Artists & Craftsmen Artists & Craftsmen There's something about meeting the artist that makes the creation more meaningful. You can't do that at a mass retailer, but you can meet our craftsmen. Maybe even commission something special. Uniquely yours! vendor profiles
Food Manufacturers & ResellersFood Manufacturers & Resellers We have become the premier incubator space for a growing local population of specialty food manufacturers.

Growers & Flower Sellers Growers & Flower Sellers Come and experience how really good fresh fruits and vegetables can be. It's the concept of slow food.

Join us for our unique Spring Vendor Program!
Saturday and Sunday, April 26 - June 1, 6:30am - 1:30pm

What We Offer The Farmers Market Annex is extending opportunities to rent premium vendor stall locations for the month of May and early June.  These spaces are only available because the Minnesota farmers do not start to bring in their crops until mid-June, which gives you the unique opportunity to sell your merchandise or services from premium, high volume locations.

What You Get Weekends from April 26th to June 1st, you will get the same premium location for the entire six week period.   People will get to know you and will be easily able to find you again for repeat sales.

We find that people in Minnesota want to get out and enjoy the spring weather and are looking for places to shop and spend some time outdoors, and our Market is the perfect solution for them.  The Market is full of spring bedding plants and hanging baskets, etc, and customer traffic is high.  We see our customer counts increase as the weather improves, peaking with the Mother’s Day weekend.

What It Costs The cost is just $750 for these six weeks, and that includes our $150 Annual Membership Fee so you’ll have access to weekends at the Market for the entire season if you choose to come back. Plus, this is a savings of $60 off our normal weekend rates for a six weeke period!
