A NOTE FROM THE MARKET FOUNDER
Welcome! As a Montana local I desire to bring creative solutions to safely unite our communities by bridging the gap between the unique social hurdles of a small town - big heart community, and those creative solutions needed and desired to bolster local support and economic prosperity. With the vision and drive to connect live music, artisans, education, food, and fundraisers - I am working to find ways to support and bring humanity closer together with kindness, while adapting to the times. I wholeheartedly believe it is POSSIBLE to enjoy life while adhering to COVID guidelines and social distancing requirements. Now more than ever, businesses, artists, musicians, and communities need us to work together, lifting each other up while celebrating and sustaining the small town that we love! Please join me in embracing the power of community, connectivity, and small town camaraderie.
With love and ambition,
Community fundraising is a core element of Downtown Market's mission. One way we do that is by partnering with local organizations to host art contests between events. Participants are given a theme to inspire their art, which is then judged by the Downtown Market crew. The winning entry is printed on archival-quality paper and sold to the public as posters at quarterly Downtown Market events. Posters will also be available online. Thirty percent of proceeds are donated to the partnering organization or a cause of their choice.
