Classified Rates and Requirements


Here’s an affordable way to reach Minnesota’s most prosperous readers. If you have a product or service to sell, but your marketing dollars are limited, consider Minnesota Monthly Marketplace.

There are two ways to tell your message in Marketplace!

Line Classified Advertising in Marketplace

Line Classified Rates:

• $20 per line* – Non MPR (Minnesota Public Radio) Member Rate**
• $15 per line* – MPR Member Rate

*(One line equals 40 characters, including spaces and punctuation)
**If you are interested in membership – please call MPR Membership at 651-290-1212

There is a two-line minimum for all ads. Each line is based on 40 characters including spaces and punctuation. This count is for billing purposes only, so the lines can be divided unevenly if you would like, i.e. 50 characters on one line/30 on the other as long as the final count is 80 for a two line ad.

There is no extra charge for bold, italics, all caps.

If you choose to run your ad for a year there is a 10% discount.
