The Libby Area Chamber of Commerce created a subcommittee with the intent to bolster Libby’s Farmers Market scene. In response, The Farmers Market at Libby has been formed as a non-profit under the Chamber’s organization. The Market is run by a dedicated market committee comprised of Chamber board members, vendors, and interested Libby residents.
The Farmers Market at Libby provides a place for local farmers, artists, and craftspeople to connect directly with consumers; AND enhances the quality of life in the Libby area by providing a community activity which fosters social gathering and positive interaction.
- Expand the availability of foods that are fresh, flavorful, unique, nutritious and affordable to the Libby community.
