Now that we’ve had a few 70-degree days on the books—and many more to look forward to—it’s time to get out your reusable grocery bags and get ready to shop. Twin Cities farmers’ markets start opening as soon as next weekend, and I for one cannot wait to peruse (and sample) the fresh produce, pick up bouquets of flowers, and purchase baked treats, cheeses, honey, jam, and other goods. You’ll find the opening dates for the local markets below; find the one closest to you and plan your visit.
