At the Minneapolis Farmers Market, we take great pride in our longstanding history. Since our Lyndale Market opened back in 1937, we’ve been a source for fresh produce and products for people all over the Twin Cities area.
Our roots in the Twin Cities actually run even deeper and longer. Minneapolis’ outdoor Fruit and Vegetable Market – the precursor of today’s Market – opened in 1876 at the corner of First Street and Hennepin Avenue. It was one of the few sources of fresh produce in the area at the time. The market drew customers and vendors from up to 20 miles away – and that’s no quick trip when you’re traveling by horse and cart.

While the first market closed in 1891, a second one opened at Third Avenue North and Sixth and Seventh Streets, drawing over 400 vendors from as far away as 60 miles. Thanks to those vendors and investors who funded nearby produce warehouses and wholesale outlets, Minneapolis grew to be one of the top food distribution centers in the United States in the early 1900s.

By the early 1930s, the Third Avenue market had outgrown its location. And in 1937, our current Market opened at Lyndale and Glenwood Avenue North, marked by the three signature red sheds that still cover our Market.
Today, we support about 200+ vendors who alternate the use of our 170 stalls. Since outgrowing our downtown location over 80 years ago, we added the Nicollet Mall Market, bringing us back to where it all began.

The Willamette Valley, Oregon’s leading wine region, has two-thirds of the state’s wineries and vineyards and is home to nearly 600 wineries. It is recognized as one of the premier Pinot noir–producing areas in the world.

Buffered from Pacific storms on the west by the Coast Range, the valley follows the Willamette River north to south for more than a hundred miles from the Columbia River near Portland to just south of Eugene. To the east, the Cascade Range draws the boundary between the Willamette Valley’s misty, cool climate and the drier, more extreme climate of eastern Oregon.

The Willamette Valley wineries are a popular tourist destination, with the area boasting a luxury destination resort, several high-end inns and many delightful bed & breakfasts and restaurants. From Portland, tourists can visit the Willamette Valley winery of their choice in anywhere from 45 minutes to two hours.
