Did you know that Seven Sundays got their start by vending at the Midtown Farmers Market? Hannah Barnstable, co-owner of Seven Sundays LLC, discovered muesli on a trip to New Zealand and developed a passion for its heart nature, great taste and health benefits. Barnstable launched her business in the spring of 2011 after hearing about the Midtown Farmers Market. Out of the four original muesli mixes that they sold that summer, three of the flavors are still available and sold in over 4,000 stores across the country!

By now, you’ve heard about our wonderful new temporary location at Moon Palace Books, just on the other side of Hiawatha. However, we want to make sure we don’t leave our Corcoran neighbors (who may not be plugged in via newsletter or social media) wondering where we’ve gone.

Are you interested in vending at the market, but a little intimidated by the process? Midtown Farmers Market and Corcoran Neighborhood’s Try It! Program could be for you!
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.
