So you want a bit of home and you live in Montana? Just ask for it and just maybe on a shelf will be that special touch of Hawaii or Texas or where ever...

I love this place! Get wonderful smoked prosciutto, hard salamis, etc. Good cheese selection. You can just buy a sandwich or buy a pound... I like to get exotic balsamic fruit vinegars here. I know there are other places to get some of these items, but here I can just wander aisle to aisle and find unusual legumes or chili sauces or pastas or...

Give yourself an hour or so just to explore and enjoy. Then order lunch and sit inside or out.

We wanted to wander about SW Montana, and a friend recommended a shop/small cafe-eatery, and market in Butte. We had cherry pie at their house after dinner last year that was to DIE for, (and I don't even like pie), and she said you can get them at the Front Street Market. It is Italian-centric, but offers up just about anything you could want. World class cheese selection, great wine room, candies, jams, sauces, mixes... four small tables serve lunch type food, but we got there around closing time so I can't comment on that. Many, many of their hand prepared foods are available frozen, with cooking/baking instructions, and I'll vouch only for the cherry pie, but everything looked SO good. My husband said it reminded him of a cool general store in Napa Valley he'd been to. Because I had dogs in the car, I didn't buy any food, but scooped up a couple of bottles of some good Italian wines, and on the recommendation of a regular at the cash register, another bottle of a French wine that she said was an amazing summer refreshing wine ( a rose, and I don't usually like roses, so I'll weigh in later), served super cold (she bought 4 bottles). Very friendly staff, willing to help with anything and everything. I've had their (frozen) lasagna too. The night I had the cherry pie. yummy.

We were traveling near Butte mid-afternoon and looked for a good place to grab lunch. My husband had a pastrami sandwich and soup and said it was great. I am gluten intolerant and although there was nothing gluten free on the menu, the owner made me a great salad - fresh greens, fresh veggies, fresh fruit and great meat. The store was very clean and stocked with every Italian food you can imagine - really fun place to grab a bite and shop the shelves. The prices were great too!

I had lunch there a couple of weeks ago and enjoyed every bite. The sandwich (Italian) was tasty and the soup (chicken with wild rice) was absolutely outstanding. Service was friendly and efficient.

When I'm in Butte the Front Street Market continues to be a favorite stop, not only for the lunches they serve but also for the wide variety of wines and other foods on offer. I would LOVE to have this market in my neighborhood here in Seattle!

The Front Street Market is one of those places where when you walk in the door, you just stand a little taller, breathe a little deeper, and feel a little better about the world. This is an old world market with great food, wonderful atmosphere, and lots of things you will not easily find in our modern stores. Today, we were driving from Missoula to Billings. We stopped in Butte to visit the Front Street Market for lunch. We met wonderful people and had a great meal. Butte is a special place and one of the best places to visit in Butte is the Front Street Market.
