Kingfield Farmers Market October 11, 2010

Shareology hit Kingfield Farmers Market in Minneapolis for the first time Sunday and was veerrrrrrrrrrrrry impressed!   Lots of variety in a small space.   She was motivated towards Nicollet Avenue by Rick Nelson of the Strib, and he does not disappoint!

He recommended SunStreet Breads and he was ever so right; Shareology got a loaf of bread to go with vegetable soap she had just made.  Mr. Nelson recommended getting there early, and he was right about that too!  SunStreet was sold out of turnovers by 9:30 am, but lots of other delights remained:

There’s been an outbreak of lavender flowers that look like roses but are probably more likely a relative of those cabbages folks  like to plant in their yards come fall.  Purpleholic Shareology lingered in lavender:

Kingfield is known for  local food, good music, and handmade crafts  …  http://www.kingfieldfarmersmarket.org/

Open Sundays from 8:30 am to 1 pm at 43rd and Nicollet; look for the white tents on the west side of the street.

Shhh…..Minnesota hasn’t actually passed that late frost warning time yet…it really isn’t safe to  put too much stuff in the ground yet….shhh…..

However, some farmer’s markets are taking the risk for us;  look what Shareology found Saturday:

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!
