The St. Paul Farmers Market is launching a dual celebration Saturday, March 13: It involves a wellness event called “Well into March” and the launch of a Farmers’ Market Bingo Cookbook Club for kids.

Head to the location near Union Depot and expect to witness vendor cooking demos. Look out for free recipes and family signups for the Cookbook Club, with free virtual bingo for the kids, hosted by the FriendChip Farm.

On the wellness front, check out the free “snowga” (outdoor yoga) class, too. While there, you’ll also learn about microgreens from Minnesota’s Farm on Wheels, and about how to make a St. Patrick’s Day-inspired bone stock stew. R&R Cultivation‘s lion’s mane mushrooms, Cafe Palmira‘s healthy coffee drinks, and Groveland Confections‘ chocolates will be there from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., too, to show off the health benefits of their foods.
