Winter Indoor Farmer's Market - Tomorrow - Local D'Lish


Tomorrow the highly acclaimed Winter Farmer's Market at Local D'lish will take place. This is the second year for the Winter Farmer's Market, which has met the needs of many customers from the Mill City Farmer's Market which closed in October. 

From 10 am to 2 pm local food artisans will be providing samples and selling their specialties at Local D'lish in the North Loop neighborhood of Minneapolis.  Here's some info from the home page of Local D'lish:

For the past two years, Local D’lish has teamed up with the Mill City Farmers Market to bring you the Winter Farmer-in-the-Market event.  This event features about 20-25 vendors, a mix of familiar faces from the Mill City Farmers Market and product vendors here at Local D’lish.

At the Winter Farmer-in-the-Market, customers will find a wide variety of locally grown and produced meats, cheeses, chocolates, breads, sweets, and more!   To nurture a strong local foods economy, our farmers and producers must have a stable income year-round, and this monthly event is meant to help in this arena through the winter months.

The 2010-11 Winter Farmer-in-the-Market will be held on the following dates, from 10am – 2 pm: November 20th, December 18th, January 15th, February 19th, March 19th, April 16th

Local D'lish is owned by Jordan, NoMi neighbor Ann Yin, and her husband Yulin and daughter CC. 

Some of my favorite things I've tried at the Indoor Farmer's Markets are smoked salmon, shepard's way (sheep) cheese, Lucille's Kitchen jams (they always have it paired up with something simple yet delicious for a quick and easy hors d'ouvres), Olsen's Naturals body and skin care products... Now that I think about it, there are so many good things to try at the markets or in the store.

Head out tomorrow for a good time and some great holiday shopping while supporting your local small business vendors.

Happy Holidays!
