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!
Dirt Day and Composting at the Market!
This Saturday, in celebration of Dirt Day, the market will kick off its composting program. We have partnered with Hennepin County Master Composters, Welna Ace Hardware and Giving Tree Gardens to decrease our waste production at the market and take another step towards our goal of sustainability.
To make our composting program successful, we need the help of our market customers! Before you throw something away, stop and think: “Am I putting this in the right bin? Is this paper or food scraps? Is this compostable or recyclable?” Making informed decisions about what we do with our waste will help us reduce the amount we produce and contribute to a healthier, more sustainable community and environment.
In addition to launching our composting program, we will have Master Gardeners and Composters on hand to answer any of your gardening and composting questions. The Women’s Environmental Institute will also be at the market providing information on vermiculture and vermicomposting.
Thank You to our Composting Partners:

Thank’s to Saturday’s Market Sponsor:
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.
