First Thursdays at Minneapolis Visitor Information on Nicollet: Celebrate Farmers Market Season May 4th

Via a May 1 e-newsletter from Meet Minneapolis:

May is the month of consistently warmer weather and sunnier days – meaning it’s the perfect month for farmers market openings across Minneapolis. In celebration of the upcoming season, Minneapolis Visitor Information on Nicollet will be hosting a farmers markets kickoff event Thursday, May 4 from Noon – 2 p.m. as part of its new First Thursdays program. The First Thursday each month, Minneapolis Visitor Information will host a variety of in-store events at our convenient location at 505 Nicollet, Suite 100, directly across from the METRO Nicollet stop at 5th Street.

Special deals and sneak peaks of products will be available during the event. Participating vendors include Leprechaun Dreamcycle, Soderberg’s Floral & Gifts, Minnesota Nice Spice, Bare Honey, Scrappy Bags and Moxi Malas. Representatives of the Minneapolis Farmers Market will be on hand to answer any questions about this year’s farmers markets, including where to find them, when they’re available and what you might find when you shop all season long.

• Free ice cream treats to the first 50 people, compliments of Leprechaun Dreamcycle (one per customer)
• 20% off all in-store Mother’s Day flower orders from Soderberg’s Floral & Gifts. Local delivery only.
  o Fresh Spring Tulip Bunches available for in-store purchase. $10 each, 2 for $15 or 3 for $20.

Along with all this farmers market frivolity, we’ll have Minneapolis Visitor Information’s usual fabulous selection of Minneapolis and Minnesota-made products, art and more, along with transit and bicycle info from Move Minneapolis an help with your questions about the city!

Meet Minneapolis is a private, not-for-profit, member-based association. It actively promotes and sells the Minneapolis area as a destination for conventions and meetings, works to maximize the visitor experience and markets the city as a desirable tourist destination to maximize the economic benefit to the greater Minneapolis area.
