Aren’t you simply itching to get your farmers market season underway? What with all this teasing weather, I keep expecting to see the tents on Nicollet Mall every Thursday I drive in. Well, it’s not much longer until we can kick into high market gear, here’s a little date sheet to tuck into your calendar.
Minneapolis Farmers Market … OPEN spring market Saturdays 9am – 12pm. Season opener APRIL 21, Nicollet Mall opener APRIL 28. I need some Mrs. Kelly’s teas and some more hot sauce from that hot sauce guy.
