The Richfield Farmers Market is a member of the MN Farmers Market Association and Minnesota Grown. We participate in EBT & Market Bucks initiatives, provided through Hunger Solutions MN, which allows customers who use SNAP/EBT to purchase food. We are committed to making healthy food accessible to everyone who comes to our market and are proud to say that all of our vendors' products come from within 200 miles or less, and at least 80% of the market products are produced in Minnesota.  Around 25 different local farmers & food producers sell at our market. The site has on-site, fully accessible restrooms.

 

OUR MISSION 
Since 1990, Richfield Recreation has operated the Richfield Farmers Market to provide access to local, healthy, and affordable foods, and to offer a community gathering space to help connect residents, as well as local producers.  The Richfield Farmers Market also emphasizes educational and recreational activities through our involvement with the Richfield Arts Commission, the U of M Master Gardener Program, and other programs and events. 

VENDORS
Our vendors are a diverse mix of local farmers, food entrepreneurs and artisans. New vendors are welcome to apply for daily vendor booths - contact Bonnie at farmersmarket@richfieldmn.gov to check availability of dates. All our vendors must be located within 200 miles of our location/Richfield. See the Vendor Information Page to apply for either our Winter or Summer market.  For other questions or to pick up an application, visit us at the Richfield Community Center.
