Celebrate Farmers Markets during National Farmers Market Week : August 4th – 10th
There is no better time to celebrate farmers market than during National Farmers Market week which takes place this year from August 4th to August 10th. In preparation for National Farmers Market Week, we’re reflecting on how farmers markets support healthy communities: They preserve America’s farmland, stimulate local economies, increase access to fresh, nutritious food, and support healthy communities. Farmers markets are increasing in numbers in Minnesota and around the country, allowing more communities to reap the benefits!
Show support of your local farmers market by visiting the market on Saturday from 8am-1pm or Tuesday from 3pm-7pm, by donating to the market to allow us to continue to keep vendor fees down and work towards equitable access to healthy, local produce, and by volunteering with the market to build capacity and strength of the market.
Thank you for supporting the market!

~Raspberries, tomatoes, sweet corn, broccoli, peas, green beans, kohlrabi, carrots, radishes, turnips, beets, cabbage, lettuce, spinach, kale, swiss chard, arugula, scallions, onions, leeks, potatoes, summer squash and zucchini, cucumbers, herbs, maple syrup, wild rice, artisan breads, flowers, bedding plants and seedlings
