Brain Health Day!
Come stock up on food that's good for your brain and your body this Saturday at Mill City Farmers Market! We will be expanding our market footprint this week to accommodate our neighbor and sponsor AAN and several exciting vendors, including Northern Fires who will be serving up wood-fired pizza made with fresh market ingredients!
Get here early and receive a FREE bike helmet! The American Academy of Neurology (AAN) and its foundation, the American Brain Foundation, will give away and fit 1,000 bike helmets this Saturday in an effort to raise awareness of brain safety to help prevent head injuries in Minnesota. Plan on arriving early as quantities are limited!
