Being in the Flathead Lake area for 5 days you find yourself craving Flathead Lake cherries and Swan Lake huckleberries. My wife was looking all over for cherry jam to take home. We found everything we couldn't find anywhere else a Eva Gates Preserves.

The preserves that are produced in the Eva Gates kitchen have been sent to almost every state in the country over the past fifty years or so. They have consistently been a favorite of ours.

We first went to Eva Gates 20 years ago, and it has not changed. We have traveled all over the U.S., and these are the best preserves we have ever had. It's fun to walk around Bigfork, but it wouldn't be worth the trip with this shop.

Very cute shop lots of great Montana charm. Tons of huckleberry inspired spreads and gifts. The person working there when we went was Eva's granddaughter - only in Montana!

I have been going to Eva Gates since the 60's--though they have updated the building. It is a stop we make whenever in the area--the blackcap jam and syrup is fantastic! They do need to update their website that says they are open 7 days a week tho!

This shop uses local fruit to make a terrific huckleberry jam. It is worth the visit since the preserves are made on site. Lots of interesting things to purchase in the gift shop. The business hours are not posted. Make a second trip or order the products on-line.
