Exciting New Farmer's Market!

   Exciting news for  Fulton Neighborhood in Minneapolis and those who live near by. Their new farmers market opens this Saturday! That is tomorrow for you slow pokes..  I am so excited as this is so close to me and now I won't have to run downtown and deal with all the crowds. This farmers market is just a few shorts blacks away. The following is an excerpt from their website with the pertinent information. You can also access their website here. I will be uploading some photo's to share my new found joy on Saturday. Here's to no rain in the AM on Saturday. Though if the rain must come you will see me out there welly and raincoat clad still enjoying the day! The weekly neighborhood farmer's market is what make urban living so easy, fun and of course cozy. I also am excited to see the craft vendors..  :)

The excitement centered around the opening day of market has been tremendous. The organization has been busy completing the many tasks for a successful season. We want to thank again all the folks who have volunteered their time to assist with the market.
We have over 20 vendors committed to the market. Vendors include – general and specialty vegetables:  Weed Patch, Waxwing Farm, Uproot Farm, Peter’s Pumpkins, Garden of Egan, Pine Acres Farm, Yer Yang and Savanna Vue.  Fruits and berries:  Mary Dirty Face Farm, Sweetland. Meats and eggs: Alaska Organics, Brauchers and Singing Hills for cheese.  Bakery and prepared foods:  Sunstreet, Patisserie 46, Big River Pizza, Gai Gai Thai, Chef Shack and Public House Coffee.  Jerry Stanton for pickles and canned goods. We will have a variety of plant vendors for the early weeks of the season and craft vendors for your enjoyment.
We expect that the market will develop into the local gathering spot for  neighbors to get to know each other and have a cup of coffee or prepared foods while buying their locally produced vegetables, fruits, cheeses, breads and pastries.
The Fulton Market values your input and thoughts. Please follow us on Facebook or Twitter (@fultonmarketmn) and our website for additional information.  To volunteer at the Market or to help staff the FNA table, e-mail
When:   Saturdays, 8:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. from May 21 through end of October
