You're Invited to the 7th Annual Foodie 4 Mile Fun Run!

The Northeast Minneapolis Farmers Market announces The Foodie Four Mile: Fun Run/Walk/Stroll, being held Saturday, June 22, starting at 8:00am. The event's purpose is threefold: encompassing a fun run, a fundraiser, and celebration of the Market’s 20th season. Costumes, dogs, and strollers are welcome. This is a zero waste event.

The four mile course will be an excellent opportunity for runners and walkers of every skill level to enjoy a run or walk in Minneapolis' most historic and beautiful areas. The run starts in Northeast at B. F. Nelson Park, winds along the Mississippi River through the St. Anthony West, Nicollet Island, and St. Anthony Main districts. After crossing the Stone Arch Bridge, the second half of the run will go through the wooded west side riverfront parks and Boom Island Park.

A portion of the event proceeds will also go to TC Food JusticeTC Food Justice works with farmers markets and local grocery stores to "rescue" the food that would have been wasted and deliver it to local food shelves and shelters.

As a “Foodie Rally,” the run is a unique opportunity for fitness-conscious foodies to celebrate the Market, enjoy awesome post-race treats, discount on Market swag, and Market coupons. Runners are encouraged to make it a “Foodie Four and a Quarter” by jogging to the Market to spend their coupons after enjoying refreshments at the finish line.

The Northeast Farmers Market is located on the corner of 7th Avenue and University Avenue NE in the St. Boniface Church parking lot.
