4th Annual Harvest Gala! Thursday, October 8th, 7-9:30pm!



Thursday, October 8, 7pm to 9:30pm, at the Solar Arts Building.

In a celebration of the strength and bounty of the local food movement, the Northeast Minneapolis Farmers Market is excited to announce the fourth annual Harvest Gala.  Proceeds from the event will be used to fund the activities and mission of the Northeast Minneapolis Farmers Market.

The Solar Arts Building, located at 711 – 15th Avenue NE, is generously donating their beautiful third-floor event space for this year’s Gala, to be held on Thursday, October 8, from 7 pm until 9:30 pm.

The NEFM Harvest Gala features an innovative format that pair’s farmers market vendors and local chefs. Chefs and farmers team up to create tasty appetizers using ingredients sourced from the Northeast Farmers Market.  This year, expect eats by Sen Yai Sen Lek, Chowgirls, Red Table Meats, and Lone Grazer Creamery, just to name a few. At the bar, try fine wines, beer from Nordeast Brewers Alliance, and specialty-crafted cocktails by Norseman Distillery.

Flamenco guitarist David Grams will provide live entertainment. A silent auction will feature arts, crafts, certificates and services donated by local artisans, restaurants, businesses and individuals. We’re off to a great start with donations from Park Square Theater, Minnesota Orchestra, Mill City Running, Denny Kemp Salon, Minneapolis St. Paul Film Society and Minnesota Historical Society.

Back again this year… the Garden Stroll, NEFM’s version of a Cake Walk, will feature really cool market bags filled with goodies from market vendors and friends.

Admission to the Gala is $15 in advance, and $20 at the door. Advance tickets are available on Saturday, October 3rd at the Northeast Farmers Market, and on-line at:

Chowgirls Killer Catering and Norseman Distillery sponsor this event.

The Northeast Farmers Market is located on the corner of 7th and University Avenues NE, in the St. Boniface Church parking lot. The Solar Arts Building is located at 711 NE 15th Avenue.

The NEFM is seeking new Board of Directors


The Northeast Minneapolis Farmers Market has been a community asset since 2000. It is an independent non-profit, complete with a mission, bylaws, and Board of Directors. The dedication of this group of volunteers makes the market possible. We have both immediate and future openings of the board. Enthusiasm and dedication are more important than specific skill sets. We’re a pretty hands-on board so there is a variety of ways for Directors to contribute.

To obtain a position description or ask questions, please email

Thank you for your consideration!

We’re gearing up for another great market season!

Hello friends and neighbors!

Spring greetings from the Northeast Minneapolis Farmers Market! This year is our 16th year in the community, making ours the longest running community-based farmers market in Minneapolis. Highlights of last season include:

  • Ranked by The Daily Meal as number 43 of the 101 best farmers markets in the nation
  • Partnership with Rainbow Trees to protect the shade trees on our lot from Emerald Ash Borer
  • Hosting organic activist Atina Diffley for a reading from her book “Turn Here Sweet Corn”
  • Spotlighted by Minnesota Monthly magazine as one of the Top 5 markets in the Twin Cities
  • Awarded a Business Recycling Grant from Hennepin County to improve our recycling and composting
  • Diversion of 92% of our waste from landfills and incineration

2015 is shaping up to be another exciting year. Market Manager Sarah Knoss is planning another big year for us. We’ve welcomed four new board members, Kaylie Burns Gahagan and Katie Gemades. Nancy Hovanes and Chris Linde were re- elected to another two-year term. Brian Thielke is working with us again to oversee our EBT services and he’s also volunteering to head up our Zero-Waste services initiatives, including a tent dedicated to composting and recycling services.

Once again, we’ll celebrate the bounty of the season with the Harvest Gala and Corn & Brat Feed. We’ve partnered with East Side Neighborhood Services to host the Pancake Breakfast in April. And we’re kicking off the season with our third Foodie Four Mile, a “fun run” to benefit the Northeast Farmers Market and The Food Group (formerly Emergency Food Network) program Harvest for the Hungry that buys CSA shares and distributes fresh, local food to people in need.

Our efforts to bring fresh, exciting food experiences to Northeast and offer a unique weekend gathering place wouldn’t be possible without your support. We offer children’s programming, live music, food demos, and outreach for non-profits. We’re asking that you help us achieve these goals by sponsoring NEFM for the 2015 season. Your financial contribution will make all the difference as we pack a year’s worth of food, friends, and fun into 22 Saturday mornings.

Beyond supporting a community asset, sponsoring the Northeast Farmers Market is one of the best values around for promoting your business. The enclosed sponsorship form describes the options and benefits available to you. Please take a moment to consider what you can do to be a market sponsor. You can either mail in the form or give me a call; I’d be happy to stop by and pick up a sponsorship check from you! Please respond by April 15, 2015 so your business name can appear on our sponsor boards.
