Mill City Farmers Market Opens May 9

millcityThe Mill City Farmers Market is one of my favorites in the Twin Cities. Smaller and more manageable than the Minneapolis and St. Paul farmers markets, the Mill City Farmers Market features a terrific variety of artisans, farmers, demonstrations, and amazing local, sustainable foods. It's located right by the Mill City Museum, overlooking the mighty Mississippi River. The Mill City Farmers Market is open from Saturdays May 9 - October 17, from 8 am - 1pm. It's located at: 704 2nd Street S. Minneapolis, MN 55401 This weekend's opening celebration includes all sorts of events, including cooking demos, live music, activities for kids, and a special deal on The Minnesota Homegrown Cookbook: Local Food, Local Restaurants, Local Recipes. It will be a good place to find treats and gifts for Mother's Day. Check it out.
