Greens for Good!
Support healthy foods + local farmers at Mill City Farmers Market!
In recognition of Hunger Awareness Month, we'd like to kick off September by bringing attention to our Greens for Good program, which is a partnership with Campus Kitchen and is sponsored by Delta Dental. Each week, our vendors donate to a program that helps feed low-income residents of the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood. Since June, our vendors have donated over 3,000 lbs of produce!
On Saturday, we invite our neighbors and customers to join us by donating to those in need.
You can find donation boxes at the Delta Dental booth at the top of the Market on your way out so if you'd like to drop a bunch of carrots, some extra peppers, or any other fresh veggie, it would be much appreciated.
On Saturday, you can look forward to an exciting assortment of produce, local art, live music, and more. Make sure to check out additional vendors and community partners in our expansion space across 2nd St!
Check out who's in on our Vendor Map!
See you at the Market - don't forget your grocery list!
