There are so many unique and wonderful locally owned businesses in Bozeman. Here are a few of our favorites. Shop local Bozeman!
1. Vargo's Bookstore
It’s hard not to love Vargo’s bookstore in downtown Bozeman. From the unique selection of records, featured Montana authored books, staff picks marked throughout the store to jazz floating in the background, this place is unlike any other and that’s just how we like it.
A newcomer to the Bozeman scene, Knife is serving up some really, really delicious sandwiches and it seems like all of Bozeman is taking notice. With walls of windows looking towards Main Street, this has got to be the sunniest little lunch spot downtown! Photo credit: www.facebook.com/knife-sandwiches
3. Music Villa
Walking into Music Villa is like walking into another world. The walls are lined with incredible, one-of-a-kind and limited-edition guitars and you’ll often find a musician or two strumming along in the corner. The staff is friendly and incredibly knowledgeable and there’s often something like an in-store songwriting session, instrument clinic or live performance going on here.

4. Outlaw Brewing
Can’t decide what we love more about Outlaw Brewing. Is it the beer? The patio? The free popcorn? The food trucks outside? Or the fact that its kid friendly? We could never choose. Photo credit: www.facebook.com/outlawbreing
5. Montana Fish Co.
If you are looking for some of best sushi in Bozeman, there is no doubt that you’ll find it here. They are always updating the menu, so you’ll never get tired of the selection and the quirky, cozy space will make you never want to leave! Photo credit: www.facebook.com/montanafishco
6. Wild Joe's
The coffee is great, the baristas are friendly and there’s almost always an old-time regular at the window sipping coffee and reading the paper. Our favorite thing about Wild Joe’s? The way the huge paneled windows in the front perfectly frame the Ellen Theatre across the street. Photo credit: www.wildjoescoffee.com
7. Clark’s Fork
We’re big fans of a well-stocked salad bar, and if you ask us, Clark’s Fork is winning at its salad bar game. On top of that, their cinnamon rolls are some of the best things we’ve ever tasted.
8. MAP Brewing
Literally on every best of Bozeman list we write, you just can’t beat the mountain views and delicious brews at MAP Brewing. Although it’s hard to beat a summer afternoon on the MAP patio, this is a great place to hang out year-round.
We just love how cheerful and colorful this downtown boutique is! Aside from the beautiful selection of women’s clothing and accessories, this is a great place to find unique gifts and home décor. Photo credit: www.pinterest.com
HeyDay is our go-to for gift shopping, no matter what the occasion! This store has everything you could think of, and more. Even if you’re not shopping for anything in particular, just browsing this beautiful downtown space is an experience!
