Your Guide to Minnesota Farmers Markets this Summer
When I was a kid, nothing sounded worse than going grocery shopping, plant shopping or visiting a farmers market. Now, as an adult, all of those things actually can be fun... well, fun might be an exaggeration to the grocery shopping part, but finding plants and items at a farmers market can be fun and satisfying.
There are so many Farmers Markets in the area. Last year, during the pandemic that kept us all at home for the most part, I didn't notice that there were this many. And there weren't, but this year, they are back in full swing. Almost anywhere you travel in Minnesota, you will be able to find a Farmers Market. And some of these are pretty extensive. There is of course great produce, but there are also products of the produce pre-made. Sometimes you can find jams, jellies, homemade sauces, cheeses, baked goods and other things that you might not be able to find in stores. Some products you might even want to stock up on, because you can only find them at the Spring/Summer Farmers Markets in the area.
