St. Paul Farmers' Market cancels winter markets in Bachman's stores

Farmers' Markets have been allowed to continue during the governor's four-week shutdown.
Publish date:

The Winter Farmers' Markets held annual at Bachman's garden centers have been canceled due to the rising rate of COVID-19 in Minnesota.

While farmers' markets and other retail are not affected by Gov. Tim Walz's four-week "pause," the St. Paul Farmers Market – which runs the markets in Bachman's – said it was taking the step nonetheless to cancel due to spiking COVID-19 cases in Minnesota.

The markets were due to be held at its locations in Apple Valley, Fridley, Maplewood and Minneapolis. Canceling them was a "difficult decision," the St. Paul Farmers' Market said, but one that was taken "as a way of helping protect shoppers and the vendors who sell at the markets."

The St. Paul Farmers' Market will still be holding its customary festive markets and events in Lowertown. That will includes its Thanksgiving Wednesday Market from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Christmas Tree Lot weekends from Nov. 27-Dec. 22, and the Downtown Winter Market – which will be held outdoors – on Saturdays from Dec. 5-Apr. 17.

The St. Paul Farmers' Market itself will also be open throughout the winter, with 15-20 vendors on site each weekend.

There will also be four farmers' markets running in Minneapolis during the winter, including the Mill City Farmers' Market, the Municipal Minneapolis Farmers Market, the Neighborhood Roots Farmers Market, and the Northeast Farmers Market.
