At 406 Market we help Montana producers, growers, food and beverage manufacturers connect to their community through a system of distributors and buyers.
The idea of having a Montana Market to promote and develop a community of Montana producers and manufacturers came to us while spending the last three years building and developing a local food distribution company. While the focus was on selling local products there is a large need to share the story of local producers. There is a vast amount of producers across our great state and much of what they produce is exported to larger markets outside of Montana. We decided something should be done to help grow our local food market.
We strive to make a stronger connection between the local food producers and the community. To tell their story and to build a bigger foundation of local buyers willing to support their local and regional communities. To provide a system of networks supporting the continued expansion of distribution networks.
Our Mission at 406 Market is to provide a complete range of services from helping with delivery in existing markets, or expanding into new areas of Montana and beyond. To developing new private label brands and offering validation of product source. Helping with added value programs. Facilitate connections to those who need to those who have to sell. We will work with any 100% locally grown, made, sourced and manufactured producers to promote and secure new markets, build a stronger market presence and eventually help develop online e-commerce for all producers to utilize.
