Summer is coming — or so tradition dictates. With it come the farmers markets, and according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Minnesota has plenty of them — just shy of 130.
I was out data fishing and came across their list. I pulled every Minnesota farmers market and uploaded it to Google Docs. Have a look.
These markets are self-reported to the Department of Agriculture, so if a market from your city is missing from the list, let me know in the comments and I’ll add it.
Here’s a map. That’s a lot of fresh food.
When I’m driving across the state this summer as part of the MinnPost project Rural Minnesota: A generation at the crossroads, I’ll be trying to hit some of these. But really I don’t have to leave Minneapolis — we’ve got 27 farmers markets here. Wow.
