In this video, we learn about how the O’Hara Commons & Sustainability Center in Hamilton, Montana, worked to implement an online farmers market to help mitigate the risks of COVID-19. The online market runs in conjunction with their regular, in-person Wednesday afternoon market and continues to be a successful means of promoting local food access. This market is one of three markets offering mentorship through NCAT’s project, Sustaining Farmers Market Success, working to build capacity for markets across Montana.
