In light of National Farmers Market Week, we are thrilled to share that our MN representative Ilhan Omar will be visiting the Midtown Farmers Market today – Tuesday, August 13th between 4:30 and 5:30pm. No public remarks are planned – just a tour! We are delighted to have her tour the market to speak with vendors and community members. Rep. Omar is a strong advocate for local food systems, community health and inclusive public spaces. As a former child and family nutrition educator with the University of MN, she knows first-hand the importance and impact of community-based farmers markets.
This Saturday, July 27th, you won’t want to miss Bike to the Market Day !

If you were at the market, or tuned in to Jazz 88 for Bluegrass Saturday morning this past week, you may have caught Henry Kisitu, of Jajja Wellness. In case you missed it – here’s our own interview with Henry for our Faces of the Market feature.
Jazz 88’s Bluegrass Saturday Morning with Phil Nusbaum will be LIVE at the Midtown Farmers Market from 8am-11am THIS SATURDAY. You won’t want to miss interviews with vendors, find out what’s new this year from market staff, and of course live music from none other than neighborhood favorite – the Roe Family Singers! Make sure to tune in wherever you are (maybe you’ve fled the city this 4th of July weekend?), or see the broadcast for yourself while grabbing some veggies at the market!
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!
Join Ani for yoga this Saturday from 8:30-9:30am!
Yoga for All meets you where you’re at. With many options for every pose, including options for a seated chair, explore the strength, flexibility and joy yoga can bring your body exactly as it is today. We’ll be doing a gentle flow sequence perfect for warming up before, or stretching out after, exploring the farmer’s market.
So much is happening this Tuesday at the market! Douala Soul Collective will be spinnin’ records from 3:30-5:30pm, PLUS find ~free~ Zumba from 5:30-6:30pm. Our market sponsor, Mother Earth Gardens will be around to talk gardening and after all that, maybe grab a Geek Love slice and a beer at Moon Palace? In any case, don’t snooze on Tues!
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.
No Market this Saturday, May 18th! 🌩☔
