I learned Latin names such as, plantago major, for Common Plantain even before I learned my ABC’s. These salves are natural, safe and gentle, yet powerful, effective and very versatile. They have been so valuable to our family and friends over the years for healing, I decided I wanted to share them with you. I have created Botanical Aid to do just that. I hope you will find these wonderful salves to be of great benefit to you and your family, too. "

perfectly imperfect baking logo Perfectly Imperfect Baking 6/4, 6/11, 6/25, 7/30, 8/13, 8/20, 9/3 Richfield, MN   "I have been baking for friends and family since I was about 7 years old. I have always loved to bake and used it for relaxation. While many people began baking more during Covid, my baking really slowed down as I was not going into the office or meeting with friends who I usually would bring treats for. As I began baking again, I realized how much I missed it and started baking all of the time. Making the transition to a Cottage Baker seemed the natural thing to do, and in February I applied to become a Registered Baker. I still work full time, but this is a great way for me to unwind at the end of the day. :) I have done a few events for the Richfield Indoor Farmers Market, but I am really looking forward to summer events. One of the most popular items has been the Homemade "Twix" Bars. Shortbread Crust topped with Homemade Caramel and Chocolate, and finished with just a touch of salt to balance out the sweetness. Another fan favorite is my Lemon Bars, with the same Shortbread Crust. Having friends who have dietary restrictions, whether it was a gluten allergy or someone following a Keto diet inspired me to try some Keto versions of some of my treats. Currently I offer Lemon Bars, Brownies (Regular and Turtle), Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Coffee Cake Muffins as the Keto selections, but I may expand that as the summer goes on. For summer markets, I will be offering the Keto treats, along with Chocolate Chip Cookies with Homemade Caramel, Malted Chocolate Chip Cookies, Outstanding Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, and of course, the Twix Bars and Lemon Bars. I also will be bringing a variety of muffins and scones. "

cropped-The-farm-logo-1 The Farm of Minnesota 5/14, 5/21, 5/28, 6/4 Hutchinson, MN Certified Organic since 2014 "The Farm of Minnesota, located between Hutchinson and Dassel, Minnesota, lead by Dan and Donna Moe. The Farm of Minnesota offers a weekly CSA shares, fresh produce at farmers markets, and service to our local restaurants and co-ops. CSA’s (for Community Supported Agriculture) are a way for the food buying public to create a relationship with a farm and to receive fresh fruits and vegetables directly. Here are just a few of the benefits to this arrangement: You know by whom, where, and how your food is being grown. The produce you receive from The Farm typically has more nutritional value than food that has lost some of its nutrients in storage, or being transported long distances. Just because an item is labeled “organic” at the grocery store, doesn’t mean it came from a local farm! You are directly supporting a local farmer, without any middlemen, which means every penny goes back into the food you receive! CSA’s are not a new concept, but they are springing up everywhere as people learn more about them. In 1990 it was estimated that there were 50 CSA’s in the entire United States. Now there were well over 2,500 and more spring up every year. The Farm has been in our family since 1945, and we take great pride in and care of our fruits and vegetables. In addition to the above information, our produce is available here at the farm. Our desire to provide only the healthiest food has led us to transition The Farm to organic. We received our certification July of 2014. We are passionate about providing great tasting, highly nutritional food."

Wondering where a vendor’s farm is located? Want to know the best way to prepare a certain type of produce? Need canning advice? Then ask our vendors! 

One of the greatest attractions to coming to a market vs. a grocery store is the ability to build connections through talking directly to the farmer/food producer. So if you ever have questions about what you are buying, we encourage you to ask the vendors themselves as they are best experts at the market.  

The Richfield Farmers Markets' vendors grow what they sell. And they bring their products on a weekly basis to the market from within 85 miles of Richfield. Generally, the produce that you buy at our markets has been picked that morning or the day before. We currently allow one vendor at the Saturday market to sell wholesale produce grown outside of Minnesota in addition their own MN produce. We believe that this adds to the overall market service and accessibility.
