prospera Business Network will once again offer a workshop especially for our farmers’ market vendors on May 17 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Career Transitions in the CWCTC center, 189 Arden Drive, Belgrade. The agenda will include a panel of successful business people who started their businesses at the Gallatin Valley Farmers’ Market. The marketing representative who initiated the “Got Milk” campaign will also present. The question and answer session is also very helpful to new and existing vendors. Another featured speaker will be a local grocery owner who features locally grown and made products. Cost is $10.
The Gallatin County Fairground’s Board has approved the Gallatin Ice Foundation’s request to build another ice arena on the West side of the Haynes Pavilion. The $300,000.00 the foundation received for the building will only pay for the building and the foundation will have to raise the rest of the money for the interior and the landscaping. The landscaping includes paved parking on the North East side of the building which will benefit the Gallatin Valley Farmers’ market. The construction of the building is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2012 and be finished by September 2012.
The construction of the ice arena will affect the Gallatin Valley Farmers’ Market because the construction site is against the Haynes Pavilion. There will be dirt piles, heavy equipment and construction materials that will limit the parking spaces. Please be patient and be careful around the construction site and equipment as you come to enjoy the Original Gallatin Valley Farmers’ Market.
Market dates this year: June 16 – September 8, 2012. No market due to the Gallatin County Fair on July 21.
Watch for further developments regarding a youth market event this summer in Belgrade.
