Of the many reasons I love Minneapolis, the Mill City Farmers Market is definitely on the top of the list.  I’m sure part of it is because I can walk there and part because I can get a coffee, fresh lemonade OR cucumber mint water; curry, crepes OR Chef Shack snacks; local pork, vegetables OR fresh flowers and see tons of cute babies, little red-heads AND adorable kids selling organic vegetables all in a half-hour time span.

I’ve mentioned (and complained I’m sure) before that the summers are so busy I don’t get there nearly as much as I would like to but when I do? I’m sure to soak everything in.

    I love that the shot of you with the bloody mary is now a featured one on your profile :) What is that last bowl? It looks delish!

      It was a duck tostada from Chef Shack! Not the best thing I’ve had there, but still very good!

    Hi Emily – I love the photos! I just did a post on the market as well. It is my favorite place in the city on a Saturday morning.

    That is one of the things I am looking forward to the most when I come to MN! I plan to go the 18th…maybe we could meet up there.

    I love your new pic in the corner!

    Is it sad that I live in MN and I have never been there? Yes, it is.

    Yup. You know about my love for that place! Images of that place just feel homely to me and that makes me happy. Still yet to sample chef shack though! Maybe this weekend?!? It needs to happen.

    I actually haven’t been to the MCFM yet! But I heard they’re having some cool fall harvest dinner or something…? Are you going?

    I would LOVE to get over there! It’s on my to-do list. I’ve only been to the other Minneapolis one. Maybe even tomorrow I will check it out! :)

    I love that you all have such great places to eat at your FM. Our one here is starting to grow in that area with crepes and a few other things, but nothing like what I’ve seen in larger cities. It really makes going there a weekend affair when you can hang out and get a meal with your groceries.
