 About Us:

Since 1990, Richfield Recreation Services has been responsible for the coordination of the Richfield Farmers’ Markets. Both markets have been a destination for shoppers looking for fresh and healthy fruits and vegetables, garden plants, musical performances, family art activities, and a gathering place where residents can connect with others in the community.

 

 

We are proud to say that all our vendors come to us from 200 miles or less and at least 80% of the market items are produced right here in Minnesota!

 

The Richfield Farmers Markets are a member of, and supports the initiatives set forth by the Minnesota Farmers Market Association and Minnesota Grown. We also participate in EBT & Market Buck Initiative, provided through Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota and the MN Department of Human Services, which allows customers who use SNAP/EBT to purchase food from the farmers markets. We are committed to making healthy food accessible to everyone who comes to our markets. 

For more information, call Richfield Recreation at 612-861-9385 or email FarmersMarket@cityofrichfield.org or visit us at the Richfield Community Center (7000 Nicollet Ave S)
