Saturday, July 14 | 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. | Over 30 Urban & Rural Farms
Every summer, Mississippi Market partners with a dozen other Twin Cities-area food co-ops to host the Co-op Farm Tour. The tour is proudly sponsored by local food co-ops, whose shoppers, members, and staff cooperatively bolster our regional food economy while directly supporting local farmers, growers, and makers. At this annual showcase event, you can explore local farms as they open their doors for a full day of fun, learning and discovery. Enjoy the warm weather on Saturday, July 14, while meeting the people and places behind some of your favorite local foods available at the co-op.
This year’s tour is bigger and better than ever before, featuring over 30 urban and rural farms and exciting new activities, including yoga on the farm, blueberry-picking contests, Frisbee golf, and pick-your-own flower bouquets. During this year’s tour, learn how local hops, culinary mushrooms, wildflower honey, grass-fed beef, pastured turkeys, and more are grown, made, and raised. Plus, you’ll have opportunities to learn about innovative urban agriculture practices, regenerative agriculture, aquaponics and cooperatively brewed beer!
Printed Co-op Farm Tour guides with additional information, including a map of participating farms and a full list of activities, are available for pick up at all three Mississippi Market Co-op locations. This self-guided event is free to attend; no need to register.
