Midtown Farmers Market—Fresh Local Flavor For All.
Enjoy freshly prepared food while you fill your bag with produce, meats and cheeses from local farms, browse the wares of local artists, and enjoy the entertainment. Join us every Tuesday and Saturday throughout the season at the most accessible market in the Twin Cities. Whether you’re coming by car, bus, bike, or train, we’d love to see you at the market!
Sorry, no dogs please!
This weekend is our first “Feed the Carrot!” day of the 2015 market season, when we ask you to support the market with a cash donation. Your donation shows your love for the market, and helps it continue to grow and thrive. This is your chance to show your support! Make sure to take pictures, make posts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, then tag them with #FeedTheCarrot to encourage your friends, family and neighbors to do the same.
Why should you donate to the market?
Vendor fees pay for less than one-half of the operating costs of keeping our market running. Passing on the full cost of the market operations to our vendors would cause prices to rise and be passed on to customers. But shoppers at the market can offset this cost by donating what you can, keeping the market as affordable and accessible as possible!

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.
