Think of a farmers market in the Twin Cities and you'll probably think of the one on Lyndale, or the St. Paul Farmers Market in Lowertown. But there are almost 30 markets and farm stands in Minneapolis alone.

That's part of the reason why the City of Minneapolis has launched a new map, which you can access here, to help people find the market closest to them.

Each pin on the map reveals the address, season dates and opening times for each market, which will be updated as more information is made available.

The Minneapolis Farmers Market – also known as the Lyndale Market – is now open daily for the season.

The Thursday farmers market on Nicollet Mall is once again relocating to the Hennepin County Government Center South Plaza at 300 S. 6th St. due to the ongoing reconstruction of the mall.

Among the reasons to shop at farmers markets, other than the health benefits of eating fruit and vegetables, is that the money you spend supports the local economy, with farmers keeping 80-90 cents per dollar of sales, the city says.

You can find out more about Minneapolis farmers markets on this Facebook page, while a list of St. Paul and suburban Twin Cities farmers markets can be found here.
