Join us this season at the Market! May 31st is Opening Day!

We have dedicated friends and fans of the market that join us every season, and we hope you’ll join us, too! Here’s what some of our visitors had to say:

“I love the Northeast Farmers Market because it has a beautiful array of home-grown produce, foods in season, flower bouquets, other fun things like pastries, note cards, jewelry, and lovely music. Also great spring rolls, as well as plants. Everybody is friendly and the market has a wonderful ambience for shopping on Saturday morning.”

“This is a wonderful, growing market in my neighborhood, sponsored by the awesome Eastside Food Co-op. It’s great to have a farmer’s market in NE Mpls!”

“NE Farmers market may not be as large as some, although you will know every vender by name, never feel rushed or crowded and always have a wonderful selection of veggies, meat and jewelry, soaps, get your eye glasses tuned and purchase really cool styles. Even relax with a massage. Demo’s. Maybe a hand-crafted gift for yourself or loved one? Ask what’s in store for the next week, some venders allow pre-paid orders for pick-up the next week, and it’s fun to hear about what’s growing on the farm. Each week brings surprizes. We think it’s a great place to meet the neighboors. Our family looks forward to our Saturday visit to market for hot coffee, fresh baked goods and to take home our shopping for the week, then a stop to Eastside Coop for the other stuff. There is always a smiling face at the NE Farmers Market! See you there soon- The James Family”
