Is there any more perfect way to begin a Saturday than a visit to a farmers market? In Richfield, Minnesota, you can double your healthy start with a walk or a bike ride on the adjoining trails in Veteran’s Park.
The Richfield Farmers Market opened in 1990. It quickly grew to become third only to St. Paul and Minneapolis!
Choices at the market go beyond the usual fruits and vegetables on to buffalo meat, cheese, nuts, bread, honey, cut flowers and bedding plants in the spring. Pick the right Saturday and you can have crepes made to your order after your walk. Shareology especially likes this market because it’s so easy to get to and just the right size…lots to choose from yet not a huge walk to and through. In the words of Goldilocks: just right! And there’s a playground nearby for the kids as you shop. Visual samples include:

Now grab some flowers and we’re off with all our lovely veggies. You’ve got through the end of October to shop just south of Highway 62 on Portland Avenue at 64th Street. Hours are 7 am to noon; find out more at http://www.ci.richfield.mn.us/FarmersMarket/ See you there!
