The Minneapolis Farmers Market at Lyndale Avenue opens this weekend!
One aspect of spring I really look forward to each year in Minnesota is the opening of the farmers market…and that’s no exception this year! Strolling through the market is a sure sign of spring and summer. I think knowing where the food came from makes it taste better too!
The Minneapolis Farmers Market is set to open for the summer season this weekend (Saturday, April 29th). The Lyndale Market (312 East Lyndale Avenue N) is open daily from 6 am – 1 pm.
The Minneapolis Farmers Market has been providing fresh produce and products since 1876. The current location at Lyndale and Glenwood has been open since 1937.
The three signature red sheds still cover the market. That is very impressive! To be able to offer a daily market offers much flexibility and freshness!
More than 100 vendors use the 170 stalls at the market. The vendors provide fresh and locally grown produce, flowers, meats, cheese, hot sauces, salsa, honey, baked goods and various other homestead goods.
When attending the market, remember that service animals are allowed, otherwise please leave your pets at home.
You can help out by bringing a reusable shopping bag and packaging your own goods. Consider bringing smaller bills to offer vendors exact change.
