Welcome to the Montana Co-op and Kids Co-op Online Farmers Market, in partnership with the Camas Organic Market. We're currently serving Hot Springs Montana and surrounding communities (within 20 miles) by providing access to local food, organic grocery items, and prepared meals. The Market is now open ; order before Monday @ NOON, then pick up your order on Thursday 4-7pm in the courtyard @ Camas Organic Market or choose HOME Delivery during sign up. Please check our market often as more and more local product will be added as we grow.
If you would like to set up a delivery service to your town in Montana, please sign up for free and we will work together on getting this same service and products delivered to you at your "community driven" Food HUB! Once this is established, all of your local farmers and artists can sell into this shared online market.
For the benefit of our local food producers, please consider signing up for a recurring order of fruits and vegetables, and prepared foods. If there is anything that we are selling that you would be willing to commit to purchasing weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly, please email us at info@MontanaCoOp.com, and let us know the item and how frequent you would like to receive it. For example, consider ordering any of the items below every week:
FRESH BREAD & SPECIALTY PIZZA
Lettuce, Cucumbers, Spinach, Eggs, Milk, Cheese, Meat, and more...
SNAP Accepted on all food items; pay in store on pickup.
Double your SNAP dollars on Fruits & Vegetables only at Camas Organic Market store, buy $10 on Tuesday or Thursday and receive a $10 coupon (maximum $20 per week) for additional organic vegetables.
2) MAKE YOUR GROCERY ORDER anytime online.
3) RECEIVE YOUR ORDER on Thursday (only if ordered before Monday at NOON, otherwise it will be delivered the following Thursday, the next weekly ordering cycle). "PICKUP" at Camas Organic Market from 4-7 pm where a mini-farmers market will be featuring local vendors, farmers, music and prepared farm-to-fork meals! Masks mandatory for vendors and recommended for outdoor customers. As an option for receiving your order, you may choose "HOME DELIVERY" when making your order online or call 406-285-1149 for arrangements.

The Montana Co-op was officially formed in 2012 to unite food producers and consumers together in a shared co-op business with the purpose of creating a local food system with many thriving community Food HUBs. To have a sustainable local food system, we must be involved in all aspects of the food chain, from garden to plate. We're educating and mentoring young and new farmers, adding value to the crops we grow by preparing value added food products and use those ingredients to make healthy meals.
The Montana Co-op is creating this local food system by establishing a statewide network of "community driven'' food hubs that work together and share resources. The process of starting a food hub begins with engaging the people through the Community Heart & Soul program to discover shared values, needs and vision for the future of the town or neighborhood. The Montana Co-op's first attempt of proving this concept of starting a "community driven" food hub started in Polson, MT in 2014-2017. See video. The second location is in Hot Springs and just entering Phase 2 of the Community Heart & Soul program.
The Kids Co-op is a local non-profit 501(c)3 that provides education, life skills, and experiences in civic service and many career tracks like producing and marketing local healthy food. The Kids Co-op board members are all youth and majority Native Americans. By cooperating, anything is possible.... including having a sustainable local food system.
