Today is Give to the Max Day 2014!

Today is Give to the Max Day 2014 and the market needs your support! We hope we’ve already given you plenty of great reasons to support the Midtown Farmers Market, and today is the day for you to show you care. If you love local foods, building community and supporting local farmers, food producers, artisans, musicians and community groups, then please support the market on this very important day!

Help us reach our goal of raising $3,000 today and share on Facebook and Twitter to encourage family and friends to pitch in as well! The market would not be possible without the support of all of the community members and partner organizations that are involved in the market each year. Donations can made by clicking here or by visiting givemn.org and searching for the Midtown Farmers Market. Thank you all for supporting the Midtown Farmers Market and making it such a wonderful community gathering space in South Minneapolis!


Support the Midtown Farmers Market!

Give to the Max Day 2014: Tomorrow, November 13th!

Give to the Max Day 2014 is less than 24 hours away, and we realize with so many great causes to support, that deciding which organizations you would like your hard earned dollars to go to can be a tough decision. So let us try and help!

The 2014 Midtown Farmers Market season was a great success and we even set some new records. Over 62,000 customers visited the market this season and we we’re able to distribute $20,142 in SNAP/EBT tokens and $9,493 in Market Bucksto be used at the market to purchase fresh, local foods! The market also held a number great themed market days like Youth Leadership Day and the Festival del Maiz, hosted a wide range of community organizations and created a great community gathering place for residents to enjoy some live music and chat with neighbors. With your support, we’ll make the 2015 season even better!

Each year vendor fees cover less than half of the market’s operating budget and we rely on community partners and individuals to help make up the rest. Every dollar helps the market continue to do our work in the community and our ability to offer fresh, local produce to our neighbors. If you haven’t already, please share why you love the Midtown Farmers Market on our Facebook and Twitter pages, show your support by Giving to the Max for the Midtown Farmers Market tomorrow and encourage family and friends to do the same! Donations can made by clicking here or by visiting givemn.org and searching for the Midtown Farmers Market.
