In Minnesota—where winters are long and summers are loved—we make the most of these warm months by soaking up the sun at the lake, grilling with friends and family, and watching outdoor movies in the park. Another summer staple is a trip to the farmer’s market, and those in the Twin Cities area are lucky enough to have a number of great ones from which to choose. Whether you’re on the hunt for fresh produce, baked delights, or handmade goods, farmer’s markets have something for everyone.
On Saturday, July 27, we at Minnesota Monthly, along with The St. Paul Grill, invite you to join us for a day at the St. Paul Farmers’ Market where we’ll explore what the vendors have to offer and share tips on shopping the market.
Start the day at 10 a.m. with a guided tour of the market, then take your time picking up all of the items that have caught your eye. Lunch at The St. Paul Grill will follow at noon, featuring local seasonal produce and fantastic wine pairings.
Purchase tickets at mnmo.com/market.
We hope to see you there!
