Farmers Markets of Minneapolis Collaborative
Farmers Market logo small

There are nearly 30 farmers markets and mini-markets operating in Minneapolis. The Farmers Markets of Minneapolis collaborative officially formed in early 2017. Current activities include collaborative metrics collection, marketing, technical assistance and other collaborative opportunities to build a more connected, accessible and effective market system, in partnership with the City of Minneapolis, University of Minnesota, Homegrown Minneapolis Food Council, Minnesota Department of Agriculture and other market champions. The collaborative welcomes and encourages all markets to participate.

A planning team is coordinating the collaborative efforts, comprised of five market managers, the Homegrown Minneapolis/Local Food Policy Coordinator Tamara Downs Schwei, and University of Minnesota Applied Economics faculty Hikaru Peterson and researcher Joe Nowak. Market Managers in the leadership team include: Martha Archer (Mill City Farmers Market), Elizabeth Day (Four Sisters Farmers Market), Emily Lund (Neighborhood Roots Markets -- Fulton, Kingfield & Nokomis), Jenna Yeakle (Midtown Farmers Market), Pat Nelson (Minneapolis Lyndale and Government Center Plaza Markets) and DeVon Nolen (West Broadway Farmers Market). Additional partners current include Kristen Klingler (Minneapolis Health Department), Nicolina Moua (Minneapolis Food Policy Aide), Mai Yang (Minneapolis Health Department), Kathy Zeman (MFMA), Helene Murray (MISA), Beth Dooley, David Nicholson and many others.
