PRESS | CELEBRATE MINNESOTA FARMERS MARKET WEEK AUGUST 4-10, 2019

National Farmers Market Week is celebrated each year over the first week in August. Over the weekend, Governor Tim Walz declared the week Minnesota Farmers Market Week as well. The story was featured on KAAL TV.


At the Sunday Saint Paul Farmers Market, a mystery corn shucking champion defeated MN Gov. Walz and Minnesota Department of Agriculture Commissioner Thom Peterson! This story was featured by City Pages.


In the words of our former Market Manager David Kotsonas, "Farmers markets across the state represent a town’s gathering point, the center of the local community."


This week in Minnesota, you can submit your favorite photos from your farmers market adventures to MFMA at kguenther@mfma.org or by posting on social media with the hashtag #mymnmarketphoto19 to be entered to win a gift certificate to your local market!


We can't say enough about how important it is to support our farmers. This graphic, prepared by the Farmers Market Coalition, sums it all up:
