 Last Week to Find Waldo and Win Prizes! 

 

The famous children’s book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting the market and twenty-five other local businesses throughout our South Minneapolis community this July. Those who spot him can win prizes, including buttons, book coupons and more! 

Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo Local in South Minneapolis!” passport with the names of all the participating sites, and get their passport stamped or signed for each Waldo they spot. Passports are available at Moon Palace Books and the Midtown Farmers Market.

The first 100 Waldo seekers to get their passports stamped or signed at ten or more sites can bring their passports back to Moon Palace Books to collect prizes. Collecting store stamps or signatures at twenty or more businesses will entitle seekers to enter in a grand prize drawing on July 31st. Find a full list of participating businesses here.

Contribute Today.

The Midtown Market strives to bring sustainable, affordable food to the community. While there's no roof over an outdoor market, the Market still has overhead expenses: as farmers are busy growing the vegetables and fruits, market staff are hard at work on the nuts and bolts of making a market run. Administering the EBT access, providing a stage for local performers, even the signs and maintaining the parking lot where it all happens takes money and staff time.

Vendor fees only cover half of the cost of running the Market. We rely on the community to contribute the rest. Please donate today!

Online contributions are quick, easy and secure. The Midtown Farmers Market is a project of the Corcoran Neighborhood Organization — please designate your donation to the Market. The Midtown Farmers Market is a 501(c)3. Learn more about what it means to be a Friend of the Market here.
