Midtown Farmers Market

We'll be at out regular booth at the Midtown Farmers Market on Saturday, May 21 and it will feel like home. Why? Because in May 2007 this is where it all started. Back then, we sold one kind (Smokies) at one spot (Midtown) every Saturday through November. And it was the enthusiastic support we got from the market, the Corcoran Neighborhood and the folks who came to our booth that convinced us we had a product with legs.
We come back to the Midtown every year to support this lovely market, meet with our long-time customers, try out new flavors and just soak up the wonderful community atmosphere.
The Midtown Farmers Market was founded in 2003 by volunteers from seven South Minneapolis neighborhoods. This open-air farmers market was the result of their vision to create a public marketplace at the hub created by the new Hiawatha light rail station.
Since its inception, tremendous community support has enabled the Midtown Farmers Market to grow and evolve. It was the first Minnesota farmers market to accept SNAP-EBT. Each year over 60,000 people visit the market. Midtown Farmers Market shoppers’ votes propelled it to 4th place out of 5,272 farmers markets nationwide in the 2009 Local Harvest and Care2 Love Your Farmers Market Contest.
We'll be there several times this summer, so you'll have lots of chances to drop by. Check our Events Calendar for all the dates and come say hi!
