The farmers market is OPEN thru October 25th, 2020!
What's a weekend like?
Let's say you have never been to the Farmers Market Annex before, what will you find? What sets us apart from the dozens of other farmers markets in the Twin Cities?
A little different than normal
We care about the health and safety of our visitors, our vendors, and our staff. As a result things are a little different than normal around the Farmer Market Annex. First, we ask anyone who may feel sick in any way to stay home. We also ask you wear a mask while at the farmers market. You will find us regularly sanitizing the market (tables, ATMs, restrooms) and adding extra space between our vendors among other precautions. Regardless of what is going on in the world or here in Minneapolis, we want to feel safe and comfortable when you come to shop at the Farmers Market Annex.
Now, what's the Annex like when we don't have a pandemic?
Two blocks of vendors
We are part of the largest open air farmers market in the region, along with our neighbors the Minneapolis Farmers Market. Our long-standing working partnership has allowed both our markets to grow and thrive together.
Wide variety of small, local businesses
We feature a mix of vendors unmatched at any other local farmers market. There are rows and rows of small, local businesses excited about what they sell. From farmers, to artists, to chefs, to those selling products of all kinds they truly love and believe in. Truly an eclectic mix of small businesses.
Family, Fun and Fresh
We offer a fun, family friendly environment where you can spend a couple of hours, or the whole morning exploring. We feature live music from local musicians almost every weekend. There are plenty of activities for your kids to do too: from our bounce house, to Chick'n Wing the clown, to face painting and more. We also offer a clean, safe environment to wander and shop, with climate controlled restrooms, shelter for those rainy days, and plenty of seating.
So come visit the Farmers Market Annex if you never have and if you were here last weekend, we hope to see you next weekend too! There are always a few different vendors, more produce coming into season, other food to eat, and something fresh at the Farmers Market Annex. Come feel good about buying local and supporting small family businesses!
We are a Next Generation Farmers Market!
Visit the NEW Beer Garden!
Our neighbors at Unleashed Hops and Hounds have opened their patio, back in the Urban Garden, to farmer market guests from 10am - 1pm every Saturday and Sunday. Grab some food at the market then come back to the Beer Garden for a barley pop or mimosa; responsibly of course!
