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!
The Minneapolis Farmers Market is set to open for the summer season tomorrow (Saturday, May 1st). The Lyndale Market (312 East Lyndale Avenue N) is open daily from 6 am – 1 pm. There is no set date yet for the Nicollet Mall Market to reopen; check their website for the latest updates.
Their vendors provide fresh and locally grown produce, flowers, meats, cheese, hot sauces, salsa, honey, baked goods and various other homestead goods.
Due to COVID-19, they ask that you please keep your distance. Masks are required for all customers and vendors unless medically exempt. No dogs are allowed, only service animals.
You can also help out by bringing a reusable shopping bag and packaging your own goods. Consider bringing smaller bills to offer vendors exact change, and of course, if you feel sick, stay home. 🙂
