Village Farmers Market Blooms


Village Farmer’s Market Blooms in St. Anthony Village

Just a month after its grand opening on July 12, the Village Farmer’s Market is thriving.  Neighbors from St. Anthony Village, Northeast Minneapolis, New Brighton and miles around are gathering Monday afternoons to select from the the day’s produce picks and more.  Along with fresh produce the Market features home-produced treats and food vendors.

More than a market, this is a community-building initiative.  A special feature of the VFM is the weekly Shop and Learn series.  Future S&L programs include a program on Metro Transit, an introduction to Chinese acupuncture techniques and a session on the art of calligraphy.  On August 30, local author Gail Olson will talk about her new book, St Anthony Village: hog farms, floods, tornadoes and alligators. All of the Shop and Learn sessions are held at the St. Anthony Library in the mall.

Shoppers at the VFM sport burlap shopping bags bearing the Market’s logos. Shopping bags are on sale at the VFM station at the Market.

Also on sale at the Market are discount cards good at most SAV shops – possibilities include everything from tea at the Tea Source to a free book evaluation at The Corner Store to reductions at a mix of service providers.
