Montrose has a fascinating history of food establishments that have evolved over time. The town of Montrose was originally founded to provide supplies to nearby mining camps. With the decline of mining, agriculture became the primary economy. Settlers worked the fertile valley soil producing fruits, grains, vegetables and livestock. This agricultural abundance led to the establishment of various restaurants in the area. The Montrose Farmers’ Market is one of the oldest Farmers’ Markets in Western Colorado. It is a testament to Montrose’s rich agricultural heritage. Over time, a variety of restaurants have opened in the area, reflecting the town’s growth and changing tastes.
Another influence on the restaurant industry in Montrose is the Indigenous and Hispanic people living in the area. The presence of Hispanic culture has enriched the culinary landscape, introducing a variety of flavors to create traditional Mexican and Southwestern dishes to local menus. This fusion of cultures has created a unique dining experience for residents and visitors. Today, Montrose continues to be known for its western hospitality and diverse restaurants.
