I did not know there were farmer’s markets in the Twin Cities in winter but Metromix informs me otherwise. Golden’s Deli in St. Paul hosts a weekly farmer’s market featuring local meat, fresh eggs, salsa, honey, bakery items, cheese, jams and the like on Saturdays from 9am-1pm from now through April 30
If you want to stay on the Minneapolis side of the river, the Minneapolis Farmer’s Market also offers a wide variety of local meats from beef and lamb to pork and poultry. It opens 9am to noon every other Saturday from now until April. If the “every-other-Saturday” business is a little hard to keep track of, you can follow them on Twitter for updates.
