Festival del Maiz, Arts Activities, Blood Drive, and More -
This Month at the Market
August is prime produce season, and we’re matching that bounty with an abundance of market events. August 16th, we ask you to #FeedTheCarrot with your contributions to support the market and allow us to continue offering fun, free activities for the whole family like the free yoga, live music, Midtown Flavors Cooking Demo, and Second Saturday Arts for All activities happening that day. August 20th, help us celebrate Latinx culture in South Minneapolis with our Festival del Maiz – featuring spoken word poetry, music, and more. We close out the month with a Memorial Blood Centers Blood Drive on August 27th – save a life with your donation and then replenish with some market eats and live music. This is just a small taste of everything the month has in store – click here for a complete week-by-week list of music, fitness classes, and events, and mark your calendars for the summer’s last hurrahs!
And, of course, our friendly local vendors will be there every week selling an array of fresh produce, canned goods, honey, cheese, meat, bread, pastries, granola, and more, jewelry, books, and other arts and crafts, and ready-to-eat food to snack on while you browse and soak in the scene!
We are in need of volunteers for the 2016 season! As a local, community driven market determined to bring fresh, delicious, locally sourced food to the Corcoran and South Minneapolis community we depend on community volunteers like you.
Volunteers are needed for 2-3 hour shifts every market day to assist with processing SNAP-EBT token and credit card token sales, compost and recycling education, set-up and tear-down of the market, customer counts, and customer engagement. Commit as much or as little time as you can. CLICK HERE for more info or to sign up, or contact Mallory at email@example.com.
Confused about the market’s location?
Don’t be! We’re just 300 ft east of where we used to be. See the map below for our exact location:
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.
