National Farmers' Market Week Celebration 

Duluth's Lincoln Park Farmers Market is hosting our statewide celebration of National Farmers' Market Week on Thursday, August 8, 2024

Brooke Cunningham

from 3-6pm, at the Harrison Community Center. Special guest this year is Minnesota Department of Health Commissioner Brooke Cunningham, staunch leader of health equity throughout MN. The Lincoln Park Farmers Market is a program of Community Action Duluth, whose mission is to "empower and engage our community to eliminate poverty.Every Thursday from mid-June through September, the Lincoln Park Farmers Market brings together farmers, artisans, and community members for a vibrant exchange of fresh produce and local goods. The market provides a $25 match for all SNAP participants and also runs the Power of Produce Club, which provides children under 18, and elders over 60, with $4 each market to be spent on fresh produce. 

Join in the fun (blueberry counting contest, zucchini car races), hear from local food farmers and food leaders - come support the Duluth area local foodshed! Find event details here.

Trending Topics

Lack of crop insurance for produce farmers impacts many farmers' market vendors. The Star Tribune ran an article that highlighted how this year's flooding exposed the inequity in the USDA's crop insurance programs. MFMA contributed data from USDA, farmers, and results from two grant projects to the story.

Food sampling! Changes to MN's "safe food sampling at farmers' markets" law (M.S. 28A.151) went into effect May 25, 2024. Go here for the updated fact sheet.
