The Clark Fork Coalition is dedicated to protecting and restoring the Clark Fork River basin, which stretches from Butte, Montana to Sandpoint, Idaho. As a member-supported group of citizens, scientists, recreationists, and business leaders, the Coalition focuses on a simple vision: protect the clean water and river life that is here; restore what should be here and is not.
The Clark Fork River Market, western Montana’s newest farmers’market situated in downtown Missoula, opened its inaugural season in June of 2005. Created through the cooperation of Missoula’s long-standing famers’ market on North Higgins Ave., the Missoula Downtown Association, the City of Missoula, and the Clark Fork Coalition, the market was an instant success. It is located next to the river in Caras Park and is a lively and scenic setting for buying locally-produced meat products, fresh and local foods, flowers, baked goods, and other wares from area artisans.
