OPENING DAY AND MOTHER’S DAY CELEBRATION AT MILL CITY FARMERS MARKET SATURDAY, MAY 10th 8am-1pm
MINNEAPOLIS (April 24, 2014)—Mill City Farmers Market opens for its 9th season of “Healthy Foods, Local Farmers!”
Come kick off Mother’s Day weekend with Opening Day at Mill City Farmers Market! After an ever so long winter, we will celebrate the much awaited spring season, farm-fresh foods, local fine arts, and honor moms with spring flowers and family friendly activities. Celebrate the spring harvest by filling your baskets with fresh asparagus, rhubarb, spring greens, carrots, snow peas, beets, Mother’s Day bouquets, market meats, cheeses, baked goods and much, much more!
At 10:00 am, don’t miss Mill City Cooks for a special kitchen demo with Market Chef Heather Hartman, who will be assisted by her lovely daughter Josephine in honor of Mother’s Day. Bulk buyer David Hampton of the Wedge Community Co-op will also be in the kitchen giving useful tips about buying in bulk.
Kids can say hello to their furry friends from Oliver H. Kelley Farm and parents, be sure to stop by Budding Farmers’ table to learn how to engage your kids all summer long on eating fresh vegetables!
Don’t forget to peruse our unique selections at the Art Market, featuring locally crafted ceramics, jewelry, and woodcraft. Be ready to enjoy an exciting performance from multi-talented local accordionist, Daddy Squeeze, playing from 11 am – 1 pm.
