Partnering up with Minneapolis Craft Market and Frank & Ernest Foods once again, the Linden Hills Farmers' Market opens its seventh year on Sunday, June 7. Every Sunday thru September, 50+ farmers, food producers, ready-to-eat makers, food trucks and artisans gather together with the neighbors of South Minneapolis in the lovely Village of Linden Hills. Every market day we see between 3,000 and 4,000 customers.
Unlike most Twin Cities farmers' markets, the Linden Hills Farmers' Market brings on new vendors throughout the season. However, given the intense interest in selling at our marketplaces, vendors are encouraged to stay abreast of opportunities and register early and often. We do routinely sell out of dates, and we wouldn't you to miss out by delaying your registration.
Minneapolis Craft Market (MCM), with a rotating selection of makers, is the best place to discover emerging artists and new design talent of the North. MCM supports the day-to-day operation of the market, and curates the arts and crafts vendors.
Frank & Ernest manages the day-to-day operation of the market, and curates the food vendors.
This market is open to packaged food producers (human and pet), farmers (produce, proteins, nursery, farmstead and value-added), ready-to-eat foods, food trucks, musicians, authors, business sponsors and nonprofit groups. All aforementioned vendor types must become a 2020 F&E Member before registering.
This market is also open to artisans and arts and crafts vendors. These vendor types are managed by Minneapolis Craft Market (MCM). This vendor type must be an approved MCM vendor and register with MCM. If this applies to you, do not contact F&E or the Linden Hills Farmers Market to apply and/or register to sell at the LHFM. Instead please see the MCM website.
Each of the partners (Linden Hills Farmers' Market, F&E and Mnpls Craft Market) will take an active role in promoting markets to their audiences, with dedicated marketing dollars.
Seeking Vendors Who Grow, Sell & Promote:
Now accepting registrations from growers (produce, proteins, fruits, nuts, foraged foods, mushrooms, farmstead cheeses, fisheries, value-add). LHFM's unique market model limits our grower numbers to optimize our farmers profits, thus making your time at our market more profitable. In recent years, we've focused on admitting fewer growers and its worked! Our growers are making more money, allowing them to make greater capital investments and even reduce the number of markets they have to attend week to week. Due to a few relocations, we have several openings for growers this season. This is unique for this market, and a terrific opportunity for our sustainable ag community.
In recent years we've heard from customers seeking packaged and ready-to-eat foods that fall into the following categories: vegan, gluten-free, paleo, Keto and organic. In particular, we'd love to host a food truck that features more healthful selections, such as salads, smoothies, and low carb bowls.
In order to streamline our registration, we have created opportunities specific to businesses, musicians and authors seeking to spend time at our market. The aforementioned can now become an F&E member like any other vendor, and then register!
