MINNEAPOLIS (October 28, 2015) –Mill City Farmers Market’s 10th Outdoor Season draws to a close at this coming Saturday’s Halloween and Harvest Festival (October 31st). Join us for the bountiful harvest, kids’ activities, live music, and more! No need to be sad, because the end of the outdoor season marks the beginning of our indoor markets! Mill City is a year-round farmers market and starting Saturday, November 14th, we move inside the Mill City Museum every Second Saturday (and more), Nov 14th - Apr 9th from 10 AM-1 PM!
Visitors can stroll inside our cozy and lively marketplace and choose from an abundance of fresh, local fruits and vegetables, freshly baked bread, pastured meats and cheeses, meatless meat, expertly crafted ceramics, kitchenware, jewelry, and much more. Stop by the Info Booth for free, seasonal recipes to inspire your winter meal planning.
Each Winter Market brings a unique celebration of seasonal offerings. In November and December, we have two additional markets to ensure all your holiday shopping needs are met. On November 14th and 21st, we will have nearly a dozen of our farmers in with full tables of fresh produce for your Thanksgiving table. At our December 12th and 19th Markets, we will have tables full of produce for your holiday meals in addition to an expansive selection of unique holiday gifts and décor, including sustainable Christmas trees! Free gift-wrapping will be available at both December markets. The January 9th Market will highlight many of our local artisans and value-added products, and the February 13th Market comes just in time to get some sweet treats and unique gifts for Valentine’s Day. In March, we will have two back-to-back spring markets—On March 5th we take a field trip out west to the MN Landscape Arboretum, and on March 12th we are back inside the Museum with the first signs of Spring. Our final indoor market on April 9th will showcase some of our newly added vendors and lead us right into our regular Outdoor Market season, opening Mother’s Day weekend!
Winter markets are a great opportunity to stock up on storage crops like squash, potatoes, garlic, onions, and apples and nonperishable goods like wild rice, maple syrup, pickles, and preserves to help you eat locally all winter long.

See you Second Saturdays (and more) at our Winter Markets inside the Mill City Museum from 10 am – 1 pm!
