3. Fall Harvest – Stock up on Healthy Fall Veggies

Saturday & Sunday – September 26 & 27

It’s going to be a beautiful weekend and the perfect time to visit the St. Paul Farmers’ Market.  We have a bounty of fresh local produce for all your canning and freezing needs. Thinking about making salsa…we have it all. Tomatoes, peppers, garlic, leeks and more. Melons, squash and pumpkins are a sure sign that fall has arrived.

Have you ever given any thought about purchasing an electric car?  We are hosting an electric car show at the market on Sunday, September 20th from 9am – 1pm.  Join us in learning about the ins and outs of electric cars.
