Mill City Farmers Market

The first time I went to the Mill City Farmers Market was in February last year at the Winter Market.  Housed in the Mill City Museum, the market is packed with food vendors, arts and crafts booths, clothing, gifts, and live music.

Mill City Winter Market

The market was founded in 2006 by Brenda Langton of Spoonriver Restaurant.

For people with food allergies there are lots of surprises like gluten free products, muffins, pasta and sheep cheese and yogurt.  Organic produce, local farmers, art, and live music in a historical setting.  What more could you ask for?  Besides, it's a great place to go on a cold winter day. 

This past Saturday we went to the summer outdoor market.  I thought it would be just a narrow corridor in the space between the museum and the Guthrie Theater, but it was much bigger than that.
