Mission, Vision, and Values

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.

We envision a community-based food system that assures equitable access to healthy, locally produced food, supports reinvestment in the community, and provides for the long-term viability of our foodshed.

We place value on community, equitable access, local, small scale, cooperation and collaboration.


History

The Midtown Farmers Market was founded by the Corcoran Neighborhood Organization in 2003 with the help of many community partners and volunteers from the surrounding neighborhoods. Today’s open-air farmers market is the result of their vision to create a public marketplace at the transportation hub created by the Hiawatha light rail station at Lake Street/Midtown.

Each year over 50,000 people visit the market. In 2006, it was the first Minnesota farmers market to accept SNAP-EBT.
