Winter Market is coming soon!

So, here is a partial list of what our wonderful local vendors will be bringing to the winter market at Drummer’s Garden Center this Saturday: acorn squash, potatoes, onions, shallots, jams/jellies, salsas, pickles, zucchini relish, home-made cards, chicken, pork, beef, baked goods, hand spun yarn, eggs, and most likely a few more items I’m forgetting. We hope to see you then, winter market sales start at 10:00 and go until 1:00!

It’s been a slow start this year, but…

We’ll be having a better selection this weekend at the Mankato Farmers’ Market. Unfortunately our opening day last Saturday saw cold and rainy conditions. The weather kept a few vendors away and several were sick. The weather forecast is looking better this week. Rest assured your favorite spring veggies will be arriving soon, they are just taking a bit longer this year. We hope to see you all at the market this Saturday, we will be open for business from 8:00 am until noon!
