As the peak of the fruits and vegetable season is here, there’s no better time to head to the Mill City Farmer’s Market. Set between the Mill City Museum and Guthrie Theater, I love the mix of nature’s bounty nestled amongst the urban landscape.
Held every Saturday from May to October, between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m., the market features a variety of freshly-picked fruits and veggies, along with local honey, fresh-roasted coffee, handmade soaps, jams, and Minnesota-made items.
There’s live music, along with demonstrations and theme days (this Saturday, August 20 is Pollinator Day). It’s the perfect spot to stroll around, sipping a cup of locally roasted coffee, get some delicious produce, and do some people watching.
If you’re feeling like adding to your adventure, you can stroll over to Mill Ruins Park, walk over the Stone Arch Bridge to watch the roaring Mississippi River, relax in Gold Medal Park, learn about the history of Minneapolis’ flour industry at the Mill City Museum, or take in a theatrical production at the Guthrie.
