Who doesn't enjoy getting up early on the weekend, and going out shopping for fresh and local ingredients... foods... and more. But, of course, before we get to the market... we need to vote for the BEST in Montana.

From the voting page:

Shop for the freshest items of the season under the big skies of Missoula's downtown at their farmers market, open Saturdays from May through October (and Tuesdays from June through September). Whether it's grass-fed beef from a local ranch, beets from the nearby farm, or baklava lovingly baked nearby, this market has you covered.

Where does Missoula rank right now?

At the time of writing, Missoula is ranked at number... 19. Almost dead last... but Las Vegas has us beat. Are you telling me that a Farmer's Market in Florida (#1, apparently) is better than one in Montana? Blasphemy!!!

So... how do we fix this? SIMPLE!

Time To Vote For MONTANA!

Not to guilt-trip you or anything... but it IS your patriotic duty to vote. Not necessarily in a poll for best Farmer's Market... but yeah. It takes just a second. Do it for Montana!
