The Try It! Program seeks to give small businesses an opportunity to try a farmer’s market experience at the Midtown Farmers Market with limited financial investment. Our goal is to help emerging entrepreneurs explore whether or not becoming a vendor at the Midtown Farmers Market is a good fit for them and their product. We prioritize Twin Cities residents who identify as having low-income, are black, indigenous and/ or people of color, identify as women, trans, femme, or gender non-binary. Since 2003, the Midtown Farmers Market has built a reputation for incubating small businesses, and we strive to ensure that the opportunity to innovate and grow is accessible and beneficial to all community members.
