Winter has passed, and the sweetness of spring is definitely in the air. It’s time to get out in the community and visit the Minneapolis Farmer’s Market.
To Market, To Market We Go
The Lyndale Market is open seven days a week, Monday through Sunday from 6am to 1pm beginning April 25th through the month of October. The Hennepin Avenue Market is open on Thursdays from 6am to 6pm beginning May 7th and also running through October.
The Market is open rain or shine. Don’t worry there are never cancellations here! You won’t get wet underneath their famous red sheds, either.
What You Can Expect
The excitement of the growing season is underway and those tender early seasonal items are ready to make their way to your home. The market is now offering a variety of herbs, leafy lettuces, bedding plants, colorful hanging baskets, and beginning vegetable plants.
Of course the standard items are also available such as eggs, various delectable cheeses, poultry, bison meat, pork, beef, fish and of course golden honey. While visiting the market why not treat yourself with fresh cut flowers and homemade soaps, and no one can resist the aroma of freshly baked bread and sweet delicious pastries.
Calling All Chefs
The Minneapolis Farmer’s Market also includes cooking demonstrations each Saturday (May through October) at 10:30am at the northwest corner of the North Lyndale location.
The demonstrations are free and space allows for 45 individuals. Each session ends with the speaker sharing a recipe card and entertaining questions from the audience.
Come alone or make it a family event and celebrate the new season of spring at the Minneapolis Farmer’s Market. You’ll return home with a basket filled with goodies and a great feeling because you chose to buy fresh products for your family and support your local farmer.
