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!
Are you passionate about local food, connecting communities and building a strong local economy? Do you think everyone should have access to fresh, healthy food? Do you already love the Midtown Farmers Market, but want to find a way to become more involved?
Serving on the Midtown Farmers Market Advisory Committee might be just the opportunity for you! The Advisory Committee is a group of sixteen volunteers who work to support the market, particularly in the areas of:
- Marketing and Digital Media
- Fundraising and Sponsorships
- On-Site Support
We are a working committee of individuals who believe in the mission and values of the market and can dedicate our time and expertise to helping the market achieve its goals. Committee members serve a one or two year term and volunteer approximately 10 hours per month, including a monthly meeting, along with other group and individual volunteer work.
The mission of the Midtown Farmers Market is to create a vibrant forum in South Minneapolis that connects community residents and nearby rural food producers in a mutually beneficial economic and cultural exchange.
The market is a project of the Corcoran Neighborhood Organization (CNO), and the Midtown Farmers Market is a standing committee of the CNO Board of Directors.

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.
