If you've ever grocery shopped on the eve of a big holiday - you know what you are gonna get; long lines, scowling customers and haggard employees. The Last Minute Markets change all that. Plus, we add beer. The big boxes got nothing on these. 

 

Geared toward those customers with planned family and friend food functions (and almost all of us do); these markets bring together produce, proteins, packaged food products and ready-to-eat makers. Food trucks welcome. Space is limited, and only a few vendors per category are included. We expect between 20 and 30 vendors per market, and expect to see between 800 and 1000 customers per market. Further, we know that Minneapolis taproom's biggest days of the year - are those just before and after our winter holidays. 

 

These markets are ideal for those businesses that pre-sell and then allow for pickup. If your foods are fit for festive larder (or in the creation of one), then the Last Mini Markets are for you. 

PARTNERS \\ Each of the partners will take an active role in promoting the event to their audiences, with dedicated marketing dollars. 

  • Minneapolis Craft Market for our Headflyer market on Wednesday, November 22, with a rotating selection of makers, is the best place to discover emerging artists and new design talent of the North.

  • Frank & Ernest is bringing on the foods. 

  • Headflyer Brewery and Taproom; and Lakes & Legends Brewery and Taproom. 

This market is open to packaged food producers, food trucks and ready-to-eat food makers. By becoming an approved F&E vendor today, you can register for these market's tomorrow. Please note, all craft vendors are organized by Minneapolis Craft Market. Please apply here.
