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.
