ST. PAUL (April 22, 2013) — The Saint Paul Farmers’ Market, which has been offering fresh, locally-grown produce and goods to Minnesotans from its location on 5th and Wall streets for 31 years, will open for the 2013 season on Saturday, May 4. The original opening, scheduled for April 27, has been delayed due to today’s impending snow storm.
“The Saint Paul Farmers’ Market has been an institution for more than 150 years,” Mayor Chris Coleman said. “Saint Paulites know that when the Farmers’ Market is open, spring has truly arrived. I know I join all of Saint Paul when I say that I am genuinely looking forward to opening day.”
“We look forward to the new season with many new changes to the Market. The changes will help make shopping for locally grown goods and produce even easier than it has been in the past,” said Jack Gerten, Manager of the Saint Paul Farmers’ Market. “While we are disappointed that we have to wait a week, we welcome the onset of spring, and the Market, with excitement and anticipation.”
The downtown Farmer’s Market is located at 5th and Wall Street, Saint Paul. Hours are 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays, and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sundays, from May 4 through Nov. 23, 2013.
