The lady that helped us was so nice, she kept offering us samples. Great idea! We had to buy some of their huckleberry and chocolate fudge, it was sooo good. Great selection of gifts, and prices were pretty reasonable.

If you're downtown Bigfork Eva Gates is a must see. So charming and friendly. The best Huckleberry Preserves and syrup. I like to buy the baking mixes also. Great gifts to send at Christmas.
