This Week is Your Last Chance to Visit Many Twin Cities Farmers Markets

This week marks the end of October, the end of Daylight Savings Time, and the end of the season for most of the area’s farmers markets. So get out there and visit your favorites one last time, bid auld lang syne, and promise to greet them next spring when they return.

Here’s a list of those that will be open one more week, plus their locations, days and times. Also included are the few that will remain open a bit longer. Make sure you come out and visit them, too, especially on those inevitable below-freezing mornings when they could use a little of your camaraderie as well as your cash.
