Welcome, Farmers' Markets!

Farmers’ markets in Minneapolis and St. Paul set up shop this weekend.

Freak snowstorms and below-average temperatures aside, indisputable signs of spring arrive this weekend: the Twin Cities’ beloved farmers’ markets. Brimming with more flowers than Westminster Abbey during the royal wedding, vegetables so bright and fresh they put all grocery-store produce to shame, and more varieties of honey, bread, meat, and cheese than you thought possible, the markets return in a few short days, reminding us that summer is indeed on its way.
