The farmers market is a Minnesota summer staple. With dozens of markets throughout the Twin Cities, you’re sure to find one in your neighborhood. Weekend markets in Minneapolis and St. Paul draw the largest crowds, but small suburbs offer weekly or bi-weekly markets seven days a week.
R&R Cultivation’s team loves summer farmers markets as much as other Twin Cities residents. By selling our organic mushrooms at many markets throughout the metro, we have the chance to interact with our customers directly while offering locally grown, high quality produce. And we’re not the only ones to benefit! Here are a few of the things Minnesotans love about buying gourmet mushrooms at the farmers market.
Enjoy the Experience
Most of us don’t delight in a trip to the grocery store or co-op. We go to pick up our weekly groceries and hightail it out of there before the evening rush shows up. In contrast, a farmers market is an almost transcendent experience: fresh air, sunshine, happy people everywhere, and not a fluorescent light to be found. You can enjoy food vendors’ diverse dishes while shopping among aisles and aisles of fresh produce. Some farmers markets even offer entertainment for the kids!
Support Local Growers
Our farmers market mushrooms are freshly grown at our urban farm in New Hope, MN. We’re proud to offer high quality gourmet mushrooms to our Minnesota neighbors and friends. Supporting local farms is a win-win; you get some of the freshest products at an affordable price, and we get to continue adding new mushroom varieties, improving our grow rooms, and hiring local employees. These are the same employees you’ll see at our farmers market booths, excited to tell you all about the day’s offerings.
Find Other Locally Grown Produce
Speaking from personal experience: you may not always have a solid meal plan for your week when you head out to shop. That’s not a problem at the farmers market, where you’ll find possibilities everywhere you look! Inspiration may strike when you see a bunch of ramps or a long braid of garlic. Our gourmet mushrooms taste great with almost any vegetable, so you’re bound to find a great combination of ingredients at the market. Of course, you can also check out our mushroom recipes before you head out if you’d prefer to stick to a grocery list.Are you ready to step out into the beautiful Minnesota summer and enjoy a local farmers market?
