About the NEW East Isles Farmers Market
The East Isles Residents Association is partnering with The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board to create the first-ever Farmers Market on Park Board property. The Farmers Market is the brainchild of the East Isles Residents Association and was established as a means to further our mission of building community, promoting green spaces, and fostering neighbor relations.
East Isles is a destination in the summer months and the location for the market is a trifecta for residents, visitors and potential vendors.
With the Walker Library and transit stop to the east, Uptown/Lagoon Avenue to the south, The Greenway running parallel, and East Calhoun Parkway/Lake of the Isles just down the block to the west, the East Isles Farmers Market is destined to be a hit.
The East Isles Farmers Market hopes to inspire a healthy community by bringing local, sustainable, and mostly organic or pesticide-free produce to our high-density neighborhood. It will be accessible by bike, foot, or paddle board.
We Love Local
- We contribute to the success of local food growers, bakers, and makers by supporting local entrepreneurs and artisans.
- We strive to include women and minority-owned businesses to further an equitable marketplace. More than half of our vendors are women-owned businesses.
- We vet the quality of sourcing, production and growing practices of our vendors.
- We provide educational opportunities related to food, raingardens, sustainability and zero waste.
- We promote the Minnesota Cottage Food Law by encouraging residents and neighbors to participate in our Pickle Booth.
