Shopping at and supporting the farmers’ market circulates money within our community, helping to keep it strong. Local farmers and artisans at the market continue to help our community thrive by recirculating your wisely spent dollars.
Vendors at our market are required to make or produce their goods wholly or substantially from within 40 miles of Mankato. This stipulation keeps food miles, waste, and resource use to a minimum. They believe in healthy soils, foods, and families, practices that positively affect our community.
Raising heirloom variety plants and heritage breed animals supports vendors’ ideals of promoting biodiversity and strengthening our local food security.
