Minneapolis is about to get another farmers market.
Riverplace Farmers Market will set up shop on the cobblestones of the Riverplace Building's courtyard on June 1, right next to to Minneapolis' St. Anthony Falls and historic "A" Mill building. The market plans to be open on Wednesdays from 3-7 p.m. through the beginning of September.
This will be the 37th farmers market or mini-market in Minneapolis, according to the city.
The Riverplace market's organizers have already lined up a substantial amount of vendors, including Brand Farms in Farmington and honey specialists Ames Farm. Northeast-based Red Table Meats will sling charcuterie along with neighboring cheese-specialists The Lone Grazer.
Riverplace also plans on hosting artisanal vendors like Isadore Nut Company, Curt's Special Recipe, Minnesota Nice Spice, and hot sauce upstarts Nuclear Nectar. Organizers promise a rotating cast of food trucks that includes Turbo Taco, Chef Shack, and Nate Dogs.
