Vecinos,
It's time to dust off those re-usable market bags and bust them out for the upcoming and long-awaited Midtown Farmers Market opening day! Our beloved market will kick off on Saturday, May 4th from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in their 2019 season location which will be on the plaza between Moon Palace Books and the Hub Bike Coop.
But the most important question is - are you ready for the goat yoga? You read it right. Opening day includes a session with Goat Shine, pictured below, for some yoga with friendly goats. If you're serious about doing it, please do register on their eventbrite page.
If you're curious about other amazing farmers markets throughout Minneapolis, the City has an online interactive map that will show you the address, season dates, and opening times for each market.
Please remember that most of the markets accept SNAP-EBT (“electronic benefits transfer”) cards as payment to give residents on federal food assistance easier access to fresh, healthy food, as well as Market Bucks, which provides $10 in additional healthy food to market shoppers using SNAP-EBT.

I look forward to seeing you at the Midtown Farmers Market to honor our local, nutritious, and affordable foods!
