As a society, we benefit from farmers markets in a number of ways, some are obvious like supporting the local economy and buying healthy foods and others like the cultural benefits, don’t seem to pop out right away. I know without a doubt that our society and culture benefit greatly from farmers markets. We haven’t just lost our connection to our food and our land, but we have also lost our connection to one another. As we all move through life “disconnected”, markets present a perfect opportunity to do something for mental and physical well-being. Markets act as forums for healthy social interaction with our food, environment, farmers and neighbors!
The Duluth Farmers' Market is a great place to engage with food and people! Open since 1911, this well-known Minnesota venue is a place to watch the seasons change. After their annual opening the Saturday before Mother’s Day, you can continue to shop for fresh foods and great local products until they close the last Saturday of October. At its present location since 1953, the Duluth Market has become a landmark in its community and an important place for healthy lifestyles.
The 2012 season will kick off on May 5th. Vendors will bring with them a great variety of Minnesota’s best products, including fresh produce, plants, flowers, healthy meats like grass fed chicken and free range pork, baked goods, jams, jellies and so much more! Visit the market for more than just food, visit to make important connections. Stop by their website to stay informed on events and season information.
